Robert Reich is one of my favorite public figures. I’ve written about him before here and here. This year end review of 2014 is a good reminder of the progress that was made this year when people worked together and spoke out for civil rights, immigration reform and same-sex marriage.
He also reminds us that when we despair and say things can’t change or don’t vote, we are giving our power to the wealthy and the power brokers who are more than willing to use our indifference to get more.
I’m making a personal commitment to do more in 2015 to make my voice heard – for people, for animals and for the planet.
Here is Reich’s 2014 recap and call to action. Enjoy.
