So with everyone’s mind on the birth control ruling from SCOTUS, it is only fitting that we think of as many ways to combat the fallout from such a ruling as we can. Luckily, the Secular Shethinkers are already on this one.
Are you so mad at the recent SCOTUS rulings that you literally can’t even?
Are you filled with rage and don’t know what to do with it?
Well start to Can Even!
Join us, as we Lobby Hobby against Hobby Lobby!
Through out the month of July, we are organizing local protests across the United States outside Hobby Lobby Stores.
We will pass out pamphlets explaining why we’re there. These pamphlets will also have a listing of other crafting stores
in the area, as well as information about activities in August.
In August we are planning “shop-ins”. We will go to Joanne’s, Michael’s and other crafting stores and buy crafting supplies
for the September activities. We will have new pamphlets made for August to hand out to customers and employees explaining
our August activities and upcoming September activities, and also inviting them to join us in D.C. in October!
September is the month we get our craft on!
Glue, knit and decoupage your rage into a package/letter to send to your congressperson and Supreme Court justices!
Let them know we’ll be in D.C. in October, we’re pissed and WE VOTE!
Saturday.October 11th: This is the day all of our work comes to a head. We will rally together in D.C. outside the Supreme Court and our voices
will be heard! Speakers and events for the day are in the works right now. Drive, ride, walk, or bike to D.C. and have the
chance to have your voice heard!
If you want to be involved or volunteer, join the facebook event at: https://www.facebook.com/events/1447137122206524/?ref_notif_type=event_mall_comment&source=1
Plan local protests for July and post them to the page. Then plan local shop-ins and post those as well. Get together with
friends for crafting in September. Share ideas and stories and give support. Invite friends to the event!
We need your voice! We want your voice!

This activism is great because it hits all the important buttons: It aims to hit Hobby Lobby in the pocketbook, be loud about dissatisfaction in the direction of the people with power, and educating the public about why this sort of “exemption” is unacceptable. All of which have a proven track record. It is focused with a concrete goal, and that is the best way to help people with uteruses on this.
RSVP on Facebook to get more updates for this. The important thing to remember is that despite how you feel right now, you are not powerless. You have a voice. Use it.
