New York Senator Chuck Schumer penned an article for The Advocate offering words of consolation and motivation following the results of last week’s election. In the article, Schumer recognizes that he is not sure what the future holds, but he will do whatever he can do prevent backsliding on hard-won rights and to push back against national discourse that allows for anything less than full respect for Americans:
"Keep fighting; keep working; keep pushing for all LGBT Americans, all Muslim Americans, all Americans with disabilities, all Latino Americans, all African-Americans, all white-black-brown working-class Americans struggling to have a fair shot at the American dream.

"Our country does change for the better, but not on its own. We worked hard for that progress, and we will expend every ounce of our ingenuity and effort to defend it."Read HERE.
