After an expensive stop to fix the car's AC 🥵 on the way, I finally arrived in Arizona!
I'm happy to say the Walking to Fix Our Democracy RV survived the summer's scorching temperatures, and I'm headed toward Santa Fe, NM for a September 1 rally outside the capital, known as the Round House.
I'll be arriving in Santa Fe,
NM Friday morning, September 1 and will walk to the east side of the Round House for a rally at 12:10 p.m. hosted by Indivisible Santa Fe, Breaking Big Money’s Grip on America, and Represent.Us NM. The nonpartisan event is free and all are welcome.
My thanks to Bruce Berlin, John House and their activists for putting the event together! Even if you don't live locally, please share this email with your friends in New Mexico, and send them to https://www.fixourdemocracy.us/santa-fe-nm to RSVP.
Just before I left Vermont, I finished #4 in my Reasons to Fix Democracy podcast series. This time something near and dear to my heart having just gone through it with Sally: To fix our democracy to ensure that those who represent us establish and support a health care system that provides high quality healthcare to all 330+ million of us at the lowest, system-wide total cost, and is financially and socially sustainable into the future. I've got links to some great resources on this topic, and I hope you'll take a few minutes to listen.
To my friends in Colorado, please be thinking about walks, rallies or speaking events you'd like to plan with me in the coming weeks. Check out my walking route to see where I'm headed, and contact me so we can work out the details.
Last thing for today: My need to leave the road last year to attend to Sally meant that some of the volunteers who were lined up to help drive the RV and help with organizing weren't able to this year. If you can spare a day or week helping Democracy out for a week, let me know!
Until we talk again,
P.S. - Now that we're back on the road, can you chip in to help keep us there? Thank you!
