Reshma Ketkar of Maplewood was busy attending Emerge New Jersey, a candidate training program for Democratic women, and missed a local poster-making event for the Women’s March. A neighbor noticed and offered to create a sign for her, a testament to Maplewood’s spirit of community. Herself an active community member and a local outreach coordinator for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, Reshma has always been politically active. She recalls the pride she felt as a college student and first time voter, walking the two miles to the polls. Reshma is proud of our peaceful democracy but feels it now under threat. More than ever, she hears the call to be engaged. “It’s incumbent upon us to make sure that the future is what we want it to be.” She hears the future asking, “Where were you on January 21, 2017?” Reshma knows exactly where she will be: marching with the resistance.
