7. Virtual March Helps People with Disabilities Join the Women’s March on Washington
“The Disability March organizers invite people living with disabilities to submit their names, photos and a statement on why they want to "march." The images and text will be uploaded to the website in time for the Women's March on Jan. 21, creating a virtual archive of people showing solidarity with the main event in Washington, D.C.”
8. Break Some Bread, Y’all.
100 Days, 100 Dinners is a movement to coordinate one dinner every night from Jan. 20 to April 29. The concept? “For millennia, sharing a meal has stood as one of the few things that all of us—whoever we are and wherever we come from—have in common. In the wake of this divisive election, we're hungrier than ever for spaces to break bread, be heard, and build bridges across lines of difference.”
Sojourners doesn’t typically endorse products or apps, but if you need a breather — even a virtual one — check it out.
