LOCAL WOMEN ACTIVISTS CREATE PHONE BOOTH FOR ACTION
Women Will to Host Pop Up Phone Booth in Bird Rock
SAN DIEGO (March 24, 2017)-Like hundreds of other small groups nationwide Women Will formed the week after Trump's election. Inspired and energized by the Women’s March, a group of working mothers from La Jolla knew they could do more. Incorporating The Indivisible Guide and with four major goals in mind - utilizing a quick response team to pressure legislators into resisting Trump's agenda, supporting candidates for open senate seats that are pro-choice, supporting the local immigrant and religious minority community members in retaining their rights, and using their members to strategically engage in protests and other civic actions that align with their vision, they are focused on strategies that will be effective. The fight is personal for all of the women and they do the political work with love.
Representatives from Women Will will be hosting a pop up phone booth in front of the Starbucks in Bird Rock from 9am-noon on Saturday, March 25 as a partisan effort that will allow anyone to call their representatives about any issue.
“The goal is to encourage involvement and engagement by all during this unique time in history. We are putting the power in the hands of the people,” said the group’s co-founder and chair, Dr. Tricia Gallagher-Geurtsen.
Women Will pledges to promote and protect the rights of women, immigrants and minority communities through political action, partnering with like-minded activists, and community engagementto champion these causes and inspire others to do the same.
