Teresa Tomlinson tells the crowd at the March On to 2020 rally in Atlanta, Georgia:
“It is because of you that Democrats flipped 14 seats in the Georgia State Legislature. It is because of you that we sent Lucy McBath to the U.S. House of Representatives. And, it is because of you that we flipped Congress.
But, we can’t stop now. We can’t stop until we have:
- stamped out voter suppression;
- established a financial infrastructure where people have access to affordable healthcare, livable wages and affordable childcare;
- convinced people that government is an important partner in our prosperity and that who runs government is critical to our success as a country; and
- delivered our country from the bigotry, racism and anti-Semitism that has plagued mankind for thousands of years.
Progressivism is not radicalism or socialism. Progressivism is Americanism. Progress is the natural condition of man, and that is why progressive policy reasonates with people and answers the call for solutions. Our battles for justice have been too hard fought to go back. We will not go even one step back to a darker, less enlightened past.”
