The movement that Bernie inspired across the country we must continue to organize not only around issues, and not only in reaction to Trump's attacks. We must organize to build the necessary power to make our values reflected in our policies.

If we are serious about building power and affecting change we must have an electoral strategy, at all levels, building and training our members to run for office.

    Q: Why do you want to get involved in movement politics? What is at stake in your life & your community?
    A: Throughout my life I have seen our laws support greed and profits above health and human advancement. I can no longer sit aside while our country races into environmental, economic, and social disaster.

    I want to be involved in movement politics in order to change our system to support the bulk of people rather than the wealthy minority. I believe there is a large movement of people who want to create a system that enables compassionate and humanitarian governance, which supports economic and social equality. Now is the time to take this movement forward in an organized and effective manner.

    I am scared of the potential for us to leave our children a war-torn planet too polluted to sustain human life. Being a parent has opened my eyes to the urgency and importance of improving our world through civic engagement. As the health and safety of my children are at risk, so too is that of communities around the world.
