TAKE ONLY THE ANGER YOU NEED
If we’re distracted, we’re ineffective.
If we let the lies deafen us or the cruelty deflate us, we cannot act.
So take only the anger you need.
A tiny spur moves a giant horse.
WOMEN’S MARCH ALERT!
The Women’s March – held on either Sat 1/18 or Sun 1/19 depending on the city – will be the largest gathering of like-minded voters before the November 2020 election! Now’s the perfect time to start getting the word out, and plan your first big voter drive of the year in one of our battleground states! (Extra credit if you make this a week of action, culminating with the March.) Find your nearest march HERE – keeping in mind that more are being added frequently. And if you need help getting started, sign up for a state-specific video training call–level up with a Train the Trainers call–or just contact us!
