To celebrate the spirit of creative resistance, we’re asking you to come with us for a day of action in person at the capitol on March 16. Join us on March 16 from noon ET - 2 PM ET as we leave love notes, declarations, and imaginative visions for the future we deserve. We'll be repurposing election signs and installing them on the Capitol lawn. Bring your creative energy – paint a sign or write a poem. If you are unable to be in Frankfort, local chapter organizers will deliver your signs and letters for you! Keep a look out for regional chapter events to create signs together before the day of action
