PostCard Writing For Change 2018
We have 3 spectacular events planned for the Summer of 2018! All events are on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-7:30pm! Check the article in the Marin IJ here: http://www.marinij.com/lifestyle/20180615/san-anselmo-yoga-studio-organizes-postcard-writing-for-change-event
June 26th – L’Appart Resto – the French love to protest and we love to drink wine on their deck and write post cards to our Senators and Representatives!
For this first event, we will be writing to California senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein, Representative Jared Huffman, State Senator Mark McGuire and State Assemblyman Marc Levine.
We are writing on 3 issues: Gun Reform, Women’s Rights and Children!
We are also asking them to take action, like Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley’s visiting a child detention center and bringing this part of the immigration enforcement regime out of the shadows. Check out Merkley’s efforts (https://www.facebook.com/jeffmerkley/videos/10155510407061546/), learn about Jeff Session’s new “zero-tolerance” policy which warns that children will be separated from their families (http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/386634-sessions-illegal-border-crossers-will-be-prosecuted-families-may-be) and take a look at the broader immigration detention system in which children and their families are embroiled (https://www.globaldetentionproject.org/countries/americas/united-states).
July 17, 2018 – Cucina – we are taking over the picnic tables on the bridge and setting up shop!
August 21, 2018 – TBD
This is what our post card looks like! Initially, we didn’t have our name on the card. We decided it was important that we put our name on it, we believe in communicating and creating change! We Believe!!!

We supplied the post card writing team at The Seminary with cards, we are stronger together!
