What to think about for next week...
I've been thinking a lot about your desire to learn about activism. Ms. Doherty and I are scheming up an activism project for International Women's Day (March 8). The theme this year is Be Bold for Change - www.internationalwomensday.com/. A couple questions to ponder:
1. Do you know who your representatives are?
2. Do you have a group you could band together with to make things happen?
