We are regular people, just like you, for whom November 8, 2016 was a rude awakening. Many of us have been more couch-potato than activist, but now we realize that we no longer have the luxury of watching from the sidelines.

Donald Trump is the biggest popular vote loser in history to ever call himself President- Elect. In spite of the fact that he has no mandate, he will attempt to use his congressional majority to reshape America in his own racist, authoritarian, and corrupt image. If progressives are going to stop this, we must stand indivisibly opposed to Trump and the members of Congress (MoCs) who would do his bidding. Together, we have the power to resist — and we have the power to win.

We believe that protecting our values, our neighbors, and ourselves will require mounting a strong, united, indivisible resistance to the Trump agenda — a resistance that seeks to protect all our civil rights, built on the values of inclusion, tolerance, and fairness Trump is not popular. He does not have a mandate. He does not have large congressional majorities.

Here in Kentucky, we have a unique opportunity: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the power behind the obstruction of the last 8 years, is accountable to us.  Newspapers have indicated that he will be the most powerful politician in Washington, DC during the Trump administration. It is our obligation to make sure he remembers that he works for us.
