December 16, 1773

The Boston Tea Party

On the eve of the 244th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, I find myself angry at Congress who treats our inequality with partisan indifference, local government that talks-the-talk, but won't walk-the-walk, the media who act as if our 2nd-class citizenship is merely a political curiosity and all those who accept the violation of our civil rights without a proper fight. It's time to get angry. It's time to get active. It's time to stand up and be counted. I'm tired of being all show and no-go. Join me today by using the hashtag #Tea4DC. Let's join forces, speak out and tell the world to end this injustice once and for all!
