I support the Day of Blogging for Community Organizing Justice.
I'm a parent who volunteers in my children's schools, the adoption community, the Korean American community and through my employer. I condemn statements that demean and dismiss community organizing and those who volunteer to make their communities and this country better places to live.
It is astonishing that the party that coined the phrase "a thousand points of light" to describe those who give their time and talent in service to their communities and country would stoop to this new political low. As a mother, full-time worker, and committed and active volunteer, I add my voice to those who are equally appalled.
