Michael F. Bennet, United States Senator
My office has heard serious concerns from Coloradans who fear for the safety of their families and communities. Given the tone and rhetoric of the President-elect’s campaign, this is not surprising.
Our task now is to commit ourselves to the hard work it will take to repair our politics and our national discourse. In Colorado, we know that disagreement does not require disrespect. Now more than ever, we need to set an example as the nation works to build a politics based on inclusion, empathy, and understanding. We must not normalize divisive rhetoric or hateful action. My office will continue to stand up for Americans of every race, religion, and sexual orientation.
Many people have also asked me what they can do during these challenging times. My advice is for Coloradans to involve themselves in causes that they find just. Groups around the country, for example, advocate for the civil rights of all Americans, including immigrants and members of the LGBTQ community. By remaining involved in the public discourse, families across our state can reject the corrosiveness of today’s politics and ensure that our democratic institutions will continue to protect the rights and liberties of all Americans.
I value the input of fellow Coloradans in considering the wide variety of important issues and legislative initiatives that come before the Senate. I hope you will continue to inform me of your thoughts and concerns.
