This year has been a tumultuous and painful one for so many progressive activists. That’s one reason it’s important to cultivate and recognize gratitude for the good things in our lives. In the November 21 Thanksgiving mini-episode of “The Progressive Happy Hour,” cohosts Cici Battle and Drew Courtney reflect on what they are thankful for, both for the country and for themselves.
Cici shared, “I’m extremely grateful for the unwavering resistance and resilience of young people. I’ve watched them defy odds of participation, engagement and illuminating their voices … For me, this is a testament to how far our country can go.” Drew added, “I’m grateful for everyone who hasn’t given up on this country – especially women and people of color… who keep getting up and getting back in the fight [to] focus on the things we can achieve together. I’m really grateful that there are still so many people in the fight with us.”
