What is solidarity ?
Unity of a group that produces or is based on community of interests, objectives, and standards.
What does it mean to be an ally?
An alliance is a relationship among people that have joined together for mutual benefit or to achieve some common purpose, whether or not explicit agreement has been worked out among them.
Philadelphia’s grassroots organizations; our non-profits, affinities, advocacy groups, progressive political parties have members and supporters from all corners of the spectrum. When you fill up a room full of fighters you will find that many, if not all, are outraged at the state of our nation and are fed up with the necessary changes not coming the to issues that matter most to them. We now stand in a threshold where behind us the struggles of the past have past from one generation to the next. What is ahead is uncertain; it might be the change that promised to come or a mess our next generation will not be able to hide or wash away.
The 2016 Democratic National Convention is an opportunity for all the champions, the fighters, the advocates, activists and every awakened human and their comrades to meet on the streets of Philadelphia, across the nation and everywhere in the world. As unique causes and isolate events we are in unison. Together, supporting each other to confront a common enemy, we are an unstoppable force.
