"Real change never takes place from the top down, or in the living rooms of wealthy campaign contributors. It always occurs from the bottom on up – when tens of millions of people say 'enough is enough' and become engaged in the fight for justice."

"We must continue our grassroots efforts to create the America that we know we can become... We need to start engaging at the local and state level in an unprecedented way."

~ Senator Bernie Sanders

I am proud to support these candidates, our neighbors, who have stepped up to run for office. These are good people with professional experience, a commitment to service, and a goal of making government work for all of us. They stepped up for us and we must now step up to help them.
