I don't know about you, but I am feeling overwhelmed by the barge of negativity and hate since the election and since the Women's March on Washington. I am feeling scared and angry by everything that is coming out of our new administration. Have you seen who is up for consideration for Supreme Court nominees?
There are so many things that I want to fight for and against, but I know I can get the most done if I choose one or two and put my energy, time and money behind them. It doesn't mean that these are the only things I care about or will fight for, but where I will place my focus to start. I can't just be outraged scrolling through Twitter, I have to start doing something. It's does mean I am starting by choosing to fight for LGBTQ rights over working against guns and choosing women's reproductive rights over the environment.
This weekend I'll be getting together with friends to talk about what we each want and can do. We've donated money and next we'll be contacting our representatives to Congress and the Senate. Each one of us has our own focus, but we feel stronger working together.
What are you doing next?
