…stuff like this happens.

Members of the political action group MoveOn.org rallied outside of Rep. Nathan Deal’s Gainesville office Wednesday in support of the American Clean Energy and Security Act.

The group came to express their support of the bill to their congressman.

A variety of people from different backgrounds were present at the event.

“This isn’t about Republicans or Democrats. Everybody in this country’s being affected by this,” said Jen D. Rafanan, a MoveOn member from Gainesville.

Good job to Jen and Sue and everyone connected to the gathering. This is how things start to change. Tiny things like this have their own momentum. And while Congressman Deal’s mind may not have been swayed from whatever drill-baby-drill plans that he had to begin with, that’s truly not the only goal.

When good folks work together, things change. Sometimes that change is imperceptible. But a lead story in the local newspaper is a good starting point.
