Democracy in action

It’s exciting to see young people from both parties registering others to vote and supporting candidates.

The young people I volunteer with in results (results.org) to end hunger and poverty, are hardworking, asking good questions of candidates and not afraid to follow through. No wonder 43 senators and 106 members of the House sent a letter to the administration, asking for bold leadership in this month’s high-level meeting on tuberculosis at the United Nations. Constituents asked them to do this.

The power of democracy comes when citizens speak up and follow through.
