It is more important than ever for Democrats to come together and mobilize for the necessary work ahead. We intend to facilitate concrete action to challenge the new administration and our Republican members of Congress. Now is the time to get involved, and as Georgia’s Congressman and civil rights leader Representative John Lewis would say, “make some noise.”
