Our democracy still needs us after the election

Great coverage on the elections in The Olympian.

But the election is only the beginning. After we elect people to represent us, we need to continue to talk to them about what matters. Our calls, letters, and meetings with those we put in Congress can make all the difference. Tired of hunger in the world’s richest country? Wish everyone had health care? Ready for an end to homelessness? Time to talk to those who can make the difference. This isn’t rocket science, it’s more about a fair shake for all Americans.

We know what to do, we just lack the political will to make it happen. Our voices can create this political will. Groups like RESULTS (results.org) can are ready to help you do this effectively. Now it is time to help create change for the benefit of all.
