SolSun Call for Action for April 1-15, 2017

***SOLIDARITY SUNDAYS PINNED POST***
April, 2017

[Note: It's Spring Break and I'm off to South Padre Island to get waaaaaasted! APRIL FOOLS! (I don't even know where South Padre Island is). But for real though: I, your trusted Daily Action writer + poster, am taking a vacation, heading to Italy tomorrow to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. I'm convinced that #RussiaGate will explode while I'm gone, and that I'll get a 2am text that impeachment hearings are underway and then I'll have total FOMO—but we'll see. Point is, I won't be writing regular Daily Actions for the next week and a half. Leslie Dotson Van Every will do some, but she'll be extra busy holding down the main SolSun fort, since Jennye Garibaldi is also on vacay, riding bikes on volcanoes on the Big Island. I'll pop in here and there, but for good daily Calls To Action (CTAs) please look to 5calls.org; Daily Action; and the Indivisible FB page. This will be the longest I've gone without writing daily about politics since the damn election, which I imagine will be both relaxing and liberating, and also...hard? Weird? We'll see. I WILL be hosting Rome's first SolSun meeting on the 9th tho, and will def post pictures! Ciao e grazie mille for being on this wild ride with us!]

Mark your calendars and get your marching shoes ready, because this month is (quite necessarily) action-packed. Here's just some of what's coming down the pipe. Planning to march in your area? Consider coordinating with local SolSun chapters and marching together—this will be a suggested discussion topic for chapter meetings on the 9th. There will definitely be Bay Area SolSun contingents marching—please comment in the thread below and let us know where YOU plan to march, and for which ones!

*Fight For $15: 4/4 http://fightfor15.org/april-4-announcement/

*April SolSun Meetings: 4/9 https://www.solidaritysundays.org/get-involved/

*Tax March: 4/15 http://taxmarch.org/

*March For Science: 4/22 (Earth Day) https://www.marchforscience.com/

*People's Climate March: 4/29 https://peoplesclimate.org/

Also, the next Congressional Recess is April 10-21st (which includes Passover, Good Friday, and Easter), so plan for some townhalls, office visits, and more! (Also: Radical Resistance Seders?! Easter Egg hunts with call scripts + actions hidden inside the eggs?! Let's get creative!).

April is here, which means It's Aries season and I'll get all astrological on you for JUST a second—"As the first sign in the zodiac, the presence of Aries always marks the beginning of something energetic and turbulent." Let's harness the courage, optimism, energy, and confidence of the ARIES and let April be the month that it all comes tumbling down.
