Our Pink House in WDC is already full of visitors, two were arrested yesterday morning at the confirmation hearing for Head of EPA. Leslie Harris and Diane Wilson bravely stood their ground against Pruitt and his polluting ways. One of our bedrooms is overflowing with pussy hats to be distributed for the Women’s March on Saturday. Today CODEPINKER’s flowed through the house creating visuals and painting messages on the hearts we will carry the next 3 days.
We bring many messages to this historic moment: Build Bridges Not Walls, Love & Support Each Other, Divest From The War Economy, Grow Local Peace Economies, Arms Are For Hugging, Love Our Muslim Neighbors, Welcome Refugees, Divest From Bloody Fossil Fuels and Human Rights for All. Share yours with us! Post a photo on our Facebook of your message and where you are carrying it. Some of us are writing what we are marching for on our hands, on tunics, cardboard hearts, or long banners we plan to hold high. We want to share the creativity of this amazing community and inspire each other to stay engaged in growing our activism and our local power.
Join us January 19-21 as we Rise, Love, and Resist systems of oppression and violence, and gather to build an interconnected, love-led movement.
On inauguration day in DC, we will begin at 7 am at Union Station and will start off with the One Billion Rising flash mob dance. We will do all we can to disrupt the Inauguration to say we will not stand with all forms of hate, racism, islamophobia and misogyny and instead be accomplices with the most vulnerable among us, who have been threatened by this new administration. Check out a full schedule of our inauguration activities!
Saturday, we will join Women’s Marches in DC, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Las Vegas, Austin, Asheville, NC, and Chicago. Check out our visuals and messaging. For more information and support, please contact [email protected]. Use the hashtag #riseloveresist as you rise in truth, power and love.
To charming and disarming,
Ann, Ariel, Farida, Jodie, Mariana, Mark, Medea, Nancy, Paki, Paula, Samira, and the CODEPINK team
PS. We spent last week in the halls of Congress raising a beautiful ruckus! Check out the media coverage of our actions for peace. Also, don't forget to get pink gear for the march from our CODEPINK Store — we have lots of new t-shirts!
