Hello Friend of Bluebird Fairies,
I'm getting on a bus tonight headed to Washington D.C. for the Women's March on Washington.
Several weeks ago a foundation called "Amplifier" put out a call to artists to submit work from which they'd select pieces to turn into 30,000 posters for the march.
I submitted 2 pieces and they joined a group of over 5,000 from which 5 were selected. Mine were not part of that tiny group but I've made them into posters that will head down with me and Brian on the Peace and Justice Bus.
Here's one of the delightful new additions to Bluebird Fairies:
The world is going to have some dynamic energy tomorrow. Besides the March on Washington there are 613 (and counting) other marches happening. I think every state is having at least one and I just counted over 75 other countries on the list.
Take a look through the mission statement. It will clue you into the larger energy we're tapping into:
"Women’s March Global invites individuals and organizations committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion and those who understand women’s rights as human rights to join our local coalitions of marchers in representing the rights and voices of progressive people around the world.
As concerned citizens standing up for human rights, Women’s March Global immediately seeks to increase the number of coalitions participating in the upcoming global marches, while continuing to organize future campaigns. Women’s March Global is building and empowering a persistent global network that will organize future campaigns and actions in support of progressive values including women’s rights.
Women’s March Global is a proactive international movement, not a U.S. election-specific protest per se, which has galvanized people to defend women's rights and those of others in response to the rising rhetoric of far-right populism around the world."
So tap into this great sea of energy wherever you are and move forth with your positive actions as a citizen of this beautiful earth.
Be well and have fun!
