Protesting the Central Corridor LRT Plans

I'm about ready to give up the fight against light rail trains on University Avenue.

I don't like why, either.

The thought of how badly I've failed--both through lack of time investment and lack of skill--at organizing makes me sick at my stomach.

I suck at getting people to follow up.
I suck at following up and doing work myself (like getting my damned flyers and calls to action translated into Hmong, Cambodian, Lao, & Vietnamese).

And now it's mobilizing time and I've got no one standing beside me because I failed at organizing.

That's no reason to give up fighting the good fight.

But it sure makes me feel like doing so.

Hi Katie,

Thanks for the reply on ABW's blog- I'm a bit busy at the moment, but I'll definitely get back to you on all of this later! And don't worry, I am quite critical of the concept of universalism- ah, the curse of expressing oneself in a comment box at midnight after a long day!
