Dear Members of the Magnet Community,
Within the Magnet Theater Community, there are many who feel inspired and want to take action against the new administration’s intents and policies. Some may feel overwhelmed or confused and are seeking guidance. The Magnet has always been a place that has provided support for its members in and out of the theater. It is important that we find a time and place for members of the community to come together to put frustration, sadness, anger (and all the other possible emotions being felt right now) into action.
We’re interested in creating a space offering guidance on taking action and how to resist/speak out during Trump’s first 100 days. This will be a place to seek and give support for various resistance efforts: writing postcards to senators, emailing + calling representatives, brainstorm other ideas, etc. On-site monitors will volunteer for 2-3 hours at a time. Materials (food, beverages, index cards, postcards, poster supplies, etc) would be provided by those attending.
As a monitor (a volunteer to be physically in the space for a period of time) or as a reference/resource (for some clear, actionable efforts), you will help guide people who come to the Training Center in the right direction. We are looking for people in the Magnet Community who would be helpful in either capacity! If you are interested in monitoring or otherwise serving as a reference/resource, please complete the survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/vZWzJS6zfc2NYJEG3
The first meeting of the Alliance will be this Wednesday 2/1 from 12-7pm at the Training Center – Room E. All members of the Magnet Community and their friends are welcome to drop by for any or all of this time.
If you’re interested in joining the resistance, please join us.
