My name is Christine. I'm a United States citizen, a taxpayer, a parent, a woman, a Christian, a health care consumer, and a small business owner.
I enjoy breathing clean air and drinking clean water. I expect our elected leaders to act like grown ups. I love my country. I want a positive future for my daughter and all young people.
Oh, and I like cats, red wine, and Ethiopian food.
After the presidential election, I was exhausted from waking up in the middle of night worrying about what was going on in our country. I needed to do something. So I decided to make a trip to The White House once a month to make my voice heard. Not only did I want to feel better about what I was doing, I figured it would be a great opportunity for others to make their voices heard as well.
This is not sponsored by an organization, nor am I being paid to make this journey. I'm a mom with a sign and a really amazing family who supports my activism 100%. (Photo Credit: Tony Kazmierski)
REMAINING DATES for 2018
September date has been cancelled due to personal reasons. But I'm closing out the year strong: October 24, November 15, December 18
As of December 2018 I will have spent a day in front of the White House a total of 19 times since my first date on May 11, 2017. See the blog posts below for reflections on my visits, and follow on Facebook to check out videos. I look forward to continuing to exercise our First Amendment right to peaceably assemble, so come join me. Come out for a few minutes, for lunch hour or the whole day - whatever works for you!
