Brought to you by the organizers of the Women's March

From their page with info: https://www.womensmarch.com/womensday


In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women's March, we join together in making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system--while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity. We recognize that trans and gender nonconforming people face heightened levels of discrimination, social oppression and political targeting. We believe in gender justice.

Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:

Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor

Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).

Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman

A Day Without a Woman reaffirms our commitment to the Principles of Unity, which were collaboratively outlined for the Women’s March. We are inspired by recent courageous actions like the "Bodega strike" lead by Yemeni immigrant store owners in New York City and the Day Without Immigrants across the U.S. We applaud the efforts of #GrabYourWallet and others to bring public accountability to unethical corporate practices. The Women's March stands in solidarity with the International Women's Strike organizers, feminists of color and grassroots groups in planning global actions for equity, justice and human rights.

When millions of us stood together in January, we saw clearly that our army of love greatly outnumbers that of fear, greed and hatred. Let's raise our voices together again, to say that women’s rights are human rights, regardless of a woman’s race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, gender expression, economic status, age or disability.

G.O.P. Health Bill Faces Revolt From Conservative Forces


The Republicans are trying to get this passed as fast as they can before even the Congressional Budget Office can get a report done on how much it will cost and who it will hurt. Because of Senate rules, the Republicans can't afford to have more than 2 of their own not vote for it. So calling your Republican Congresspeople is worthwhile, especially if you are in a state that expanded Medicaid

ACTION: This is a topic to call your Senators and Representatives on this week.

Script: Hi my name is [NAME] and I live in [ZIP CODE]. I'm calling because I am against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and opposed to the Republicans Healthcare plan. The Republicans plan puts a financial burden on sick people and will cause millions to lose their insurance coverage and I want [Congress Person] to vote against it.

(Add in a personal story or other talking point you'd like to hit, as you will.)
