Many hoped the recent elections would signal a positive change in national direction but this did not happen. We now face more wars abroad and worsening social conditions as well as more attacks on freedom here at home.
We can give up and shut up OR continue to organize and mobilize for progress.
Come to a public assembly of veterans, military families and other concerned people to hear speakers, discuss the issues and stand up for what is right.
