We are deeply frustrated with the outcome of the presidential election. Hillary Clinton’s tireless efforts to defend our civil rights, uplift women and children across the globe, and her commitment to create a kind and inclusive country continues to inspire us. Hillary is a true leader who has shown us that we cannot quit, even when we are knocked down.
What’s next? We will keep going, reaching for progress, and working for what is right. The baton has now been placed in our hands and we must run with it everyday. Remember as Hillary Clinton said, “our constitutional democracy demands our participation, not just every four years but all the time. So let’s do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear.”
Progress is working to defend the rights of people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ, women, people with disabilities, and all minorities.
Progress is becoming the world’s clean energy leader and aggressively combating climate change.
Progress is getting unaccountable money out of politics and making campaign finance reform a reality.
Progress is supporting our veterans and the men and women who serve this country in our military and defense.
Progress is making debt-free college a reality.
Progress is ensuring the health and safety of all Americans.
Together, we will continue to advance the progressive causes and values that we cherish. Our fight continues for ensuring that all Americans are treated equally and fairly. We must –and we will– unite against bigotry and hate.
