It began with a Facebook message around 9 pm the other night.
A member of our community reached out to me because her high school aged son was helping to organize a student-led rally. The next morning at 7:30 AM. She wondered if I had or knew of someone who had a bullhorn for the students to use.
I did know someone and after a bit of back and forth, the fine folks at One Pennsylvania sent an organizer to meet the parent at 10 PM to make sure they had a bullhorn to use. And the rally went off quite well.
I do get a lot of these inquiries so we are putting together a little portable kit to help those in our community who organize rallies and events. The items for the kit are now part of our Amazon Wish List which you can access at any time. You can also make donations through our Crowdfund at any time.
When we have put together the kit, we’ll let you know and set up a simple process to lend it out.
This is another way to #AMPLIFY the work you do – to make available some resources to help you raise your voices. The Wish List is broader than our kit, but you’ll see the items easily enough – bullhorns, batteries, clipboards, etc.
Thanks to Diana for inspiring this resource.
