There is a critical national debate taking place about the direction of our country. Some would have us revert to another time when the white majority ruled, women knew their place in the home, and gays stayed in the closet. Others in the progressive community see an increasingly multicultural nation where all are respected and accepted. At the same time, there are critical national issues such as income inequality, poverty, human rights, health care, environmental stewardship, and peacemaking that call for the engagement of progressive advocates.
