A couple of days after the presidential election, a group of women were having a post-mortem over coffee. One of them suggested they start a private local facebook group to discuss politics. The rest, as they say, is history. One of these women did indeed start the facebook page, and within a few days the group’s numbers had grown, each added member adding members, by a couple hundred. It was decided a face to face meet up was in order, and about a hundred people showed up. The numbers on facebook kept growing.
We are stronger and more productive together. As individuals, we can only do so much. We only have so much energy after full days at our jobs, balancing our family lives and our own self care. But together, we extend our passion and determination to make the world a better place. We can utilize each other’s strengths to tackle each and every issue to ensure our lawmakers and leaders remember who they work for. If you feel overwhelmed or fatigued by the work necessary to challenge the Trump administration, join with us and we’ll help each other.
