No greater modern threat exists to modern American democracy than the administration of Donald Trump. Daily chips and cracks are evident in our democracy—suppression of the vote; appointments of lower court and Supreme Court judges with little to no regard to the law—evident the slow death of the laws that guide and undergird our republic. We aren’t laying down during this moment—progressive patriots are championing the ideals that present an America that is just and good and provides equitable opportunity for all. That fight is evident in the push for impeachment, the lawsuits against unfair elections and the movement to restore the vote to returning citizens.
