Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! It’s “opportunity time” with the start of a new year, new maps, new legislators, and new challenges.  I hope you took time to replenish your reserves as we continue our fights for Democracy and Truth. In today’s Tidbits, you will find important conversations Tuesday morning and evening, as well as a full day of important and constructive actions to Take Back January 6th! I’ll check in with the BADASS Briefings on Thursday.  If you have events and action items to reach our goals of Democracy and Truth, please forward!

Thank you.
Onward warriors,

On January 6, a faction of elected officials turned their backs on America by inciting armed right-wing militants to attack our Capitol and then tried to block an investigation to cover up their role in this violence. So this January 6, exactly one year later, Americans across race, place, party, and background all across the country are holding candlelight vigils to say: We are the UNITED States of America. We can never let this happen again. Join DemCast in getting this message out here, NOW!
