Voters from the left: Tricia, Diane and Elise, Jorie as Alice
Letter from Editor – Autumn 2020
The theme for this, our fifth anniversary issue of Alice, is VOTE! Vote to create the country we want to live in. Vote to be on the right side of history. Vote for the health and safety of the next generation.
Alice is a safe place to share opinions, ideas, and art. Alice is inclusive and welcoming to all. With that said, we vote for a change of administration. We are done with the greed and the lying and the lack of authentic representation from the people who work for us.
For all these reasons and more, we voted:
Donald Trump demeans women. He is a thief and a liar. He has mental health issues and probably a steroid shot once a week. How can we trust a man who doesn’t have a pet?
Kamala Harris will make a fine president one day. And that day can’t come soon enough.
While we support as many women as possible on the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett is not a feminist. She is a step in the wrong direction— towards the past.
Americans can marry whomever they’d like, whenever they’d like, wherever they’d like. It’s settled; get the government out of my underwear drawer.
A woman’s decision regarding her own body’s health— now and in the future— is her own. Period.
Nurses, teachers, and grocery store clerks are the true heroes of this pandemic. They should make a sustainable living with provisions for the health of themselves and their families.
The country is burning. We have a militarized police force that judges the color of our skin more than the moral character of its commander in chief.
We have too many guns. And not the kind used to hunt for food.
We are poisoning our environmental beyond repair and forfeiting our public lands to a dinosaur of an industry.
We are separating children from their parents to sleep in cages at night, with nothing but a government-issued blanket to keep them warm.
In October Alice marched in solidarity for women across the world who have suffered under this presidential administration’s lack of leadership. The only way forward, as we see it, is to turn Congress blue, to elect as many women candidates as possible, and to restore sense and sensibility to our government. There is much to do in the years to come, and we are just the women to do it.
