What Next?

What NOW?  What do we do after the marches on Saturday?

How do we take all that energy and passion and and momentum . . . and push a little further?

Well.

The folks who organized the DC March have a plan!  As a follow-up to the Women's March they have launched a new campaign:  10 Actions/100 Days.

Postcard-preview

Every 10 days - for the first 100 days of the new administration - Hear Our Voice will take action on a new issue we all care about.  You can read more about the campaign here -- and you can sign up for email alerts.

This week?  Action 1/10:  Write a postcard to your senators about what matters most to YOU -- and how you're going to continue to fight for it in the days and weeks and months ahead.  You can download postcards from the site -- or you can use any old postcard you may already have on hand.  (The postcard design isn't important --- but the message you write on the postcard IS!)  

Just write what's in your heart -- about the issues that matter most to you.

If you don't already know the addresses for you senators, the site has a nifty little tool that will spit out their address if you provide your zip code.

This is a quick, easy action that you can take TODAY.

I've been calling my representatives, but I think it's time for some letters. Something I learned from a Government in Action class is to try and find out the name of the Legislative Assistant in your reps. office handling the issue you're contacting them about and direct your correspondence c/o them. I don't know if it makes a real difference but I did call my representatives' offices to ask who to address my letters to concerning healthcare and Planned Parenthood funding. Write, right now!

I have my postcards all ready to go as well! I have also hooked up with a group that will be going to our repugnicant senators office every Tuesday. So much awesome and I am sure just what the staff is eagerly awaiting - the arrival of a group of well-spoken (and out-spoken!!) women. I almost feel sorry for them... okay, not really! LOL XOXO

Jo

Thank you for giving us that nudge to continue to be activists! Kat also had some good ideas. The word "repugnicant" totally cracked me up!

Postcards done - I used my list from last week's Think Write Thursday as inspiration for my content.

Having worked in a Senate office, I can say that even if every single word in a letter or post card is not pored over, they do pay attention to them! I can remember when certain votes were coming up or issues were being discussed, they would count the numbers and pass along that info at a minimum to the Senator.

Of course, none of us can predict then what *that* person will do with the info - but that's no reason to not communicate!

Manise

Great idea and thanks for the link.

Debbie Kuppusamy

Thanks so much for the info. I'm going to get these out this week.

I have been writing constantly (on-line as well as real mail). Because writing is an action it makes me feel like I am truly involved. Someone at the other end is keeping a tally of how much mail and to which "side" the writer belongs. Every word you write will matter! Thank you for showing another way to make a difference.
