To the Editor:

The Women’s March on January 21 was an exhilarating and hopeful experience for a contingent of 150 Roosevelt Islanders who attended in New York, and millions of others. Being counted and showing our strength is critical. Now, it is imperative that we and our neighbors follow up.

Several Islanders have discussed establishing a local activist group, taking notes from Indivisible Group. Part of a national network of rapid-response groups, Indivisible Groups are informal gatherings of neighbors to plan and execute pragmatic grassroots programs that reach out to elected officials.

This Roosevelt Island group’s first meeting will be on Thursday, February 9, at 8:00 p.m. Location information will be provided upon RSVP to Jennifer Dunning at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Let us know if you plan to attend and/or to get involved. All skills are welcomed to push for a truly great America. Your voice matters.

As anthropologist Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on promoting the views of Roosevelt Islanders to our elected officials at our meeting on February 9.
