Take Action Tuesday: Here's What You Can Do RIGHT NOW

Take Action Tuesday: Here's What You Can Do RIGHT NOW

2/27/17

We’re just over one month in with the new Administration and already so much has happened.  There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the issues CARE and CARE Action! focus on, and a steady stream of Executive Orders and troubling news reports leave us with big questions about the impact on the work we do to empower women, promote human rights and provide humanitarian assistance in the poorest communities. 

At the same time, we’ve seen a wave of advocacy and citizen engagement sweep the world like nothing before.  People of all political persuasions, races, religions and walks of life are coming together, standing up straight and speaking their minds about American values and America’s role in the world.

Are you ready to get in on that?  Here’s what you can do today if you have: 

  • 5 minutes – Watch Christiane Amanpour’s video about visiting a Syrian refugee camp with her son and talking with people his age about how their lives are different and similar.  Then, share it with your friends using #BetterThanTheBan. 
  • 30 minutesSign up to join CARE and Sheryl Sandberg to Walk In Her Shoes from March 8 – 14.  Then, form a team by emailing 10 friends and asking them to join you in supporting CARE’s international programs to assist women and girls living in poverty.  
  • Couple of hours – Get involved in #100Days100Dinners as a host or guest sometime before April 29 (the end of President Trump’s first 100 days in office).  This collaboration between Faith Matters Network, The Dinner Party and Hollaback! is bringing diverse groups of people to the table to talk about the things that unite us, divide us and what really matters.  On their web site you can sign up to host a dinner, join a dinner, or just learn more. You can use their discussion guide to help get the conversation going, or you can use our supplemental guide to add a CARE twist to your discussions. 

If you’re really ready to take your advocacy to the next level – join us at the CARE National Conference, May 22 – 24 in Washington DC. We’ll train you to lobby like a pro for the girls and women around the world who hold the promise and potential for ending poverty and making global transformation happen. Hope to see you there!
