Apparently this got published to my teaching blog instead of where it should have gone. Oh well! I am learning so much! For example, on the list of presidential actions below, which are the items that I should ask my senator Pat Toomey (PA-R) about? Which are the items I should call both senators (also:… Continue reading The lost files: Action Day 4
Alexis Lieberman is a citizen-activist force to be reckoned with. I am a just-keeping-up working mother lady who often skips days of activism because I Just Can’t Do Something Else on That Day. BUT: every time I do, I feel re-energized, like today. And I remain committed to fulfilling 365 days of action, even if they… Continue reading Action Day 20: Do (half of) what Alexis Lieberman does (and a bonus!!)
Alexis Lieberman is a Mt. Airy neighbor who attended the Women’s March with her partner Ilene and their child, Michaela, who is a wonderful babysitter and Lego building expert.

Huddle the troops. 2. Write a dumpload of postcards! 3. Assess successes.

THE LADIES ARE GONNA RAISE HELL TOMORROW. 25 women x 5 postcards each (MINIMUM) = 125 shrieks of “WHAT THE EFF ARE YOU DOING TO OUR DEMOCRACY???” Powerful. For the record, I also plan on sending love to my judicial and senatorial hunnies,… Continue reading Action Day 17: Prep for the YUGE postcard party!
Thank you, Alexis Lieberman, Mt. Airy neighbor, mom, and apparent superhero: 1. Two bills have been introduced into the senate by TedCruz, with companion legislation into the House, that, if passed, will allow them to target any Muslim organization by simply naming them terrorists. The IRGC Terrorist Designation Act, and the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation… Continue reading Action Day 16: Follow someone else’s well-researched roadmap on anti-Muslim legislation
Today I tracked this retrograde PA abortion bill. These bills–the ones that hit closest to home, in that they seek to tell me what to do with my womb and its contents, a state intrusion that no male has to suffer–get my hackles up the most. I actually do understand that people have a logic… Continue reading Action Day 15: Sign up to track throwback abortion bill (SB-3) in PA Senate.
