But I’ll still consider it a failure if ppl go home & think they’ve done enough just by showing up tonight. /1
And that ppl left with tangible plans for how to do so.
I have some suggestions. /2
1) Find local immigration rights orgs near u. Follow them on social media, join their email list, donate $. I guarantee they need $ & know how to use it well. /3
3) Engage in nonviolent civil disobedience at detention camps (they’re in ur state). Have white privilege? Citizenship privilege? Class privilege? Get over ur fear, grab friends, shut shit down. /4
We need to keep the House, take the Senate AND the presidency. 2 outta 3 ain’t good enough. And it’s DOABLE. Get involved. Start at swingleft.org /7
I’m hugely excited tonight bc I think ppl get it. Tonight was abt empowerment, motivation, ppl power, community support. /8
We won’t. We’re at a crisis point, and we’re going to fight until we win. /end
