We’ve Got Hella Power!

 

Take back our democracy, now!

 

“Were I to ignore the evidence that has been presented and disregard what I believe my oath and the Constitution demands of me for the sake of a partisan end, it would, I fear, expose my character to history’s rebuke and the censure of my own conscience.” – Mitt Romney

I’m in France consuming news from home. Wow! To me the events of the last 24 hours feel like The Empire Strikes Back. It feels like evil is kicking our butts, defying the dream of democracy. Today, the “morning after” Trump’s surreal “acquittal,” more devastating news has hit. The DHS announced their new attack on New York as a sanctuary city. An ICE agent shot two unarmed brothers while executing a deportation order in Brooklyn. To quote Marvin Gaye, “Makes me wanna holler…”

YET now is the time to be brave and bold. To access the force within us; to stand up and do the right thing. We each have power. I love what Mitt Romney did; he broke from party lines and was the only Republican to vote to convict Trump of abuse of power.

You and I also have the power to fix this hot-mess, to perfect our union; we can use our votes to rebirth our democracy. We must vote truth, justice, and revolutionary love. All who fall down on the job; all who fail the vulnerable and Mother Earth; all who would withhold liberty and justice while trafficking in lies–they must be fired in November. Our humanity is at stake, we must all do our part.

How? Let’s get informed. Stay engaged. Vote for the Common Good. Perfect Our Union. This is our moment! Come and gather with hundreds of revolutionaries April 24-26, 2020 in DC and find weekly inspiration and actions to take beginning right now.

And join us at Middle on February 16th, for the Vote Common Good national bus tour stop here in NYC! In the morning, Doug Pagitt and I will preach about the grave crisis facing our nation. Then, at 5:30 p.m., we will host an inspirational rally of music and motivation, to help fuel us for the fight ahead. It’s time to organize, and demand the moral government we need and deserve!

In love and justice,
Jacqui
