Hillary Clinton congratulated the founders of progressive advocacy group Indivisible for their inclusion on Time’s yearly “100 Most Influential People” list Wednesday.

“It’s wonderful to see @LeahGreenB and @EzraLevin recognized for their contributions through @IndivisibleTeam, one of our @OnwardTogether partners,” the former Democratic presidential nominee tweeted, linking to the profile of founders Ezra Levin and Leah Greenberg.

“Eventually, the husband-and-wife team’s Google Doc became a movement. Every week along the campaign trail, I was greeted by folks organizing local Indivisible chapters. They came from all walks of life and found solidarity in their work together,” Pressley writes. “Their contributions to take back the House and rewrite the job description for Congress were commendable.”

Indivisible formed shortly after President Trump’s election, starting with an online handbook written by former congressional staffers as a how-to guide for nonviolent resistance to the incoming administration, using a similar model to the conservative Tea Party movement by emphasizing grass-roots activism and attending local events such as congressional town halls. Pressley was the second woman candidate endorsed by the group.
