Happy Friday, FAMily!
First and foremost, we wish safety, peace and protection to all those attending the Women’s March this weekend. Remember to allow space for marginalized voices and committed allies to be heard.
In the comments of this post, let’s see some of your signs!
1. Based on recent dialog across the #TimesUp movement as well as within the Women’s March, we are proud to introduce inclusive social justice education. This will be a weekly blog post curated by our own awesome moderator Ayla. If you’d like to learn more about her mission or support the work she does, please contact her directly. Thank you Ayla!
Today’s Blog Post: On The Unity Argument
Please remember that social justice is tough work and it may not always be easy to hear the things we all must learn. Allow yourself space to absorb and show others respect even if you disagree.
1. A government shut down may or may not still be avoided, pushing funding availability to February. But what about the Dreamers? Word is the GOP is wavering on every potential reform for immigration. I wonder why that is?
Call our senators and demand a DREAM act that keeps the promise of this administration.
Gary Peters: 202-224-6221
Debbie Stabenow: 202-224-4822
2. Call every republican senator and ask them why their “pro life” stance doesn’t extend to children already born. CHIP needs to be addressed in the long term. As Anne would say, you know what to do!
3. The senate needs ONE MORE vote to repeal the Net Neutrality Repeal. Even though the GOP administration will likely veto this vote, it still sends a message that We The People don’t want it.
Call any republican senator you can and let them know.
As always, we’re happy to have you with us this week and always.
Anne, Anne, and Jen ❤️
