More than 50 years ago, I left to march in Selma knowing that I could come back home with scars -- or not at all. When I was hit in the head with a nightstick by a state trooper at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge, I thought I was going to die.
But I went because I knew that it was the right and important thing to do. That silence in the face of injustice is another form of injustice.
This is something that Hillary Clinton has understood her entire life. It's what drove her to go to South Carolina and fight against the harmful practice of sending minors to adult prisons. It's why she went to Beijing and declared that "women's rights are human rights" in the face of great opposition.
It's why I'm proud to call her my friend, and why I was so honored to stand on stage at the Democratic National Convention and nominate her as our next president. She's taken up the mantle so many times over that I've lost count, and she'll continue that fight from the White House.
But progress is not a solo activity. It's a team sport, and we're counting on you right now. Chip in $3 or more, and let's kick off the sprint from the nomination to Election Day a little early.
