On January 21, 2017, over 5 million people worldwide participated in the Women’s March. If you are unfamiliar with the march, you can read details here. Chances are if you are on social media, you witnessed it unfold through your feeds in real time. When it was over, many people asked, “Now what?” While the march certainly got the world’s attention, action was needed.
Then the Women’s March introduced their new campaign- 10 Actions for the first 100 Days.
On their website, womensmarch.com, they share-
THE FIRST ACTION
Write a postcard to your Senators about what matters most to you – and how you’re going to continue to fight for it in the days, weeks and months ahead. We’re offering printable postcards for you to download.
You can go it alone, or consider inviting some friends, neighbors and fellow Marchers over for a drink or dinner sometime in the next ten days to talk about your experience and fill out your postcards.

You will find everything you need at the link above- a step by step description of what to do, postcards that you can print at home, a link to locate your local senator. You can even sign up to receive notifications of future actions.
At a time when so many of us in the United States are feeling stressed, scared, angry, uncertain, it is important and necessary that we band together and fight- peacefully, respectfully, and with kindness and dignity. #WhyIMarch
