Hear Our Voice
The next action from the Women’s March on Washington will be for us all to get out and attend Town Halls.
The goals of the ‘Hear Our Voice’ events are:
- To educate Members of Congress about issues that matter to the Women’s March Network.
- To hold Members of Congress accountable for their recent votes on Trump nominees.
- To engage and mobilize thousands of women and allies in the political process and generate public nonviolent action.
- To hold at least one public protest, action, or meeting in each of the Congressional Districts across the United States targeted at each of the 535 Members of Congress.
We call on you to grab your pussyhats and attend a town hall meeting and let your representatives know what issues you care about. And if the representative pledges to work for your issue–feel free to thank them!
