“…when one who is just engaging on an issue feels intimidated in any way, it is really an affront to our democratic process.” – Hillary Harveyof the Source.

“…in a Democracy if it’s going to work, people have to feel comfortable standing up and speaking their mind and speaking truth to power. If you are intimated in the process…you become increasingly thoughtful and hesitant in the way you enter into public debate and that’s not good for anyone.” – Lynn M. Eckert, UC Legislator and Professor of Political Science at Marist College.
