Friday Night Kickoff
- We are not just consumers, we are citizens in a democracy. One person one vote, not $1 one vote.
- Francis Moore Lappe: When our founders said “all men are created equal, and they are endowed with certain unalienable rights” what equality were they talking about? For me it’s equality of dignity. We are all worthy, knowing I have a voice and am not powerless. My life has some meaning beyond survival. I’m connected with others. Power, meaning, connection are the essence of democracy, they define our movement.
- Debra Winger: The only way to bring about what we need in this country is to have a 28th Amendment
- Steve Lipscomb (Fix It America): We need to work together to create a Constitutional Amendment that is workable.
