monday morning news Jan. 4, 2107 - Breakfast Reminder

A great line up of inspiration for you Friday Morning, 7:30 am, Village Deli!  

We will focus on just how we can participate, communicate, and advocate!  Folks who have resources for local, state, and national issues and actions will be presenting concrete things we can do right now, some from the comfort of our homes, to help monitor, inform, act and resist if necessary. If you've been bombarded with items on Facebook, locally, through friends and moms' groups... come to breakfast to help sort out some of the most effective and meaningful ways to participate in our democracy.

Jean Capler and Kathy Byers will talk about their Call to Action effort and how you can get involved.
Kate Cruikshank is back with information on just how to monitor the state legislature's actions this year.
Kate is bringing a young woman who will talk about her organizing efforts with new voters before the election.
There will be people with pink hats dotted around the Deli... know what that's about?  Come find out!

#pussyhat
Yeah, it might be a little silly....  but it can be SO much more than that!
It's public art.
It's a rallying cry.
It identifies friends in a sea of people.
It does GOOD!
Local women are knitting, crocheting or sewing fleece hats to benefit Planned Parenthood! They'll be sold to marchers for a $20 donation to Planned Parenthood! Stay tuned for more info on the local hat project!
If you can create one of these hats this week, bring it to the breakfast meeting on Friday.  Email regina.moore@gmail.com for information.


EVENTS:

HIDDEN FIGURES film opening on Friday, January 6th
Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. This will be at the Westside Showplace.
