Action Together Suncoast is a grassroots political action organization. We watched as the rhetoric of the past election cycle threatened the very fabric of our nation. and now stand together in solidarity to protect the rights that have already been won and to fight for human rights and civil rights in the Suncoast area of Florida and beyond.
Clearly, a silver lining to this nightmare is that marginalized people who have needed more support all along are now getting it.
If I may,
I'd like to thank Dianne and every person involved with ATS that I've had the privilege to meet.
Because of you I'm experiencing a rebirth of my spirit and my voice.
If you ordered a March for Democracy t-shirt and paid to have it mailed to you, it should arrive by January 17th. If you had it shipped with the bulk order, it will be ready for you to pick up at the march - we will be set up by 10:30 by the statue. If you didn't order a shirt, there will be extras - first come, first served.
"Thank you for looking me in the eye and talking to me." The words of Eric a homeless man who had fallen off his bike and I pulled over to help early this evening. We chatted for about 30 minutes and at the end he said, " People forget we are human, they think we just want handouts. Sometimes we just need to be seen, thank.you." He continued; "We are all connected, trees, stars, plants, air, and people." My eyes met his and filled with tears...a moment that will be seared in my memory and heart forever.
