Like the National Party, local democratic leaders are not on the same side of the road ahead. Milwaukee’s progressive youth activists often encounter roadblocks from their moderately elderly. For Democratic Rep. David Bowen, an unprecedented pandemic and uprising is “a wake-up call” for Democrats to “harness the energy” of a youth-led movement for justice.
“This is just anger that young people are engaging across the country,”
Bowen is the only state legislator who attends the People’s Revolution almost every night of protests. “We cannot share the problems that have accumulated over decades. There is an opportunity for the Vice President and Senator to be masters of the topics that make people not give up every day. ”
“People are fighting for change. This opportunity is incumbent on the Democrats to rise to the occasion. ”
