Keep bending that arc

In 2018, hard work and determination helped our resistance take a major step forward. We organized, persevered, and made historic gains.

We were and remain some of the progressive fighters trying to bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice.

Because, as we all know all too well, change can't wait; we can't sit idly by in trying times and hope things get better.

As Donald Trump enters his third year as president, we can't let up for one moment.

His administration purposefully created a family separation and child imprisonment crisis on our southern border, with an eye on causing as much pain as possible.

His administration shut down the government because he refuses to compromise on his racist, wasteful border wall.

His administration denies climate change and is trying to turn over our country's natural legacy to big polluters.

His administration is still under investigation for collusion with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

Let's start 2019 and remember everyone who came before us on the road to a better, more just society. Let's recommit to working together to stop Trump in his tracks and fix what's broken in our country.

It won't be easy, but a powerful grassroots resistance can make it happen. That's us.

Keep bending that arc.
