Robert "Slate" Goodwin
Lead Organizer
Indivisible 5th District AL

I have always considered myself to be an activist. While in middle school, my father drove me to Montgomery, AL, our state capital. Why? So I could read from my Alabama Civics Textbook about the need of separation from church and state as others were protesting to keep the Ten Commandments in the capitol. Since then I have worked with many political campaigns in my community. A graduate from the University of Alabama, I taught middle school for 3 years before embarking as an organizer in New Hampshire during the 2016 elections. Now I am back home and working as an organizer on grassroots movements across the area.
