Day 19 Action:
Now that we’ve all spent the last 19 days spreading The Resistance on Facebook, Twitter Instagram et al; we’ve called our reps (and others); we’ve downloaded apps and engaged in new social media forums; we’ve marched and protested and protested again… and again.
Now it is time to take this crash-course on Democracy and Revolution 101, and turn it into living breathing connections – offline and into the wild blue yonder.
In that spirit Women’s March on Washington has released the second of their 10 actions in 100 days: Huddle! The idea is very simple- gather a few friends for an informal conversation/action plan, within Feb 1-11, and make concrete next steps.
On their site, you can register your huddle group or register to lead a new one in your neighborhood. If leading isn’t your ish, you can pop in your zip and find a huddle already waiting for you. The site also has a great step-by-step for the entire process and even an agenda of what to do once you get together.
The outcome is simple enough too – meet some new people, get to know old friends better and walk away with one action you can all devote effort to for the following week.
Action & Organization
HUDDLE with a group that is already set up – or create your own and pick a date between now and Feb 11th. All the steps are laid out, even the agenda. Just bring snacks, yourself and a mind ready to get down to business! – Women’s March on Washington
DOWNLOAD the app (if you haven’t already) and post in the forum about your huddle so you can inspire others across the nation.
Ready? – And BREAK!
(See what we did there? Like football… because of the Super Bowl… we’re tricky like that.)
