When Terri Mateer and Lynn Herring, both volunteers at the Women’s March on Woodstock, sat down a week later to write postcards to their congresspeople, they met with Penny Truex at the Kingston café Outdated. Within two hours, they had seven other customers working at their table and an email list of 17. Their group, called Upstate and Updated, is one of many small collectives that have sprung up in the Catskills and elsewhere to channel the enthusiasm generated by marches held around the world on January 21.
