Alicia Crank does a good job illustrating the importance of listening to each other (“Alicia’s View: Our differences can describe and not divide,” The Herald, Jan. 27).
Her webinar forum is an excellent example that could be replicated across the country. It is also a good reminder for us to speak up with our opinion.
Another forum available to all of us is our democracy, where we can speak to those who represent us. Fortunately, both Snohomish County Congressional Reps. Rick Larsen and Suzan DelBene, along with both Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell are good listeners. Call, write, or visit them and see.
Murray, Cantwell and DelBene are in new positions of power and can do even more with our input. Rep. Larsen also in an important position on the transportation committee and welcomes our thoughts. Not sure what to say? How about renewing the expanded Child Tax Credit that cut child poverty in half and reached 90 percent of families across America. Not sure how to do this? RESULTS (results.org) has an active group in Snohomish County for volunteers of all ages, working with both parties, and helping people use their voices. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. So let’s listen to each other and speak up to make a difference!
