“Hold tight to comradeship. Hold tight to your ambitions: to do together something much bigger than you could do yourself….In this – the Scott Walker era of American politics – we are living in an era of minority rule. They are ruthless about exercising the power they have. We have a responsibility to lead, and to constantly create and recreate majorities. The 2016 election reminds us of that. This is hard, uphill work. And, we have to rekindle our big ambitions. We have to make it happen”
Booth, an activist, antiwar protestor, and lifelong labor organizer, died earlier this year.
