I don’t often think of our democracy in such terms. I generally consider that our democratic process is “broken” as I think of the greed, big money and partisanship, and then, feel my disappointment and anger.
For years my primary focus of activism has been the environment and global warming. My thinking had been that without a nurturing, habitable planet there would be no people and therefore education, gun control, health care, income equality or other issues would not exist.
I understood that a well functioning democratic process was critical for our future, but I did not see an effective means or movement to address this core issue.
My thinking is changing as I now see the possibility for change. There is an enormous movement arising in our country that is coming together to reclaim our democracy.
DEMOCRACY SPRING is demanding that our Congress take immediate action to end the corruption of big money in politics and ensure free & fair elections in which every American has an equal voice. The goal is to restore our democracy so that all the people are involved in making decisions.
