Highlights from the interview with Our Revolution Yuma's Bryan Rasmussen:

"You have a voice. You have a vote. It's just as valid as anyone else's."

"I'm all for having a conversation. It's okay to disagree! That's part of our problem with polarization in our country today is that people are afraid to disagree with other people."

"It's okay to disagree with other people about these issues, but it's important we have the conversation. That's what makes this country America."
