Reaching Out; Reaching Up

This week’s themes are connection and confirmation. We of Action members are discussing ways to reach out, find common ground, and rise up together. Confirming mutual goals, patriotism and passion in support of the Constitution. We salute WofAs with the will to listen, the curiosity to ask, and the power to build bridges.

WofA is empowering all of us. It’s as simple as making a call or sending a message. Volunteers just published this week’s Weekly Blast, ready for action. Others are finding or starting events with impact. Together, we’re making a difference.

This group snowballed past 1,000 this week – wow! That’s a lot of friends. Sign up, come to a meeting, and help us decide when to hit the Google or hit the streets. Stronger together.

Reach out; reach up!
