Healing America: Waging Optimism

If you were sick and your physician said you had to take urgent action to remain alive, would you sit around and debate it? Not if you wanted to get well. If I were your doctor I’ll tell you to start by waging optimism and taking action! 

Well, here we are, at the conclusion of this Healing American series. The time for debate is over. The next government of the United States will be elected in less than 400 days. This is the time for action. 

In part one of this Healing America series, we recognized the urgency and illness

In part two, we diagnosed the cause

In part three, we decided to become a miracle cure.

In part four, we set a course for bold action, with America 2.0. 

So, how do we get from where we are today, a sick and dying nation embroiled in political scandal and ineffective government to where we will be upon signing an America 2.0 constitution as soon as possible? 

We start WAGING OPTIMISM and taking action. 

  • We build a movement together. Click here now to take our pledge and get started.
  • We call all justice-hearted Americans mobilize in mass, peaceful, non-violent demonstrations between now and Constitution Day.
  • We make our presence felt at the Democratic and Republic Conventions when the candidates for the President are formally chosen.
  • We demand candidates that will support our America 2.0 Constitution.

Now, it’s time for action.

Who am I to call you to action?

I’m a doctor and the father of five sons.

I am committed to ensuring that my family and all of your families have the opportunity to pursue the American ideal of liberty and justice for all.

My work for the last 30 years has been to hold the United States government accountable. I’ve been waging justice for all Americans and I want you to join me.

I’m an optimist to the core. I’m Waging Optimism now because I’ve seen what happens when people come together, like the time we changed the course of the AIDS epidemic. Like the Climate Justice movement that is making a huge push to save our planet.

On Martin Luther King’s birthday earlier this year, I launched Build A Movement 2020 (#BAM2020) to spark a patriotic revolutionary political movement. The pillars of BAM2020 can be seen here. (Link to blog with pillars). 

I commit my life to healing America and I know we can do it. 

But who I am isn’t as important who you are. 

Will you be the person who at this moment in history took bold action to demand life, liberty and justice for all? 

Will you wage optimism with me? 

Let Justice Ring!

A Vision for Impact in 2020

Eight billion people call this planet home. 

Each of us, every one of us, faces existential challenges that don’t discriminate by politics, race, religion or wealth. We’re in this together.

We’re also in a time of globalization and digitalization. Solutions are at our fingertips. One person can make a greater impact than ever before.

This is our world. Together we can save it. 

The Build a Movement 2020 mission is to bring together political movement, organizations and individuals to heal America and ensure our country advances solutions that protect our world and ensure the survival of all humanity.

Today, we turn the calendar. We are now 364 days away from the next election of the President and Congress. We have just one year to impact this election and ensure accountability in 2021 and beyond.

Over the next two months our vision for 2020 and how we’ll catalyze a movement of change.

At Build a Movement 2020:

  • We call for the restoration of democracy.
  • We call for climate restoration.
  • We call for a sustainable future. 
  • We call for gender equality and universal health care.
  • We call for the end of childhood sexual abuse and trauma that stems from inequalities, racism and gun violence.
