To the Editor:
It’s hard to believe that almost a full year has gone by since Trump was inaugurated as President of the United States. (In fact, the latter part of that sentence is still hard to believe.) Like many of you, I spent the day after the inauguration in DC at the Women’s March, protesting Trump and everything he represents. That march ushered in, for many of us, a new era of activism and community engagement that has changed us forever.
Well, it’s a new year, requiring a new commitment to resistance, so take out your marching shoes. On Saturday, January 20, the second Women’s March will take place in New York City beginning at 11:00 am at 72nd Street and Central Park West. Please make every effort to go — and please know that you’re invited to travel and march with the Croton Democrats!
We will meet at 8:15 am on January 20 at the Croton-Harmon train station and catch the 8:45 train to Grand Central. From there, we’ll head to the march (either by foot or subway, depending on the weather).
The week before the march, on Saturday, January 13, join us at THE STUDIO, 160 Cleveland Drive, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm, for a sign-making session! Bring your markers, your poster board and your ideas. (Irreverent witticisms are especially welcome.) Together, we’ll channel our outrage into strong visuals and get ready to take to the streets the following week.
Our country is certainly different under Trump — angry, divided, and fearful. But those of us who oppose him are different too — stronger, more aware, and more determined than ever. Together, we’ll be something else in 2018: Successful in stopping Trump’s agenda.
See you on the 20th!
