Hillary Rettig and One Pissed Of Liberal (aka OPOL) combine forces for a tribute to progressive activists to whom we owe so very much. They also invite us to become active in the causes of freedom, justice, and peace. Hmm, for those of the Christian flavor that might translate as furthering the reign of God, or cooperating with the Holy Spirit in the redemption and sanctification of the world, or something like that. For others it might be "tikkun" or "right action." Anyway, it sounds like a really good idea.
This Thanksgiving, let’s all give thanks for the progressive activists who have fought against often incredible odds to give us a better world, and continue to do so. Then, go out and do some progressive activism and BE PROUD OF IT. Fly your activist flag proudly, and encourage others to do the same. Remember that progressive activists are, quite simply, the most precious resource in the world, and that if we all just do a bit more activism, and encourage others to do the same, we can create an enormous amount of social progress.
So, if you have a few minutes, check out "Giving Thanks for Progressive Activists"--lots of inspiring pictures and links to take action as well.
