After the March...

Whether you marched in Carytown, hit the streets in DC, or represented somewhere across the world, thank you! But what happens next?

We lobby! The General Assembly is in full swing, and we need you to fight for the bills you believe in! Take a look at our Events tab for upcoming lobby dates. We’re adding more all the time! 


Methods

We must model the values of inclusion, respect, and fairness. We believe each person has the ability to make positive change, and our methods should encourage local engagement as much as possible.

  • To exert leverage where it matters.

  • Focus on critical issues.

  • Targeting our own Members of Congress (MoC) for action.

  • Defending our constitutional rights and civil liberties.

  • Promoting grassroots democracy.

  • Practicing nonviolence in all actions.
