Take Action: November 13, 2017 Reach out to Millenial women

Mormon Women for Ethical Government (MWEG) hopes more Millenials will join our efforts.  We’ll be posting actions, about once a week for the next few weeks, that you can take part in to help improve our reach among young adults.

In the video that follows, the images capture a few of the myriad ways that MWEG has encouraged connection among political allies and rivals, those from different backgrounds, and women of all ages.  Sometimes we look too far beyond the mark when asking for results from our political behavior. We want the macro changes, we want cultural revolution. And yet, it’s in the smiles, the hugs, and the unity that the real work of politics occurs. Rebecca Charlton McCulloch, chair of the Millenial Outreach committee, wrote this: “Over the past few months, I’ve had the ability to hug and share smiles with women who need me to hear them – from assault victims to refugees to educated academics who seek social justice. Each encounter has changed me, regardless of the larger outcomes. I invite you to enter into this connection. Begin to share the understanding. Hear the stories. Let your heart change. I invite you to participate in Mormon Women for Ethical Government.”

Action: Share this video on social media and a small (one sentence) invite that includes why you think the group matters for Millenials. Please tag the video #countryoverparty so that we can track our participation numbers.
