Take Action Tuesday: January 16, 2018


One Year Later

It’s Take Action Tuesday and an important anniversary!  It’s been one year since President Trump’s Inauguration and the Women’s March on Washington, where thousands stood together in solidarity for women and girls around the world and our shared our hopes for the future.

Throughout the breakneck year that followed, millions of Americans stepped up like never before to advocate for immigrants, refugees, famine relief, food aid reform, foreign assistance funding, women’s health services and the basic human rights of people worldwide.  It was awesome! The sheer number of phone calls, emails, op-eds and meetings held by our advocates and supporters who spoke out about American leadership, compassion and responsibility was remarkable. And all we can say is this: CARE’s advocates are fierce and we get stuff done!

For this Take Action Tuesday, we want you to celebrate this anniversary with us. Seriously, we couldn’t have made it through 2017 without you, and if you’re hearing what we’re hearing, it looks like 2018 is shaping up to be another year for the history books. Here’s what you can do to help us get ready for 2018 if you have:

1 minute: Save the date for the 2018 CARE National Conference!  Join hundreds of fellow advocates in Washington, DC from May 21st – 23rd to learn, workshop, connect, inspire, organize, celebrate and take action on Capitol Hill. Set a calendar alert for February 1st – that’s when registration opens. If you’ve come to the conference before, you know how good it is.  If you haven’t, what are you waiting for? You’re going to love this.  Save the date, will ya? 

2 minutes: Watch this video about last January’s Women’s March in Washington. Share it on social media, tag 5 friends and help reignite the passion we felt last year.  We’re going to need your voice in2018, too!

15 minutes: Take The Camera:  We want you to make your own video and share it on social media.  Short and sweet, tell us what you’re fired up about and what you’re advocating for this year. Help us get people excited about advocacy in 2018 and grow our network of fierce CARE advocates.  Check out our DIY Women’s March Anniversary video toolkit with everything you need to make your film and post about it and check out this video for inspiration.
