But let it be heard by those who have the power and can actually do something about it.
The Legislative branch of our government has the power to oppose the Executive branch, but only if they use it.
Force them to use it.
Then call these people.
- Don’t give them money – that allows them to continue doing things the same way they are now.
- Don’t sign up for their mailing list – that lets you lie to yourself that you’re doing something.
- Volunteer, be a part of the solution – ask them when the next meeting in your area is and be there for each meeting between now and the DNC election. Advocate for your choice of person for the DNC Chair and most importantly advocate for the fifty state strategy.

If not now, then when?
If not today, then why make your promises?
