More than ever we need to be smart, committed and creative. Let’s remember that this is not about Trump. It is about a political and economic system that puts profit over people, over every living thing, over the planet. Let’s also remember the Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaign demonstrated, there is an enormous appetite in this country for a totally different direction. We can do this. We need to build a strong movement with a foundation of love and unity.
We are holding organizing meetings all around the state in the coming weeks. Let me know if you want to attend or help organize one locally to be part of getting our communities organized. Over the coming days we are participating in community gatherings across Vermont and New Hampshire for people to come together.
