What Can YOU Do to Make a Difference?

PolitiChicks.comFrom CEO/Editor-in-Chief Ann-Marie Murrell:

On an almost daily basis, I get several letters from people asking what they can do to make a difference in their towns & communities. This morning I received the following message from a PolitiChicks reader:

“What can I do to support true conservative values & candidates in the wasteland where I reside (New England)? Seriously, please tell me how I can help?”

Here’s my response:

As someone who lives in the wasteland, California, I feel your pain.

First and foremost, GET INVOLVED locally! Go to your local GOP or Tea Party headquarters and make sure you’re on their newsletter & receive e-mail alerts. Attend meetings, events, anything/everything that can keep you informed & aware throughout the year.

What are your gifts and talents? Do you like to write? If so, submit writing samples to a conservative website or even start a blog of your own. Are you a people-gatherer? Offer to host brainstorming meetings in your home to discuss local/national politics.

And is there anyone in your community who has a strong voice and could be a potentially great candidate? Or could that possibly be YOU? If so, start working now–don’t wait until the next election. Basically start finding ways to build up support for anyone/everyone who truly cares about protecting our republic–and don’t be afraid to speak loudly and proudly about your principles and beliefs, because that’s what Democrats do every chance they get.

Do you think the economy is better or worse than it was a year ago?

I’d like to add that it only takes a small group of people to make big differences in the world. Our Oklahoma PolitiChick Julia Seay was one of a handful of angry moms who worked tirelessly to take down Common Core in their state.  Against all odds, they organized parents and teachers and went straight to their legislature to fight for what they believed in–and so far, they have won.

So if you see or hear of something happening in your child’s school or classroom that you disagree with, you absolutely must speak out–even if you have to stand alone.  Take it to the PTA, the school board, the State, and if that doesn’t work take it to a National level and bring it to the attention of the media.

These days, you absolutely must do whatever it takes to fight for what you believe is right–because you better believe someone else is fighting just as hard for what is wrong.
