Today’s Action: Thankfulness for diverse voices in our representation

We have a LOT to be thankful for today.

Two weeks ago, we took back the House, the satisfying conclusion to months of grassroots Democratic sweat and tears (hopefully not much blood) paid off.

Of the 435 House seats, we celebrate a record 102 women (89 Democratic) in the next Congress. They include the first Muslim women, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. And the youngest-ever female member of Congress, 29-year-old activist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And two Native American women (more firsts in Congress), Deb Haaland and Sharice Davids…and Davids is the first openly LGBTQ person to represent Kansas in Congress.

Meanwhile across the hall, Kyrsten Sinema will be the first openly bisexual Senator, as well as Arizona’s first female Senator.

And, we saw incredible momentum that should not be dismissed for their losses. Stacey Abrams’ close call in the Georgia governor race, fighting bravely for the voices of historically suppressed Black voters, will not be forgotten by Democrats around the nation as we look to next steps in 2020. Nor Beto O’Rourke’s inspirational work, bringing tidings of a Texas that could vote blue in the not-so-distant future.

Keep all of this in mind as you consider today what you have to be thankful for: the elevation of strong, diverse voices that speak for all of us, with more to come on the horizon.

These are not token accomplishments. We have taken a major step forward in forging a government that truly reflects, represents, and speaks for all of us. That is no small feat. We have much to be thankful for this year, and if we keep working the last two years like we did the last two, in 2020, we’ll really have something to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving to us all.
