Hogseth, a wildlife biologist, wondered in early 2017 what he would tell his young children 15 years later if he did nothing. “I didn’t want to tell my kids, ‘Well, I was busy.’ ” He devoured the organizing manual of the Indivisible political group, began reading about political movements and called a meeting with a Facebook post.
