Our First Amendment rights are in jeopardy. Yes Donald Trump has attacked most of our American rights but one of the most important is our right to free speech and freedom of the press. Without freedom to criticize our government, how can we protect ourselves? He has already vowed to continue his attack on the press. We have to stop this frightening development.
The purpose of this group is peaceful discourse and intelligent activism. Yes we need to heal from the shock of Trump's election. But we have to act immediately to protect our rights, protect our children, and protect our vulnerable citizens.
I started this group because I had to do something, but I know very little about political activism. What I do know is that I am motivated and so are others. In this crisis is an opportunity. Maybe it had to happen to awaken us to create a new way to bring our people together.
There are other existing Democratic organizations that are taking serious, concerted action to stop Trump. We can certainly join them. But it is also amazing what small groups meeting locally can do. Let's meet to discuss what we can do as a small group of terrified but determined Americans.
