The meeting last night to introduce CF Grassroots Progressive Resource Center and livestream Bernie Sanders was a big success. On such short notice, it was gratifying to see how many took time out of their busy lives to attend. It shows a real pent-up feeling and need for us to organize in order to combat the negative and dangerous agenda coming from Washington. As Bernie said in his excellent address, despair is not an option now. We need to shake it off and work with other groups in an efficient and powerful manner to fight the extremist agenda being enacted rapidly in Washington by Congress and the President.
During the excitement last night, we failed to mention our appreciation of stalwart supporters of the progressive agenda attending the event, Linda Chapin, Wes Hodge, head of the Orange County Democrats, Susannah and Scott Randolph, Mary-Slatter Linn from the Sierra Club, Robert Moore, professor emeritus of anthropology at Rollins, and probably more that haven’t been mentioned here. Thank you all for your support. We also want to thank all the many volunteers who made this event such a success. Without you, it wouldn’t have happened.
