I’m certain the past week has been trying for all of you, I know it certainly has been for me. Despite this I hope that my letter finds you in better spirits and renewed vigor, because right now there is much work to do.
The coming Trump presidency represents an existential threat to our Republic. It is obvious that it will challenge aspects of our civil society that were long considered sacrosanct. The protection of democratic institutions and the continuation of a progressive agenda will require a robust and sustained grassroots response of us all. The conversation as to how we achieve this is already beginning and I would like to contribute to it. It is my hope that these points can help frame a larger conversation between all of us as we move to organize our local response in preparation for the next four years.
