Hi Don,

I want to show you this artwork I made to commemorate my day at the Women’s March on January 21, 2017. I call this artwork “Pussycat with Pussyhat.” Some of the details in the artwork reference symbols and phrases with which you are familiar, such as the pussyhat and “I grab back.” But I will share with you some of the details that are specific to my family. I included in the artwork an image of the poster my sister made, and I included an image of the poster I made. I also attached an image of one of the official march parachutes that I helped to paint in preparation for the march. I am most proud of a note I included from Planned Parenthood; the note thanks me for the contribution I made in honor of my one-year-old nephew and three-year-old niece, prompted by your election to office. Finally, there is a photo in my artwork of some of my family members and friends who joined together to attend the march. This was in fact my sister’s first time attending a political march. So I thank you for igniting her motivation to engage in the political climate of our nation and for pushing her into the role of an activist.

You Are In My Thoughts,

Wendy
