Marches and Protests · Use Your Power, Recruit Friends

Invite a Friend to Come With You to Marches

Are you going to the March for Truth, the March for Pride and Equality, or another? Invite at least one friend to come with you.

First, please read the post titled Learn to Welcome People to the Movement, Period, Full Stop:

Part of your power is the power to encourage others to join you in protest. If you’re going to any of the marches this month, make a point of inviting others to come with you. If you’ve already invited people to come with you, try to add someone who has never come to a protest march before, or hasn’t come to one in the Trump era.

Be prepared to offer extra help. Do they need a ride? Do they need money for lunch or snacks? Do they need cold-weather gear? See what you can do to remove whatever’s standing in the way of their participation.

It’s not about offering someone an engraved invitation. It’s about using your power as someone your friend respects and trusts for good. You matter, and they matter. Going to protests matter. Join forces and do so together.
