For us to create a peaceful and just America I suggest using Dr. King’s six principles of non-violence that follow
Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people. It is active nonviolent resistance to evil. It is aggressive spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
Nonviolence seeks to win friendship and understanding. The end result of nonviolence is redemption and reconciliation. The purpose of nonviolence is the creation of the Beloved Community.

REPUBLICANS ARE DOING NOTHING
If we don’t have an absolutely revolutionary turn out in 2020 our species will be extinct in 100 years
I want to be clear- the enemies here are the Republicans in the Senate, Congress and the White House that would rather listen to those that fund their campaigns and foreign governments than science or facts.
NOT the majority of Republicans, like my father formally was, who are mainly not in office and agree asking a foreign government to help in an election is wrong and listening to money rather than science is wrong as well.
Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO) are ways that people that are a danger to themselves or someone else can be disarmed through due process.
They could have prevented Parkland and are currently preventing other shootings in the 17 states and DC where they have been created
They have some bipartisan support in Congress and the Senate with Republicans like @marcorubio and others that support it but we need to pass ERPO in every state with the federal government providing funding for the states that have passed ERPO.
There are more men in the US House named Jim than there are Republican congresswomen running for
That’s it, that’s the tweet.
The argument that it’s only based on merit is complete bullshit and is the same argument that’s been used for hundreds of years to oppress women with the same notion that the reason why there weren’t any in power was because none of them had the “merit” to be there.
We have a Congress that historically represents those with the most privilege, not the people they “represent”
The only way we can fix this and create an actually representative Congress/government is for new and diverse constituents to run for office
