so many things to do today…
TV: many experts are recommending that you can set your television to a channel not carrying the event in DC, or news of that event. But Snopes suggests that is really not a strategy. (I’m doing it anyway)
Prepping for action and gathering up others:
Jan 21 Women’s March – I do have friends and colleagues headed to DC for this event, and there are marches in all major cities across the nation. (Like-minded men can join in as well!) Here’s a New Yorker take on all of this.
From 2 Hours A Week:
A DAY FOR GATHERING STRENGTH
Welcome to the New Future.
It depends on us.
It has been an exceptional two months. We are ready to meet a truly exceptional and uncertain future. It’s hard to overstate how overwhelming this time has been. It’s by design. Let’s stay focused, because it will get harder before it gets easier. We will not be overcome.
The good news is this: People have sprung into action. We all know 700% more about our political process than before the election.
We had an amazing 2HAW meeting last weekend, attended by the executive director of the Common Cause NY. This incredible woman, who has been an activist for four decades, told us that we’re on the right track. She also said: be tedious. Choose the one or two issues that you care about. Learn everything you can and find organizations to help amplify your voice. Tell your supermarket cashier how you feel, tell your family, your friends, your Facebook friends. Wash, rinse, repeat. Be tedious, be relentless. We’re here for you, and we are so glad you’re here for us.
Let’s march together this weekend!
