Our Democracy is in Peril because of inaction – non participation!
The ideology of those making decisions on our behalf, creating laws, writing policies, shaping systems have a significant and at times devastating impact on underserved communities. This is why we must all remain resilient in our efforts to bring about change.
The instrumental changes to our democracy throughout history manifested when ordinary people stood up to power. As the marchers of 50 years ago understood, it will take a people’s movement to beat back state laws that disenfranchise the most vulnerable of America. Congress and the courts heard the people’s voices then; it is up to this generation to make sure the voices of the people are heard again.
