Valerie Novack: When a group of my friends want to go out, I have to ask if that restaurant has a ramp out front, or if the bathroom is on the same floor. Most people don't think about these types of things.

Harley Litzelman: Police abolitionists ask,"Why was this crime committed?" The places that have the least amt of crime are not the places w/ fewest number of police. The places w/ the least crime are places that have basic needs, even wants, met

Jeff Hauser: The GOP wants to get rid of the liabilities; they want employees to beg for jobs & have no recourse if going to that job makes them sick. It devalues the lives of working people.

Phil Glover: AFGE revamped its entire endorsement process after 2016. We sent a survey to members, and about 65% of our members wanted to endorse Biden, 23% wanted Trump, & the rest didn't feel we shouldn't be involved.

Devin Pandy: The first thing that went wrong in recent history was allowing a Secretary of State to oversee his own election race. That's where GA went wrong in recent history. We wouldn't be in his situation if Stacey Abrams were in office.

Bob Ney: John Lewis wasn't just a civil rights icon; he was an icon for everyone. I worked in Congress with him & he just wanted to accomplish things. He was persistent. He supported me during my tough times & gave me a hug when I saw him 4 yrs ago at the convention.
