Last weekend, the world watched as over 5 million people joined together to march, speak, and show the world what causes matter to them. Some are calling the Women’s March demonstrations the largest demonstration in US history (DAMN!). The question now becomes, can people continue to stay involved? How can you follow up and take action so that your voice is heard and your cause stood up for?
The first way you can stay engaged is by continuing to support the Women's March on Washington, which will continue to take action every 10 days on specific issues. This week's objective; write your closest senator and let them know what causes matter to you. Click here to visit the official Women’s March website and learn how you can stay involved.
