Message from Portside: There's a Storm Ahead

We'd like to say that everyone can breathe easier after the midterm elections, which delivered an emphatic judgment on Trump and Trumpism. Congratulations to everyone who contributed to this achievement in any way.

Our special thanks if you responded to our fund appeal. The response is running ahead of last year, but we need many more contributions to meet our goal of $40,000. There's still time, so please consider helping out. 

But after we take a well-deserved breath, here's the difficult truth about what we -- the Really Inclusive We -- are facing. The forces that lost the election are attacking elections. They're not giving up and they'll stop at nothing. We're confronting an epic storm that threatens the foundations of democracy. We're facing an aggressive, vindictive, hateful plutocracy of unprecedented power. 

There's a storm ahead and there's no way to go around it. We have to navigate through it. We pledge to be in this journey with you, come hell or high water. That's our whole reason for being. Please help.

Mark Allen, Judy Atkins, Peter N.
