Our Revolution

Kevin,

The past two weeks have been a rollercoaster. We saw our endorsed candidates win in unlikely places—Larry Krasner was elected to Philadelphia District Attorney defeating a corrupt party patronage system and Christine Pellegrino won a State Assembly seat in a district that voted for Trump. While yesterday’s race in Montana did not turn out the way we had hoped, our efforts made a huge difference. There is real support for our progressive agenda as we fight to change the systems of power.

There will be many more races in the months to come, in red states, blue states, and those that are right on the tipping point. We need to be ready to fight for every single vote, no matter where that fight takes us, and Our Revolution will be there to help progressives win in every way that we can.

This wouldn’t be possible without your support. We’re going to continue building this grassroots movement. Can you spare $5 to help Our Revolution organize across the country?

The most important thing that we can do right now is decide how best we can continue to build the political revolution. Real progressive values are strongly competing in important races all over our country, and we must continue to support them. The surface of what our movement is capable of has not yet even been scratched.

Sustained growth and increased voter turnout isn’t going to come from campaigns that parachute in three months before election day and then leave once the ballots are cast. Winning trust is hard work. It takes talking to voters about issues they care about, and solutions that they believe in. We’ve only just begun launching state and local groups across the country, and already Our Revolution members are creating change from the bottom up, changing the fabric of the Democratic Party and inspiring new participants to get involved in the political process. It takes time to build, but make no mistake: we’re making an impact right now.

We’re dedicated to keep fighting for the future we all believe in. Please chip in $5 to show that you’re ready to keep fighting too.

Your efforts drive this movement. Thank you for everything you do.

In solidarity,

Shannon Jackson
Executive Director
Our Revolution
