Choose Democracy

Published: Aug. 29, 2020


Dear Friends:

Please circulate this message from George Lakey:

"Democracy is fragile. We have reason to worry that this fall we may see an undemocratic power grab — a coup. We also know that the people can defend our democracy. Mass protests have stopped coups in other places, and we may have to do the same in this country.

"That’s why we are committing now to choose democracy: by voting, making sure all the votes are counted, and preparing to take the streets in the case of a coup.

"Together, we choose democracy."
