Completely sickened, but sadly not surprised, to hear of another mass shooting in the U.S. today. I am thinking about the scientific method right now, and wondering-- if thoughts, prayers, and complete legislative inaction seem to be yielding nothing but greater and greater tragedy, then why not f*ing try to enact stricter gun laws? What will it take to get our governmental bodies to open their lock-tight minds to listen to the majority of Americans instead of the NRA? If you're in the mood to tell your reps how you feel about their inaction regarding gun control legislation, then feel free to download a pdf of this postcard and print from your home printer. It's often said that our reps DO listen to their constituents, although that's starting to sound like some whimsical folklore, given their inaction on the topic to date. Looking forward to midterms in Michigan!
Bring your postcards, stamps, concerns, and friends, cuz we're having a postcard write- in! Join us next week Thursday, Feb. 2, at Brooklyn Kitchen for a marathon postcard-writing session to tell our representatives what's top of mind in our district. We'll also have local artist-designed postcards for sale with proceeds benefitting Planned Parenthood. If you have any writing anxiety, don't sweat it. You're not alone 😨 We'll have some talking points to help. AND we'll have a donation box for tampons and pads for a miracle bag program for the local food pantry. Consider donating some much needed supplies! Thanks to Kate Coats for organizing and The Brooklyn Kitchen for hosting!
When: Thursday, Feb. 2, 5-9 pm
Where: Brooklyn Kitchen, 100 Frost Street
Snacks and wine will be provided!
