Tomorrow, like every fourth Tuesday of the month, is our monthly letter writing meeting. Same time and place, so please come if you can! You shouldn’t have any more snow and ice to worry about, so there shouldn’t be any excuses or cancellations.
We’ll provide you with the urgent actions, the writing supplies, and postage that you need to write these letters and to get them sent. All you need to provide is your wonderful self, and a few dollars to pitch in for postage costs, plus extra money if you wish to purchase food or coffee. That’s pretty much it. That’s not too hard, right?
We mentioned last week that VAWA could come up for a vote in the House some time next week. Not only is this true, but the version that will be coming up for a vote will be one that doesn’t include provisions for LGBT women, and strips down the protections for Native American women. This is unacceptable, and the big reason why VAWA expired last year. We need Congress to come together on one version of VAWA and one that includes provisions and protections for LGBT and Native American women. Therefore, as part of our letter writing meeting this week, we will be writing Letters to the Editor for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as part of our meeting. If you’re tired of writing letters to foreign governments, or want to write on a domestic issue for a change, then this meeting is your chance to do so. Please come if you can.
As always, the meeting is from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Hartford Coffee Company. Hartford Coffee Company is located on the corner of Hartford and Roger. See you tomorrow!
