Civil rights are being trampled on by a new rash of authoritarianism in ways that are destroying all the gains over the last 60 years or so. Women’s rights, protest rights, assembly, etc. What’s more disturbing are the rights of the people most prone to hate and bigotry; LBGTQ and people of color or religion other than the Christian’s with their built in privilege. We aren’t being represented in Congress. Time to rise up and scream for a return of our civil rights. Peace
