Week in Review 1-15-2021

A personal reflection by Hollis Wein, JAC Communications/Research Director

It was 1988. I had just arrived back home in Washington, D.C. after my first presidential campaign, the losing campaign of Michael Dukakis. My colleagues and I poured our heart and soul into that campaign. We travelled the country, slept on floors, and knocked on doors.

It was a crushing defeat, but we were energized by the opportunity to effect change, to see America up close and personal, and to play a part in our great democratic process.

Year in Review 12-30-2020

We end 2020 with a renewed sense of hope that our country will finally be able to reset its moral compass after four bruising years of Donald Trump. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will make good government matter again.
