After the first Women's March, Melissa Anderson was inspired. She's a regular person, just like so many of us, who was jolted into action by the election and by the current administration. When she found out that the organizers of the first Women's March on Roanoke were not going to be able to organize a second one, she jumped in to help. She reached out to BRRAVA (the Blue Ridge Resistance Alliance of Virginia). The group sprang to action and made the Women's March on Roanoke their top priority, working tirelessly in November, December, and into January to create the electrifying event that so many of us experienced. In this blog, Melissa takes the energy generated from the March and delivers a Call to Action for a year-long sustained effort to bring about change in the Roanoke Valley and in the nation.
