Remarks by Roger Longman, ICT4 Founder, during our November 21st General Membership meeting with Congressman Jim Himes:
"Lesson 15 from Timothy Snyder's book On Tyranny is Contribute to Good Causes.
To quote Snyder: “One element of freedom is the choice of associates, and one defense of freedom is the activity of groups to sustain their members.” The business of resisting Trump and enabling an alternative vision costs money – to rent halls for meetings, to print signs, to organize transportation. Maybe to support an intern so we can engage a more diverse group of people. Not a lot of money. But certainly more than I figured when a few of us set up this group last January. So make your pledge. Whatever you can afford. 10 bucks. 25 bucks. 50 bucks. We ain’t trying to out-Koch the Koch brothers. But believe me, this movement could use the scratch. The resistance needs fuel!"
