SUMMIT, NJ - An estimated five million people worldwide participated in the January 21 Women's March on Washington, an event with a mission to " ...stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country."
The movement is now evolving into an action plan detailed as "10 Actions for the first 100 Days" corresponding to the traditional first 100 days barometer of a new Presidential administration.
Action number one of the 10 actions is a postcard initiative with action steps described at womensmarch.com as "Write a postcard to your Senators about what matters most to you - and how you’re going to continue to fight for it in the days, weeks and months ahead."
Four Summit women -- Andrea Stein, Tracy Allocco Keegan, Beth Little and Lacey Rzeszowski --have come together to organize and spearhead the implementation of 'action 1' in the Hilltop City, with three of them opening their homes for people to write postcards to their legislators "voicing their concerns and demanding accountability to their constituents."
The three-day 'Postcard Party', which will be held February 1 - 3 at the homes of Keegan, Little and Rzeszowski, is, according to organizers, designed to communicate that "behind every personalized card stands women who have made dozens of phone calls to their legislators. The Women’s March was not a moment. It is a movement. And it is happening in our neighborhood Feb 1, 2, and 3."
