Here’s to a great 2015! | MoveOn.Org | Democracy In Action. – Happy New Year! Finally emerging from the long year that was 2014 feels wonderful! Things were still accomplished, though. In this video Robert Reich shows that even in the dark days of a year like 2014 progressives working together made strides. This should remind us be undaunted by setbacks and energize us to keep our heads up and make even more progress this year! Despite the “GOP” takeover of the U.S. Senate (and gain of governorships) 2015 can be a great year

Hispanic Heritage Month

We are now in the midst of Hispanic Heritage Month. This commemoration is unusual in that that it does not stretch from the beginning of a month to the end. It actually started on September 15 and ends on October 15.

Hispanic Heritage Month is very important. It celebrates a people who are a vital part of this country, who are members of one of the fastest growing groups in it, and about whom too little is taught or discussed.  Therefore we must take the opportunity to learn about these people and give them the recognition they deserve. This is a crucial step toward making ours a truly multiracial country where recognition that it belongs to everyone is universal.
