Bronxville-Area Residents Form Non-Partisan Organization for Political Activism PDF Print Email

By Jean Hanson and Eleanor Gustafson, Members, Greater Bronxville Indivisible


May 10, 2017:  Bronxville-area residents have formed a non-partisan group with the goal of becoming more politically impactful. The group, known as Greater Bronxville Indivisible, was founded as a result of a shared sense of alarm over the current administration of the country.

"Our top goals are to keep people informed of the issues and to create an organized outlet for activism," said Ellen Blais, a member of the steering committee of the organization. "The turnout at our meetings has been amazing. At our first meeting, we had a standing-room-only crowd. It shows how concerned our community is over the tone and tenor of the prevailing political agenda. People are looking for ways to make their concerns known and their voices heard," she continued.

"Indivisible groups are forming across the country. These are grassroots organizations and each is distinct. Greater Bronxville Indivisible is multi-partisan and diverse, including people from various walks of life and political parties," said Bruce Anderson, another member of the steering committee.

"We intend to provide support and outlets for members to take action on the issues of importance to them. There are so many issues--education, climate change, immigration, health care, gun safety, voting rights, and reproductive rights, to name just a few--and our aim is to aid in making voices heard on these important issues of the day," said Annette Adamiyatt, also a member of the steering committee. 

Greater Bronxville Indivisible's principles and purposes center on protecting the rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, particularly the First Amendment, on resisting efforts to erode civil liberties, and on upholding the positive spirit of tolerance and mutual respect embodied in the U.S. Constitution. 

"While individual members do not necessarily agree on every issue--and, in fact, many times do not agree on a particular issue--we are united in our goal of preserving our democracy," said Viji George, a steering committee member.  

The steering committee members include Annette AdamiyattBruce AndersonMaureen BartonEllen BlaisPat DrewAnna FoleyViji GeorgeEleanor GustafsonJean Hanson, and Chris Zufelt.

All residents of Bronxville and beyond are welcome to join. The next meeting will be held on May 23, 2017, at 7:00 pm at The Reformed Church of Bronxville, Edwards Hall. The organization's website is gbindivisible.org

This article is highly misleading. The group profiled are not non partisan . They are in fact a highly partisan progressive group with an Anti Trump agenda. They don't have the courage to admit what they are truly for. So they hid behind the moniker of non partisan .

Wake up Bronxville. The progressives want to steal everything you worked hard to achieve and give it to the lazy and undisciplined . That is how progressives derive their power. True charity is always there for the most needy in society . It is not necessary to forcibly extort the most successful to be charitable. It is something that comes naturally to people who achieve in life on their own merits.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
