These are strange and difficult times. We are not winning every battle–but we are winning some! Now is the time to keep pressing forward, demanding that our elected officials listen to us and respond to our concerns.
Current events are concerning and it’s tempting to tune out. As Leah McElrath said “If you are feeling despair, you are not alone. But the reality is that resistance is more important than ever. . . . So go ahead cry and feel the despair and fear. Know that experiencing such emotions just means you have a good grasp on reality. But never forget that you are part of something much larger than yourself. . . . You are part of the resistance. And we need you.”
Luckily, the month of April is FULL of opportunities to protest and push back against the Trump agenda. And because there is a congressional recess this month, there will be opportunities to “bird-dog” Tiberi–show up wherever he is, ask him why he won’t hold a town hall, and let him know we are disappointed in his actions. If he won’t come to us to answer questions, we will bring the questions to him!
