“Public pressure has a very real impact on political power. Don’t be silent. Don’t be invisible.” –Charles M. Blow, NY Times
Here comes inauguration day. As many of you know, I am a progressive voter and this past election season and the November election dismayed me. I’ve been thinking about what I could I do or say that could make a difference.
This morning I read the New York Times opinion piece by Charles M. Blow and was heartened and encouraged to take action. I am not going to turn on the TV coverage of the inauguration on January 20th. On January 21st, I’m planning to participate in one of the many women’s marches that are happening across the country in solidarity with that day's Women’s March on Washington to highlight support for women’s issues. Perhaps if enough people take enough positive steps, our collective voices will be heard!
