Weekly Action: Women's March Prep

Hi Friends! This will likely be my only post this week, as I am busy getting ready to head to Washington, D.C. for the Women's March on Washington

Liza Donovan - Hear Our Voice
If you're headed to D.C., make sure you're following all the details on the Facebook page. Please also register at the Eventbrite page so the organizers have the most accurate headcount possible. This will give you a chance to sign up for email communications from organizers for up to the minute details on logistics. 

If you're headed to any one of the 370 (!!!!!) sister marches, make sure you're signed up on those local Facebook pages or websites for updates and information. If you're looking for a march near you, find one here.

If you are planning on marching on January 21, here's a great guide on what to bring and what to wear. Also, here's a list of great things to consider taking with you (snacks!), and what to possibly plan for (I am grabbing two bandanas from my closet now.) If you're going to be marching in D.C., here's the official list of what you are permitted to bring, as well as logistics, security, and transportation details.

If you have a few minutes, read the official platform for the Women's March on Washington here

"We believe Gender Justice is Racial Justice is Economic Justice. We must create a society in which women, in particular women—in particular Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, Muslim women, and queer and trans women—are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments."

If you have some funds to spare, purchase some awesome art, donate to your local march, or the national march.

If you've got pink yarn, knit some pussyhats or donate it to some knitters who have run out of yarn.


Friends, I hope to see many of you in D.C. this weekend (I'll be the one completely dressed in pink), or photos of you at marches around the world! Be safe out there - love to you all.

XOXO,
Meg
