I Did Not March, So Now What?
I understand why all these amazing women (children, men, and families) were out there.
I understand that we want change and we want others to hear what we have to say.
I know that the art of protest goes back many, many generations. I respect all of that.
Change is possible.
So I want to take things in a different direction. I want to find those things that encompass women and women's rights and support them after the march. I went on a quick internet search and I must say I was overwhelmed with all that there was so I want to share a few of them I found that hopefully some of you will reach out to as well.

You can also take time to research statewide things going on as well as local. Keep informed with when the next election is, what is being voted on, talk to locals, go to meetings, show support in anyway that you can.
Here is how you can contact government officials.
Change is possible!
Protest and make some noise. Love your family. Spend time with friends. Be present. Tell your story. Offer a hand, an ear, or a heart.
Do what you can, in your own way and even though you may not be surrounded by 3 million, and you may not be in pictures all over social media, but know you are doing something to help the generations that come after you.
