Twenty-Six Days: I’m Thankful for My Constitutionally Protected Right to Protest.

Twenty-Six Days: I’m Thankful for My Constitutionally Protected Right to Protest.

On this day set aside for counting our blessings I’ll be brief, just three quick points:

1.       It’s been a scary couple of weeks for so many people and I’m thankful that the ACLU has got my back. Remember that you have a right to peacefully protest.

2.       I’m thankful my constitutionally protected free speech. And what’s more, I’m thankful for yours too. Why not use it to sign a petition asking the electors of the electoral college to vote for the winner of the popular vote?

3.       I’m aware that not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving. For many Native Americans, today is the National Day of Mourning and is a reminder of a genocide, the theft of native lands, and the ongoing assault on native cultures. If you’re not already paying attention to what’s happening at Standing Rock in North Dakota today would be a good day to catch up.  The nodaplsolidarity.org site is a good place to start and the Indigenous People of America Facebook page has frequent updates from the front lines.

Twenty-six days left until the electoral college votes. Take action today!
