Action Alert - July 20th
"Do not get lost in a sea of despair....Be hopeful, be optimistic. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. We will find a way to make a way out of no way." - John Lewis
John Lewis Earned His Hope - Let's Hang Onto Ours
Today we're exactly six months into the Biden-Harris Administration and many of us expected to be happier than we are. After vanquishing Trump and regaining Congressional leadership, we had hopes for a saner, smarter, fairer nation to reappear faster than this.
But John Lewis and the Freedom Riders of 1960 faced more violent and entrenched opposition than we do today. And as we mark the first anniversary of his death, it's worth remembering that America has always been a work in progress, and the work never ends.
So take 5 minutes to call Senators Rubio & Scott and tell them Florida needs them to pass Biden's Infrastructure bill. Together we will find many ways to make our way out of no way.
