POWER TO THE POLLS This Weekend
One year ago, we made history at the Women’s March on Washington.
So many people asked me “WHAT’S NEXT?” that I started a list serve with that subject line. Now we know. We’re moving from a march to a movement.
This Saturday, January 20, we march again. The DC march begins at 11:00 am at the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial. More information is on Facebook.
On Sunday, the Women’s March founders will launch a national voter registration effort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The organizers chose Nevada because it’s a key battleground state in the2018 midterm elections, and because the city “was rocked by the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history” this year, according to their website.
We’re all more politically engaged than ever – let’s channel that energy into tangible outcomes in 2018! The voter registration tour will target swing states to register new voters, engage impacted communities, and harness our collective energy to advocate for policies that reflect our values. The goal? To continue uplifting the voices and campaigns of thenation’s most marginalized communities to create transformative social and political change.
Can't make it to Las Vegas or DC? Marches and events are being held around the country on January 20 and 21. Check here to find out what's happening near you!
On a personal level, “WHAT’S NEXT?” for me meant deciding to run for office. I'm running for the County Council because I believe I can make the most difference right now serving on the front lines of local government.
