Well said, Charles.

You said "Personally, I think it would be great to 
say "We want this this and this, and we're not leaving. However, once 
we get those things, we're STILL not leaving because there's still so 
much to be done and we will continue forward." 

The "We're not leaving" until we get the change we deserve is the compelling narrative for me, and many.  But there still has to be some kind of deliverable. At some point, Congress and the people will ask "How is winning measured?" There needs to be a reasonable set of demands which can be realistically achieved while the public's interest is there and focused. If that is squandered, it will be very hard to get back.  The movement needs some "wins" early on.
