This is the text of opening remarks delivered Sunday, April 23, 2017, at the People’s Action founding convention in Washington, DC – “Rise Up: From Protest to Power.”
David pulled a stone from his bag and slung it.
And hit Goliath on the head.
And he fell to the ground.
We are gathered here tonight, founding a new organization: People’s Action.
And we are in a David and Goliath battle.
