THE STORY:

Send Crystal to Democracy Spring

"The campaign will begin on April 2nd with a march from the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. where, if Congress has failed to meet our demand, thousands will gather to reclaim the US Capitol in a powerful, peaceful, and massive sit-in that no one can ignore." -DemocracySpring.org

 

I am asking for your support as I raise funds to participate in Democracy Spring. On April 2nd, 2016 thousands will march from Philadelphia to Washington D.C. demanding the end of corrupt elections.

When we arrive at our nation's capitol on April 11th a non-violent sit-in will begin. I will participate in the march but cannot risk arrest at the sit-in.

So why fund me? Because people of peace should take action and be represented. I am fully committed to nonviolence but cannot fund this endeavor alone. Also, I march to represent those who cannot attend. Funds raised will go towards my airfare and supplies for the march.

I will march from Philadelphia to Washington DC in peaceful support of fair elections. I will represent you, and also demonstrate that people from across the nation believe in the importance of restoring our equality as citizens. I don't ask for your support lightly.

Deciding to take this journey has been one of deep reflection. I find myself at a place where I feel it necessary to physically show up for peace and progressive change. Also, I very much want to be of service to the others marching through my own demonstration of peace and non-judgement.

Democracy Spring is happening at a historically fascinating time. We are in the midst of a presidential campaign that voters find deeply unsettling. We also have a president who has been frustrated by the broken Congress. The time is now.

At the march, I will carry with me the names of those who give to my campaign. If you give anonymously, your name will be recorded as anonymous.

In solidarity,

Rev. Crystal Burgoyne
