Bumper Sticker

While doing some cleaning last week I came across the bumper sticker from my 1997 campaign for the Cincinnati Board of Education.

Though I did not prevail upon the people of Cincinnati to elect me to the school board, I’m glad to report that I was endorsed by the local AFL-CIO, UAW, SEIU, and Stonewall Cincinnati.

I did once win a race for precinct executive in Cincinnati. I think it helped me that I was the only person on the ballot for that high office in my precinct.

Every person has the ability to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, engage in civil disobedience, volunteer for candidates and causes, and even to run for public office.

The work of freedom is up to each of us.
