Laurie Dobson, who contributed this article to TCBH!, says: I am a peace-and-justice activist who ran in Connecticut for Democratic State Rep in ’02, as an Indie for US Senate in Maine in ’08, and as a Bernie candidate for State Rep in Maine in 2016. I worked hard for the 2016 Bernie primary campaign but, unhappy with his decision after Hillary’s nomination to quit his campaign and endorse her, I attended his pro-Hillary rally Nov. 1st, 2016. There I was arrested for waving a green scarf for Jill Stein. I am supporting Bernie again now anyway because, though I am a mother and well educated #metoo feminist, I refuse to fall for liberal, divisive, single-issue identity politics. Stereotypes don’t apply.
