Houston welcomes the "Sisters of 77" commemorating the 1977 National Women's Conference. We know you aren't simply interested in examining or discussing the past, you're highly motivated to take action now to make the future better. In collaboration with the University of Houston School of Public History, the Houston Women's March is coordinating two ways you can be of service this weekend in key areas:
- Health care and health insurance

HISD Woman Candidate Blockwalk
Would you like to help “get out the vote” for a female candidate in the nonpartisan HISD election? Join us for a block walk for Anne Sung of District 7. We will meet by 9:30 a.m. at HCPD headquarters (1445 N Loop W.Suite 110) and will be given instructions and a specific area to cover. Experienced people will be partnered with first-timers. We will block walk neighborhoods in District VII.
Phone Bank for Health Care Coverage
Do you have a cell phone? Want to help spread the word that open enrollment has started for health insurance? The Trump Administration has cut 90% of the outreach and advertising budget, and shortened the enrollment window to sign up for individual health insurance via Healthcare.gov. You will be given training, a script, and phone numbers to call of people to be contacted. This is similar to “get out the vote” calling and simply takes a cell phone and enthusiasm.
If you're traveling from out of town, we hope you can arrive in Houston by Friday, Nov 3, and join us for a weekend of community events, including this opportunity Saturday morning, November 4, to help those Houstonians who could use a few hours with you.
If you live here in Houston, please join us! This is a great opportunity to help fellow Houstonians while also getting to know women from across the nation. Simply RSVP, and then please let us know if you can volunteer transportation for out of town guests.
After you RSVP, we'll stay in touch to connect you with the volunteer opportunity best suited for your needs and interests.
Thank you for lending a helping hand (or ear, or word). You are greatly appreciated.
