I grabbed a quick snack at home and then my husband and I biked down to our local community sister solidarity march for Women's March movement yesterday. By far this is one of the largest gatherings I have seen in my community since Obama visited our town during his first campaign run. It was empowering, it was angry, it was peaceful, it was a warm up and a steady stream of movement in our downtown.
It was amazing to see the world wide response yesterday but I also know that there is still so much to do. I was excited to see a very organized next campaign called 10 Actions 100 Days. The first action is postcard writing to senators. Will you join?
It started to come together for me why the Pussyhat Project had such a big appeal to me (besides the knitting element) it was that it was a handmade element. Maybe you made your own hat, or maybe you connected to a hand maker through the project or it was an aunt or a friend of a co-worker. However it happened you connect with something handmade not bought in the department store. It stood as a symbol of the movement.
So though I thought my pink pussyhat knitting was done, I am formulating a plan to continue to knit hat for those who would like to donate to causes that support this movement. I will be developing this more in the coming weeks stay tuned and let's keep the movement going together.
