The fragility of our democracy and institutions – and the persistence of the racism that runs through them – have been laid bare. We must act for racial justice and women’s equality and recommit to lifting up the lives of all people.
Let’s make sure to protect the people’s power.
The people’s power is at the polls, and we took action to protect it and used it to vote Trump out in 2020.Together, we witnessed history as Kamala Harris was sworn into office as the nation’s first Black and South Asian woman Vice President and as Joe Biden took over the mantle of the presidency with the clear intent to restore dignity and truth to our country’s highest office and deliver on substantive plans to address the multiple crises we face. We have seen firsthand the weight that words of truth wield and the necessity of moral leadership in maintaining peace and protecting our institutions and people.
But even more than the power of words, we have witnessed and taken part in the power of the people. Our power. We will defend that power and remain laser-focused on educating, activating, and registering voters for the years to come and challenging and reversing his most harmful policies now.
