Paul Wellstone was my activist and political hero. I will never forget him. Sometimes when I say to myself why am I still fighting for the common good? I think.....what would Wellstone do? Stand up and fight. Love you Paul.
Wellstone gave our candidates a renewed sense of confidence; they believe they can win, and they have the tools to win. That wouldn’t have happened without Wellstone. Wellstone harnessed their potential.
Wellstone Action is out there making a real difference. And the principal way they make a real difference, they get up and fight for what they believe in. You know, you can't win if you don't fight, and Wellstone Action knows how to be effective because they know how to fight.
If you are committed to making non-violent change, then politics has to be at the very center of your organizing. That's just how it is. And if you want to win, you'll find no better partner than the trainers, thinkers and organizers at Wellstone Action. Personally, I find winning preferable to the alternative, and our long-term partnership with Wellstone has helped us build the independent political organization and power that we believe is essential to saving this country that we love.
