life after the women’s march: what next?
Keep Saturday’s protest going with 10 actions in 100 days.
Last weekend, millions of women and allies across the planet joined together for a network of marches to oppose President Trump and the misogynistic and hateful beliefs that got him elected. For many of us, the marches weren't only an act of community engagement and protest: they seemed to signal a new era that would colour the next four years.
But now the initial events are over, and our signs are packed away, some may be asking, what's next? How can we carry the weekend's message forward into our daily lives?
The organisers behind Women's March on Washington have responded with a new campaign, 10 Actions for the first 100 Days. Here, they'll take you through simple and effective ways to keep pushing for change. The first action: send a postcard to your senator about what matters to you, detailing what you marched for on Saturday. The group even provide downloadable postcards to print at home, and information about how and where to get them printed professionally. Head over to their website to take part and keep up to date with coming actions.
