re: good trouble

We have 15 days to make history. The Democratic Party
Diane --

My first nonviolent sit-in was in 1960, to desegregate lunch counters in Nashville. We were spat on, beaten, called names that no person should ever have to hear, and eventually thrown in jail.

I never imagined that, more than 50 years later, I would hear some of the same kind of hatred and vulgarity from a candidate for President of the United States or the same kind of violence at his campaign rallies.

Diane, it's not enough just to say that the rhetoric we've heard during this campaign is unacceptable. We have to do something about it. We have to get into "good trouble" -- we have to get in the way, and make a little noise to show the world what we believe in.

And we have to use our most precious, most sacred right. We have to use the right that we marched for, and were beaten for, and some of us died for -- the right to vote -- to show that what our opponent says, what he represents, is not who we are.

I'm doing everything I can to get out the vote in this election, so we can go make some "good trouble" when we go to the polls and make our voices heard. I need folks like you to join me, Diane. If you're able to, pitch in $3 or more to help Democrats turn out every vote.
