Join us in visiting Senator Gardner’s office to resist Trump! We’ll arrange to speak with a staffer about what ever topic has your blood boiling that day. Last week we had almost 100 people gathered on the sidewalk, and cycling through the office in groups of 10.
While waiting for our turn, we’ll keep the street active with sign waving and Chanting. Bring a drum, a whistle, a small flag to wave, a list of great chants you have been hearing.
Tuesday, Feb 7 5:30 PM, Stargazer Theatre 10 S. Parkside Drive, Colorado Springs, near Pikes Peak Street.
Announcement meeting for new non-partisan Political Action group, “Together Colorado Springs” (TCOS). Founded by CS Independent creator, John Weiss and several liberal community leaders, the group planned to have a paid staff helping to get progressive and liberal causes toward the top of local agendas.
There will be music, powerful speeches and other entertainment. They are asking $30 per person admission, but also promising that no one will be turned away if they can’t pay that amount.
Friday, CS Feminists “Are Human Rights Women’s Rights”.
Hosted by the Colorado Springs Feminists 7:00 PM
Private Residence 2727 N. Tejon , Colorado Springs,
Why do we fight for “women’s rights” if they’re encompassed by broader “human rights”? We’ll kick off the second installment of our Discussion Series with this question, and peel back the layers of these terms and their implications. No need to have attended the first installment to attend this one! Optional readings to inform the discussion are below.
“Women’s Rights are Human Rights” Hillary Clinton, 1995, at the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing.
“Are Women’s Rights Human Rights?” by Rosie Walters, 2013, available at http://www.e-ir.info/2013/07/20/are-womens-rights-human-rights/

Co. Springs’ own “First Strike Theatre” will present a lively and funny show feature local actors,
and custom written songs to fit our current political mess. They will do 2 shows, 2:15 and 3:15 . The event is Free. They might ask for donations??
The event is to “Celebrate” the birth day of “Raw Toos”, a non-profit that encourages turning guns into useful items that don’t kill people. There will be two performances, at 2:15 and 3:15 on Saturday, Feb 11 at Seeds Community Cafe at 109 E. Pikes Peaks. Its a small place, so place to arrive early.
If the drumbeat of bad news has been getting you down, come to this show and spend some time laughing about Mary Springer-Forse’s unique way of writing, and singing, about our current mess.
