Congressional Crime Scene Postcards To Send A Message After The Women’s March
The organizers of this weekend’s Women’s March on Washington are suggesting as step one of activism after the protest that Americans “Write a postcard to your Senators about what matters most to you – and how you’re going to continue to fight for it in the days, weeks and months ahead.”
There are many possibilities for the kind of postcards you could send to your member of the House and your US senators, including the postcards designed by the march organizers themselves. Of course, you might want your postcards to stand out from the great big mail bag pile.
One alternative, then, is this Congressional Crime Scene postcard, design. It’s from a photograph we took while at the march on Saturday, showing the empty field in front of the U.S. Capitol where the Trump inauguration had been held the day before. All that was left of Trump celebrations were scattered portable toilets, discarded plastic ponchos left on the ground, a green fence to keep the riff raff out, and the yellow tape on the fence, warning that the U.S. Congress itself had become a crime scene.
Will that crime scene tape have to remain in place until the next congressional elections in 2018?
