Sheila's Founding Fundraising Drive
As I grow older and the time to significantly address climate change is shortening by the day; as I see the human costs of economic inequality everywhere, I feel strongly that we must redouble our efforts to work together to address the most significant threats to our future! The time is now!
I joined the board of Rights and Democracy because I am drawn to RAD’s mission to further solidify the relationship between the labor and climate change movements. I believe that one step is to support our state's progressive and enlightened policy makers in their work and to encourage citizens to come forward and organize or run for office. The momentum created by the Bernie Sanders’ campaign demonstrates that people everywhere seek a return to the kind of democratic values that he represents.
RAD is already out there organizing against racism and on behalf of welcoming refugees to our states. We are canvasing on behalf of the paid sick days campaign. We had our first Rights and Democracy Summit on December 5th, where hundreds of community members, activists, legislators, and candidates for top office posts came out to discuss inequality, the state budget and bringing Bernie’s message home.
Join me in funding the dedicated staff of activists and organizers of Rights and Democracy. Thank you!
