I am pleased to announce the launch of a new progressive organization, The Sanders Institute, and respectfully request your participation.
During Bernie’s presidential campaign, I had the pleasure of traveling around this country – seeing its beauty and experiencing the passion and dedication of its people. I learned so much from meeting people who were involved in making their communities better and I came away with a determination to ensure those voices would be heard.
I wanted to start an organization that would bring people together to learn from each other and discuss how to make our country and our democracy better. I wanted to actively engage individuals like you, along with the media and other organizations, in learning about progressive solutions to economic, environmental, racial, and social justice issues. A true democracy requires an informed electorate and we have so much to learn from each other.
That’s what The Sanders Institute is all about – and we need your participation and support to make it a reality. Please visit our website, take a look, delve into the issues and ideas that interest you, and contribute to the conversation.
We have brought together some of the most prominent progressive thinkers from around the country: Bill McKibben, the Honorable Nina Turner, Ben Jealous, Dr. Cornel West, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Prof. Jeffrey Sachs, Danny Glover, Dr. Stephanie Kelton, Harry Belafonte and Prof. Robert Reich. Our work draws from their ideas and writings, other progressive and educational sources, and people like you who are engaged and interested in progressive solutions in their communities.
We look forward to your participation.
Jane O’Meara Sanders
