March 2017 “Protect America's Best Values from Attack”
Decent people are alarmed the federal government is trying to impose ignorant, reckless, cruel, and corrupt decisions and policies upon us.
However, public opinion polls show that most Americans actually support progressive reforms, such as making rich people and big corporations pay their fair share of taxes, stopping big money from corrupting election campaigns, raising the minimum wage, protecting women’s rights, supporting equal rights for LGBTQ people to marry, protecting the environment and climate, and so forth.
The federal government’s new decisions violate the American people’s best traditional values! Our 1776 Declaration of Independence affirms that all people are created equal. The Statue of Liberty’s inscription explicitly welcomes immigrants and refugees. Our best values still affirm that treating every-body fairly is what our nation must stand for. The American people support meaningful democracy and honest government that serves the broad public interest. We support a clean environment. The list goes on and on.
When a corrupt, repressive government tries to violate these deeply held American values, the American people can nonviolently resist. The enormous marches on the inauguration weekend (January 20-22) showed how huge is the opposition to a government that would violate our deeply held values.
To resist the onslaught of corrupt, repressive government, let’s help the American people remember, celebrate, and protect our nation’s best values – and organize nonviolently until we win. Let’s empower and help ordinary people put their best values into practice in many ways small and large. Each person and each group of people can figure out how to do this.
The Olympia FOR’s March 2017 TV program (“Protect America’s Best Values from Attack”) features three savvy, compassionate guests – Karen Johnson, Mustafa Mohamedali, and Tyra Lindquist – who provide a smart analysis of our current situation and encourage people to act upon our nation’s best values. Despite our nation’s frightening crisis, our three guests express positive “can-do” attitudes that ordinary grassroots people really can turn things around!
To implement our March program’s intention and vision, please also watch the Olympia FOR’s January 2017 TV program (“Nonviolent Grassroots Remedies for Our Current Crisis”) and/or read the thorough summary at the .pdf link next to the link for watching the January program (at the “TV Programs” part of www.olympiafor.org. January’s program affirms the power and effectiveness of organizing non-violent movements from the grassroots up, so we can resist oppression and accomplish our positive goals for human rights, social and economic justice, environmental sustainability, and so forth. March’s program will inspire you and will help you frame your organizing efforts to effectively reach out to the general public and bring them into our progressive movements.
