What a phenomenal day on Cape Ann yesterday! Our first stop was the Rockport Democrats Candidate Forum, where I spoke with local activists about the important work we still have to do. On the 10th anniversary of marriage equality in Massachusetts, we still have 33 states in which the LGBT community cannot marry, and employers are still allowed to discriminate against employees based on gender identification and orientation. And on the 60th anniversary of school integration, educational opportunity in this country is still segregated by zip code. We have more work to do, and we need a Democrat in Congress who can actually get it done.
After the forum we headed down to Motif #1 Day in Rockport, where hundreds of people were enjoying the beautiful weather, fantastic food, and local shops. Every single person I spoke to was excited to see a new generation of leaders running for office, and shop owners all over Bearskin Neck and downtown Gloucester asked us to put signs in their windows. It was a beautiful day with fantastic people, and I can’t wait to go back.
