Sanders Institute Founding Fellow Danny Glover has revealed why he supports the organization dedicated to transforming democracy through research, education, outreach and advancement of bold, progressive ideas and values.
“The present state of our country and of our world beckons to all of us,” wrote the actor in an email to supporters of the Sanders Institute. “As we confront climate change, multiple refugee crises, the threat of global conflict, and a disturbing normalization of fascism, our collective future mandates that we unite around calls for justice with a sense of urgency – justice for women, justice for Lgbtq communities, justice for immigrants, justice for racial and ethnic minorities, justice for religious minorities, justice for the economically disenfranchised, justice for our environment. We are called to defend the self-evident truths upon which democracy is built – equality, freedom, and the ability to pursue personal fulfilment – from forces rooted in falsehood, manipulation, and demagoguery. »
