LOCAL WOMEN ACTIVISTS ARE IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL
Women Will to meet at Feinstein’s office every Thursday
SAN DIEGO (February 1, 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.
“Women Will has grown tremendously in the past month. Our steering committee is a solid group of professional women and mothers who are strategically carrying out our vision toward four specific goals. Our supporters have grown 97% in the past month. We’ve built a strong foundation through our sisterhood that will guarantee our longevity,” said the group’s co-founder and chair, Dr. Tricia Gallagher-Geurtsen.
Representatives from Women Will will be meeting with Ryan Williams, Field Representative, at Senator Dianne Feinstein's San Diego District Office on Thursday, February 2, 2017 to demand that the Senator work with colleagues to overturn some of the recent Executive Orders. Members will also be sharing personal stories with the Senator to emphasize and illustrate how detrimental Trump’s Cabinet nominees would be if they are confirmed.
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 engagement 56to champion these causes and inspire others to do the same.
