Yes, I want to #KeepMarching and be a grassroots leader!
#KeepMarching supports moms and family members who are taking the lead, doing more, and organizing in their communities, and creates on-the-ground connections for people to join together to make a difference. It gives form and function to what many are looking to do or may even be doing already on the fly: meeting with others to discuss current events, strategizing about what can be done to lift our communities and country, sharing frustrations, emailing each other petitions to sign, gathering for postcard parties, attending town hall meetings and rallies together, and more.
Here’s how it works:
-- As a leader with #KeepMarching, you want to work closely with MomsRising to build grassroots power. Maybe you want to serve as a storyteller and share your personal story with elected leaders or the media in your community or nationally. Maybe you're planning to set up tables at local festivals to register new voters as part of #MomsVote. Or maybe you are already meeting, organizing and mobilizing friends, family and other people in your personal network (which you could call your #KeepMarching Circle) for activities and actions to make a difference.
-- You are invited to join an exclusive, closed Facebook group with other #KeepMarching Leaders and MomsRising staff. You participate in monthly meetings with other #KeepMarching Leaders from across the country, with MomsRising staff, as well as with leading policy and advocacy experts that MomsRising invites to share their experience and knowledge with you. You help build a powerful community of grassroots leaders across the country, with whom you share ideas, brainstorm, provide mutual support and build grassroots power.
-- You are directly connected to MomsRising staff, who give you guidance, policy information, and legislative updates. You also get resources to boost and amplify your organizing and advocacy efforts, such as issue toolkits, trainings, social media and earned media support, and access to professional advocacy tools.
-- You get regular, specific and timely actions you can take as an individual or with your Circle that mirror the actions being taken by MomsRising's campaign teams at the moment, helping MomsRising extend our — and your — influence and reach.
