Ready to Resist?

After the Women's March many members a re feeling invigorated and looking for ways to get more involved. Right now, efforts are focused on reaching out to your Members of Congress during the recess from February 18-26th when they are back home. Chapter suggests you look into:

  • In Aurora social workers in Rep. Coffman's district will attempt to meet with the Congressman. Contact Sarah Lincoln or the Chapter office for details.
  • In Grand Junction join the event at Rep. Tipton's office. Stand with others in the community to demand a real town hall meeting.
  • Register and find a local planning meeting or action event today thru
  • March on Colorado is still evolving and wants to serve as a hub to help people direct their efforts in a meaningful way to activities already underway.
  • First we marched, now we huddle. Huddles are part of the 10 Actions for the First 100 Days campaign, launched at the national Women’s March. The plan is to mobilize millions to win back the country and world we want.
