Whew…what a year!
2017 began with overwhelming feelings of trepidation and apprehension, but we took a stand with our silent statement of solidarity: ‘Hate Has No Home Here.’
We discovered our voice, though, on January 21st when we joined hundreds of thousands in the Women’s March on Washington. We returned exhilarated, energized and ready to battle the great American tragedy that is Donald Trump
Throughout the spring, we took on the challenge of gerrymandering and learned that our grass roots activism could pass municipal resolutions for fair, nonpartisan, independent redistricting reform.
We organized to protect our neighbors who were threatened with deportation. We held vigils, we sang, we joined hands, we prayed. We became one community
We fought the fight to save ObamaCare…and we won!
We recruited top notch candidates and challenged the Republican stranglehold on our county and municipal governments. We canvassed, we called, we donated, we delivered literature….and then we did it all again.
November 7th: HISTORIC VICTORIES ACROSS THE COUNTY! We shocked the world…and if truth be told, we shocked ourselves, too!
Our celebration was short lived and we were brought crashing back to earth when the Republican Congress passed the most regressive, immoral and mean-spirited tax bill in history.
But we are strong. We are one. We feel the wave building. We know that we can halt the Trump agenda if we take back the House and/or Senate. We can effectively terminate the Trump presidency next November. Yes, we can!
I have a feeling that 2018 is going to be a very good year. Are you ready to rumble?
Happy holidays, everyone!
