Ms. Falk reported on the January 21 NYC Women's March:
... I attended the march with a group of about 150 people from Roosevelt Island....
...It was an amazing day, both for the camaraderie of everyone sharing and photographing their signs, guesstimating the size of the crowds, cheering when helicopters and drones appeared overhead to photograph the enormous size of the crowds and feeling that you were a part of something bigger than yourself.

Over drinks at Riverwalk, we decided to form a group for Social Action in connection with the Roosevelt Island Seniors Association, to keep our elected officials aware of our concerns and keep them motivated to fight the good fight. Schumer, Gillibrand and Maloney have a tough road ahead. They need to know that we support them and are keeping our eyes on them....
The group that was formed following the NYC Women's March is Indivisible Roosevelt Island.

Ms Falk adds:
Indivisible Roosevelt Island is an advocate for equality and justice. We serve as a clearinghouse for:
  • information about the current administration
  • how to contact our elected officials to express our concerns about proposed legislation, regulation and nomination that we believe are detrimental to American society and the US economy
  • meetings, rallies plus letter-writing and phone calling campaigns.
We had our first meeting on February 9.
