“Dear PoPville,

I am wondering whether people are planning to participate in the strike on February 17 (another looks like it’s being planned as a follow up to the Women’s March but I think it’s not yet scheduled) and if they are, would they be interested in volunteer opportunities helping support groups that are being affected by the recent slew of executive orders? Such as refugees, the environment?”

About the General Strike planned for Feb. 17th:

“This grassroots movement is calling for a national general strike on February 17th, 2017 in defense of our nation’s constitution. Participants pledge to be non-violent. On the day of the strike, we will not go to work (unless absolutely necessary). We will not go to school (unless necessary). We will not spend any money (unless necessary). Instead, we will show dissent with unconstitutional governance through gatherings and activities to be organized at the local/personal level. Some communities are planning a day of service. Instead of work, strikers will dedicate their time to serving neighbors in need. Find your people. Make your plan. Spread the word…”
