“When you feel guilty for feeling happy, remember that when we can squeeze joy into our lives, we fortify ourselves to sustain this work. In other words, we need the joy to strengthen us and help us advocate for those immigrant families and for our democracy. Moments of joy are our hidden strength.”

I just love that we can honor Angela in this way. We can do more than just remember her, we can take action in her name. Thank you for doing this, Jen.
I forgot to say what I was doing! I made a donation to Moms Demand Action. I’ll be canvassing for Kate Brown another day that week, and I will carry Angela’s name with me.
I did not know Angela well, but she impressed me no less with her brightness, intellect, warmth and authenticity. Her eagerness to do well and right in this world touched me. I’ll join in canvassing for Kate in honor of Angela.
I met Angela at the Indivisible NW Institute, which she played a major hand in organizing and leading. I met her only once but her deep goodness and fire showed through both in her kindness and her fierce activism. Moms Demand Action has another donation in her name. Thank you to all who carry her legacy forward.
I was Angela’s walking buddy the first time she tried canvassing this past spring. If you knew Angela, you know that knocking on strangers’ doors to talk about ballot measures or campaigns was outside of her usual wheelhouse of actions. But she was willing to canvass because these are not usual times. One of her favorite activist t-shirts said “None of this is normal.”
I’ll be canvassing on October 27th in her honor for our Oregon Governor. If you’re local, you can join me. If you’re too far away, in invite you to canvass for an awesome candidate in your area. If Angela could canvass, so can you.
I will work through the AOC checklist this week in honor of Angela. Thank you for persisting!
Angela always brought a serene intensity to her work — her calmness kept me focused and hopeful during the darkest hours of our political lives.
I will be canvassing for Kate and donating to Moms Demand Action.
I’m fortunate to know Angela a bit before her involment as an activist from the school community our kids went to. Her efforts and strong energy to change things to the better always inspired me. I followed her later on social media and some rallies. I will definitely try to honor her and be there to canvass on Saturday. She will be truly missed on so many levels.
I will be also be working through the checklist. Thank you for this!
I did not know Angela, but I will be canvassing for Jamie McLeod-Skinner on Saturday down in Southern Oregon.
Thank you to the 30 friends who came together today to honor Angela with action by canvassing for Gov Kate Brown’s re-election in Washington County today. Your spirit of togetherness and dedication to action in her honor would have pleased her beyond measure.
Just donated to Moms Demand Action through Honoring Angela Ingermann ❤️
I didnt know Angela personally but we both volunteered with AOC. I canvassed this weekend in Central Oregon against Ballot Measure 105. Thank you Angela for lifting me along!
Angela was a dear friend and I miss her very much.
Hearing stories about her today at her service brought tears to my eyes.
I am now subscribed to the checklist and look forward to learning how I can walk in Angela’s footsteps.
Thank you for your leadership, Angela!
