These past few weeks have been a roller coaster of excitement! Ups and downs, twists and turns, and never a dull moment. We have met with many key individuals who reside throughout District 5, and making the necessary connections to make this campaign truly successful.
Each step along the way has brought new insight and considerations, including the notion that things may not be feasible. However, we will not let such things dissuade our choice to stay in this fight. Moreover, labeling this a fight is quite accurate, as it seems every single day, more and more is being done by corporatists and elites to throw additional burdens on the working class, while raking in more profits for themselves.
One of the most important challenges we face as a nation is ensuring that opportunity for success and a quality life is available to everyone, regardless of an individuals background. By enacting progressive policies and pushing for legislation, like Medicare For All and Free College Tuition, will enable those who are starting miles behind others to have a fighting chance to live the American Dream. One of the biggest hurdles for thousands of Americans to overcome is income inequality, which burdens a family for generations, as some of the most basic essentials for improving one's life remains out of reach.
We know that, if given the opportunity, many Americans are willing to put in the work necessary to improve their standard of living. We also know that we have to make it a feasible task, as opposed to only allowing the already rich access to basic human rights.
If you would like to join us for conversation and discussion over these issues, please swing by one of our events, called Push For Progress. The next event will be at Grounds For Thought in Bowling Green, Ohio, August 21st, 6pm-8pm We look forward to seeing you there!
