The Houston Democracy Project keeps it local, but it is worth noting crowds estimated into the hundreds of thousands who marched in many German cities in recent days against the rise of a far right-wing party that is discussing mass deportations.
Showing up is a big deal. It is often more than half the battle to recall the cliche. Knowing when to show up, showing up as often as needed, showing up when you are nervous or afraid to show up, showing up when others don't show up--It all matters a lot and takes brains to get right. It is something any person of good will who applies some thought to the matter can get right.
There is a lot of trouble ahead in 2024. Resolve to show up as needed. It is an important thing that we all can do in an effective and hopeful way.
The Houston Democracy Project works daily to inspire, organize and strengthen pro-democracy coalitions in Houston and Harris County. The Project will continue through 2024 at the least.
