You can’t ignore patriotism in the month of July. But don’t spend it all on Independence Day. These organizations host events all month long that pretty much guarantee you’ll be amped up with patriotic activism long past the Fourth.

POWERFUL WOMEN LEADERS
“We’re really hoping we can make a statement with the Seventh: Change is coming. You can try and gerrymander but we’re not going to sit back and take it. And given the circumstance of our last congressman leaving because of a #MeToo issue, women want to make a statement as well.”
“Regardless of who you run against, you should be true to your values and never give an inch, because these are the things that are going to carry us through. I will do everything I can to make sure New Mexico is in a good place.”
