"When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something."

"Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America."  John Lewis


We don't just talk our values. We walk them. We care about our community, work for change, and make our voices heard. Here are some ways LD25 members have dedicated themselves to impacting our community, living our values, and, getting (to quote John Lewis) in "good trouble." Join us!

An important reminder, if our Senator rejects ending the filibuster. It was a privilege to have 79-year-old Rev. Jesse Jackson among us and fighting the good fight for democracy!

Rev. Dr. William Barber II described the many ways the filibuster has impeded progress since it was first used in 1837.

 

Fix it or nix it!
