We absolutely are here and we absolutely know the issues! We aren’t going to take a nap, we’re going to fight our asses off. We aren’t members of the Democratic Party because we like kissing Democratic ass or think the status quo is just hunky-dory.

We are here because we think things are profoundly screwed up in our nation.

We think people are dying because they can’t afford health care.

We think our children and grandchildren are going to suffer terribly when the climate collapses.

We think workers are getting paid less and less while they work harder and harder and can barely get by.

We think cops abetted by police unions are literally murdering Black people in cold blood at disgusting rates.

We think women are still treated unequally and as second class citizens.

We think conservative religious people are mandating their absurd beliefs on the general population, especially when it comes to hurting LGBTQ people.

We’re scared as hell and angry as hell, and if the establishment wing of Democratic party thinks we’re going to be quiet, they’re in for the shock of their lives.

We’re just getting ready to rumble. Watch us rock!
