Today was my first time ever giving a speech at a political rally!
“I’d rather stand up and fight for what I believe in than stay home and accept what I don’t.”
Here I am trying to work up my nerve [@min. 2:55], and then going for it [from 3:45-6:45].
(Thanks to my friend Zareh and to Facebook Live for the footage.)
Here are some media coverages of the event:
Boston Globe: Mass. protesters join nationwide anti-Trump rallies
CBS Local News (video): Protests Held At Statehouse As Mass. Presidential Electors Meet To Cast Votes
My favorite signs:
Martin. Malcolm. Harriet. Rosa. Marcus. Shirley.
BECAUSE OF THEM WE CAN.
Frederick. Coretta. Bayard. Betty. Medgar. Mamie.
What a treat to see my friend Zareh today!
AND to start becoming acquainted with “the People’s Building,” our own State House.
More to come.
