Hi Kimberly! I'm a retired public school teacher from Illinois who is very concerned about the messages from the White House and the silence from many in Congress. I joined "Indivisible" a few months ago and find their daily and weekly lists of what to do very helpful. I've also been forwarding their lists to many friends who tell me they're grateful for the information.
I feel that the Democrats need a strong leader to rally behind. I'm not sure who will fill that role. Getting candidates elected is absolutely an important focus, however, we still need to communicate clearly with any candidate to make sure they understand what is important to us.
I don't have any suggestions for a mission statement, but a friend sent me this quote that I'm holding onto dearly as we move forward:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
