Well, 2017 was hard, amiright?
But 2018 is off to a glorious start as millions of women and their allies marched all around the globe in recent weeks. Here in the Winston Salem area, our Triad Women's March on the Polls was a huge success. Crowd estimates ranged from more than 3,000 to almost 5,000 people, easily one of the biggest actions that has ever taken place in the city. It is a harbinger of things to come if we stay busy, and do the necessary work of democracy.
So, what does our resolutions list need to look like for this exciting New Year?
Well, we need to be registered to vote. And if you are, then reach out to friends and neighbors and make sure they are registered also. As we get closer to the midterms, we'll keep folks posted on getting to the polls to vote.
Secondly, pay attention! Follow our Facebook posts, get our emails, and retweet us. We are trying to get local information into your hands regularly, but you can't participate if you aren't aware of what's going on.
Third, we are working on programming for our monthly 3rd Thursday meetings at Green Street Methodist Church (639 S. Green Street, WS). At these meetings, you'll hear speakers discuss issues that are of critical importance, and meet others in the area who care as much as you do about us resisting this administration.
And finally, we'll also be having fun gatherings, too, where you can share a beverage and get to know the other people who are working in our group. All work and no play is no way to run a resistance!
