Daily Activism

I know we all live very busy lives. Work. Kids. Household chores. Hobbies. And it’s easy to think that you can leave activism up to others: some else will do it, not me. But believe me, you cannot sit this one out. If you don’t take action the Radical Right will destroy this great country and all that it stands for—equality, tolerance, and freedom. We cannot gamble away our proud nation. Your children’s future rests on your shoulders. I want my country back!
