On Friday, Sept. 6, 2019, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting Clinton tweeted Sept. 1, “Hurricane Dorian has already devastated the Bahamas and is about to devastate the Great State of Florida. Please help us help the victims by giving a huge donation to Clinton Foundation Today. We rebuilt Haiti and we’ll rebuild Nassau and Orlando.” It was from a parody account with the moniker @MadamPresident to dupe users. Clinton’s real account is @HillaryClinton.

When this country was founded, voting was a right for some and a pipe dream for others. While generations of courageous advocates and leaders have helped extend that right to more and more people, the “one voice, one vote” system is still up against the mass gerrymandering that has happened under Republican-controlled state legislatures and governorships since the 2010 elections.Our friends at the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, an Onward Together grantee, have a plan to combat map manipulation by targeting 16 state legislative chambers and three gubernatorial races in 2019-2020 cycle. If you care about fair redistricting, sign up now to learn more about their plan.

Republicans in states across the country have manipulated the system in order to choose their voters, rather than letting voters choose their representatives. We’ve seen the effects of gerrymandering at every level, including more than one presidential election in recent history. Ending “map manipulation” at the national and state level is crucial to the future of our democracy.

Onward Together was a proud partner in the work NDRC did in 2017 to defend three Nevada state senators from a conservative-led recall campaign. Learn more about what the NDRC is doing now to combat gerrymandering by adding your name:

I hope you’re staying cool this very warm summer.

Bill and I were thrilled to cheer on the US Women’s National Team at the World Cup last month, and even more thrilled just a few weeks later to welcome our third grandchild into a world in which women rule — at least on the field. Chelsea and I have also been hard at work on a new book that celebrates some of our favorite “gutsy” women; you’ll be able to read it this fall.
Meanwhile, summer can be a difficult time for groups like our Onward Together partners to raise money. People go on vacation, the weather is hot, and attentions drift. But I know that this team has the power to stay focused on what matters.
Today, make a donation to Onward Together so that we can ensure that these groups and more get the attention they need this summer and beyond.

Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton will publish The Book of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories of Courage and Resilience on 1st October 2019, with Simon & Schuster.


“Celebrating the women who have inspired them throughout their lives, The Book of Gutsy Women will feature portraits of more than 100 women, celebrating the histories that all too often get overlooked or are left unwritten,” the synopsis reads. “The women featured in the book range from Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old climate activist whose Asperger’s syndrome has shaped her advocacy, to Sor Juan Inés de la Cruz, a 17th-century nun and poet whose outspoken views on women’s role in society scandalized audiences.”
