The highest likelihood is that we won’t have answers on Election Day and many of us will go to bed on November 3rd with that 2020 knot of feelings we’ve grown accustomed to: uncertainty, cautious optimism, a sprinkle of healthy fear.
Tend to your election fatigue and emotional overwhelm with the healing power of community.
We deserve to process and heal in the company of open-hearted, compassionate women who empathize with the bouquets of emotions we’re all holding close to our hearts. We deserve sanctuary. We deserve a moment to pause, to make space for feelings, and to identify what we need to move forward.
We are stronger together. We build our resilience in the knowledge that we are not alone. The unbearable weight of uncertainty becomes lighter when we allow others to lend a hand.
The Napa Women’s Circle is offering two opportunities to be in community and revel in that powerful pause on Wednesday, November 4th, 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
Both Circles are designed for you to arrive as you are and take what you need. Gloriously imperfect is the way to go. Drop-in at any time that works for your schedule and stay for as long as you’d like. The Circle will take shape with each woman’s emotions and needs. No RSVP is necessary, simply join on Zoom if and when it serves your spirit.
Over 46% of eligible voters didn't vote in the 2016 election. In swing states across the country, turning out first-time voters and those who are unlikely to vote could dramatically change the electorate and make a real impact on races up and down the ticket!
That's why the Napa Women's Circle engaged with Vote Forward, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower grassroots volunteers to help register voters from under-represented demographics and encourage them to vote to bring Letter Writing Saturdays to our community.
It's SO EASY to participate! We print stacks of 20 pre-written letters for you. Your job? Write one or two sentences about why voting is important to you, address the envelope, add a stamp...and spend physically distanced, mask-wearing, quality time with other locals dedicated to ensuring everyone who is able and eligible casts a vote in this election. Plus music, voting information, a RAFFLE, and general merriment.
Join us for
Letter Writing Saturdays!
October 10th: 11 - 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
October 17th: 11 - 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
COST TO PARTICIPATE
No cost to participate for all cis and trans women, trans men, as well as non-binary people.
Reserve your spot no later than 5 p.m. the day prior (Fridays 10/9, and 10/16) so your team has time to prepare your supplies prior to your arrival.
