What we're about

2016 brought with it a national emergency: the election of a would-be fascist U.S. president who openly speaks against and works against democracy and the rule of law.

And unfortunately, his election has sucked the oxygen out of what would have been the national discussion if we had elected a Democrat in 2016: With all the progress we as a nation have made to date, what common sense steps can we now as a society take to insure that the blessings of liberty, better education, justice and equality, opportunities for self-advancement, and economic and physical well-being, be made available for all?

But sadly, the urgent concerns that we SHOULD be addressing have now been PUT ON HOLD as we must confront a clownish, amoral child-man with an affinity for foreign dictators and their authoritarian ways, as well as -- hideously -- an affinity for home-grown white nationalists.

That is, while he's not making fun of the disabled by mimicking their movements.

That is, while he is not corroding the fabric of society, degrading our national discourse, and corrupting a generation of children, by normalizing his monstrous behavior.

We all know this: History -- momentous history -- is being written at this moment. Despite the depths to which this country has descended, we are optimistic about the outcome. And we believe a much better future is coming quickly.

But it is an "all hands on deck" moment. And we invite you to join us on deck.

Joe Biden

Joe Biden will work to restore dignity, justice, hope, and opportunity to our now-struggling nation. And beyond that, Joe will work to advance these ideals throughout the world.

Joe will stop the insanity of climate-change-denial-as-government-policy, have our nation rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, and be a global leader to protect our planet's ecology. (Astonishingly, the Republican Party of the United States is the only major political party -- worldwide -- that continues to deny climate change.)

Joe will restore empathy to government. He will work to end systemic racism in the administration of justice and in all facets of life. And rather than corrupt our national justice system to use it punish his enemies and help his criminal friends, Joe Biden will insure that the U.S. Justice Department impartially follows the rule of law.

And what we desperately need right now -- we will have wise national leadership informed by the best science to dramatically expand testing, battle COVID, and bend the curve dramatically downward. Our best scientific experts will determine COVID policy, rather than the bumbling musings of an ignorant, inept, and profoundly selfish child-man.

Kamala Harris

The first Black and Indian American woman to represent California in the United States Senate, Kamala Harris grew up believing in the promise of America and fighting to make sure that promise is fulfilled for all Americans. Kamala’s father immigrated to the U.S. from Jamaica to study economics and her mother immigrated from India. Kamala’s mother told her growing up “Don’t sit around and complain about things, do something,” which is what drives Kamala every single day.

In 2010, Kamala became the first Black woman to be elected California Attorney General, overseeing the country’s second largest Justice Department, only behind the U.S. Department of Justice. In this capacity, she managed a $735 million budget and oversaw more than 4,800 attorneys and other employees. As California Attorney General, Kamala fought for families and won a $20 billion settlement for California homeowners against big banks that were unfairly foreclosing on homes.

Kamala worked to protect Obamacare, helped win marriage equality for all, defended California’s landmark climate change law and won a $1.1 billion settlement against a for-profit education company that scammed students and veterans. Kamala also fought for California communities and prosecuted transnational gangs who drove human trafficking, gun smuggling and drug rings.

Since being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2016, Kamala has introduced and co-sponsored legislation to help the middle class, increase the minimum wage to $15, reform cash bail, and defend the legal rights of refugees and immigrants.

Why A Group Specifically For Vegetarians and Vegans?

For many reasons. Because we ARE vegetarians and vegans. Because we enjoy the company of vegetarians and vegans, whatever we do. Because we appreciate the conscious moral stance that veg people take, and while we are engaged in our thoughtful political activism, we enjoy being surrounded by people who are thoughtful not just about politics.

At This Turning Point In History

Come join us at this historic moment, and help us return sanity, decency, normalcy, morality, a respect for democratic norms and democracy itself, as well as compassion, and justice, to our country, and to the world.
