As the summer of our discontent veers toward the fall elections, it’s time to kick up our activism. Distractions abound. Beachcombing, picnics, lounging poolside, relaxing time with family and friends, all provide a necessary antidote to the toxicity that threatens to envelope us, but one thing is for sure – burying our heads in the sand will not make “IT” go away.
More, with the student volunteers soon heading back to school, there will be a void in the campaigns that needs to be filled. From the increasingly palpable impacts of climate change on the environment to the outright horror of toddlers and children separated from their parents and imprisoned to what can only be called “Traitorgate”, we must take a stand now.
CALL TO ACTION*
Wherever you live, now’s the time to organize your neighbors and community. Go on out and knock on doors, invite friends and neighbors over for a fundraiser or meet and greet, be it a coffee klatch or a cocktail party. We need to get together and WIN!
