Here’s your post-Women’s March to-do list so we can keep the movement going!
I have never been prouder to be a woman than yesterday, as I watched the historic Women’s March and saw pictures shared by friends at marches all across the country.
Yesterday was the first step. Now to continue the real work…
Here is a helpful to-do list from Michael Moore, one of the speakers at the Women’s March.
Now, say what you will about Michael Moore, but he is a man who shows up and who gets things done.
Post-Women’s March To-Do List
1. Make calling Congress part of your new daily routine. “Each of you has one representative in the House and two Senators. They have a phone number: 202-225-3121.” Put that on your cell phone’s speed dial. You can put in your zip code and you will be connected to the right office. Each day Moore will be identifying the different objectives for calling. Monday’s objective is to tell our government that WE DO NOT ACCEPT BETSY DEVOS AS OUR SECRETARY OF EDUATION! Follow the websites ActionGroups.net and Indivisible for more information on making these phone calls.
3. Form your own Rapid Response Team. Get the names of 5-10 family/friends to form your Rapid Response Team. Then on a day when we need to act fast, THESE are the people you contact to get on the phone and get moving.
4. Take over the Democratic party. “We need new leadership, we need young leadership, we need women leadership, we need people of color, we need gay and lesbian and bisexual and transgender.” We need to get behind Keith Ellison, the only Muslim member of Congress, as our DNC chair.
5. Be a region of resistance. If you are living in a blue city or state, create the new normal. Create laws that show the rest of America what it looks like to have laws prohibiting discrimination. Show the rest of the country how it works.
6. Run for office. Run for city council, school board, or precinct delegate.
That’s it! Not so hard, right?
Print out your to-do list here so you can put it on your fridge or bulletin board and have a daily reminder:
