Day 1: #educate

Yesterday we marched. In numbers unseen for decades. We marched in peace, love and solidarity. We marched in the streets, in public spaces, online and on government property. We marched with our children, our parents, our grandparents, our friends, our communities.
Now we continue the work. We educate, agitate and organize.
The Women’s March has put out 10 actions for 100 days. Worldwide, we can send the message that we will fight for gender equality everywhere. That no matter who you are, even the President of the United States, women have value and treating them as if they don’t is unacceptable. We must send a message to every government that women’s rights are human rights, and we will accept nothing less than action to improve the condition of women’s lives everywhere.
Action 1 / 10
THE FIRST ACTION
Write a postcard to your local councillour, MLA & MP about what matters most to you—and how you’re going to continue to fight for it in the days, weeks and months ahead. We’re offering printable postcards for you to download.
You can go it alone, or consider inviting some friends, neighbors and fellow Marchers over for a drink or dinner sometime in the next ten days to talk about your experience and fill out your postcards.
Suggestions on Canadian campaigns: 
Canadian Women’s Foundation // Taking Action
Send your pussy hat to your MLA! // Pussy Hat Project 
Knit a uterus, and send it to your representative asking them to take your rights seriously. (An oldie but a goodie).
