Today, in the scorching D.C. summer heat, activists marched over two miles from the “Take Back the Dream Conference” to rally outside of the offices of Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS and his super PAC American Crossroads. Crying out, “Karl Rove can’t buy my vote” and “Whose democracy? Our Democracy!” activists made their voices heard throughout the city, and protested not only Karl Rove and his nefarious networks, but an electoral system that disenfranchises the disenfranchised, and empowers the empowered.
People For’s Diallo Brooks spoke at the rally, and encouraged activists to continue fighting for a just society. “This is about preserving our democracy, that is why we are here!” he cried out to the audience, and not losing his sense of humor, concluded, “Stay cool in the heat, yall!”
