March On NYC.

Dear Friends,

On Monday, we celebrated the life of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. and we find that so many of his profound words still have so much meaning in today’s world.
One of his most famous quotes reads: Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

And it is in that spirit that we are writing to you. The Women’s March Alliance is organizing a march this Saturday and we wanted to urgently invite you to join. We received the following email yesterday from ATPAM:

Dear Member of ATPAM –

I invite you to join IATSE President Matthew D. Loeb, myself and sisters and brothers from other IATSE NY area locals as we take to the streets for the New York City Women’s March this coming Saturday, January 20. The march begins at 11am and will go down Central Park West, across Central Park South and down 6th Avenue, ending at 43rd Street at around 4pm.

Meeting place for the IATSE cohort will be on Central Park West between 65th and 66th Streets, near the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Look for the IATSE signs!

Bring a sign (no wood or metal), do your vocal warmups (so they can hear us down in Washington!) and keep an eye on the weather reports to dress accordingly. Comfortable shoes are a must.

If you can’t attend the march in New York, check with your local labor council – either city or state – to find out where people are marching in your area.

Let’s keep the pressure on and continue to make noise about issues that affect working men and women across this country.

I hope to see you on Saturday!

In solidarity,

Nick

We suggest that you support this powerful movement—even if you cannot make it to the march, there are many ways to support it. For you, for your daughters, for your mothers, for your sisters, for your great-great-granddaughters.

To join the march (which starts right outside our door step!), donate to the cause or learn more click here: https://womensmarchalliance.org/2018-womens-march-on-nyc/

Best regards,
Philip & Marilyn

Running The World!

Dear Friends,
Today I thought we’d deviate slightly to the edge of theatre and discuss something even more exciting: women!
The other day, I saw a woman delivering groceries.  This in and of itself doesn’t seem that far out of the ordinary in this day and age, but–and this might sound crazy–I have never seen a woman deliver groceries!  Men delivered groceries…men delivered everything.  In fact, when we look way, way back men even played the part of women on stage.
A few weeks ago, we read that the Buffalo Bills hired Kathryn Smith as the first full-time female assistant coach in the NFL! 
But whom we wanted to speak about most of all is Angela Merkel!  She is quite commanding in her ability to not only lead Germany, but is widely accepted as the de facto leader of Europe and was named by Time Magazine as Person of the Year for 2015!
Yes, women still have a long way to go to catch up to men in these male-dominated arenas, but we are happy to see that women are staking their claim and with role models, such as Merkel and Smith, leading the charge it won’t be long before their dominance (?) can be seen everywhere!
