Today, I’d like to tell you about a few of the candidates Onward Together has been able to support in their historic campaigns, thanks to the support of our official members like you.

If you’re ready to elect Lucy, Gina, Stacey, Deb, and hundreds more Democrats this fall, make a donation right now.

  • Lucy McBath is a mother, wife, businesswoman, and activist who is running for Congress in the 6th district of Georgia. After her son, Jordan Davis, was shot and killed at a gas station in Florida by a man objecting to the music Jordan was playing in his car, Lucy turned her grief into action by fighting for both gun safety and criminal justice reform. I was honored to get to know Lucy on the campaign trail in 2015 and 2016, and I’m honored now to support her in her campaign.
  • Gina Ortiz Jones is an American Iraq War veteran, intelligence officer, and candidate for Congress in the 23rd district of Texas. Gina’s focus is on creating good-paying jobs and expanding health care options in Texas. If Gina wins in November, she could become the first lesbian, Iraq War veteran, and first-generation Filipina-American to hold a US House seat in Texas. It was a joy to spend some time with Gina recently at a fundraiser for first-time female candidates.
  • Stacey Abrams is a member of the Georgia House of Representatives and the Democratic nominee for governor of Georgia who has served as House Minority Leader, founded a voter registration organization, and written eight romance novels. Now she’s running for governor to expand education opportunities and strengthen the economy in Georgia. I was thrilled to endorse Stacey before her primary win in May — if she wins in November, she’ll be the first black woman governor in America.
  • Deb Haaland is a lawyer, the daughter of two veterans, an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Laguna, and a candidate for Congress in the 1st district of New Mexico. If Deb wins in November, she’ll be the first Native woman elected to Congress. In addition to being a longtime volunteer on Democratic campaigns, Deb is also a proud alum of the New Mexico affiliate of Emerge America — one of our Onward Together partners.

Not only has this team remained committed to our values and to this fight, but we’ve been able to support more than thirty smart, strong candidates across the country in their campaigns to make our country more fair and more equal. Make a donation today to help Onward Together find and support even more candidates like these — and cross even more firsts off of our list:

A verb followed by a period, the imperative.  A command.

Definition: Imperatives are verbs used to give orders, commands,warning or instructions, and (if you use “please”) to make a request. It is one of the three moods of an English verb (indicative, imperative and subjunctive).

 

Resisting is imperative. Now it’s a sticker. Want one?

 

 

One of the most incredible things to come out of the 2016 election has been how many members of this big-hearted team have turned frustration into action.

You’re leading local campaigns and organizing protests. You’re showing up at town halls, rallies, and phone banks. You’re using your voices to support candidates who are breaking barriers and to speak out against policies that do harm instead of good.

I’d like to send you an Onward Together sticker to thank you for your commitment — just make a donation of $5 or more today, and Onward Together will get your sticker in the mail.


Get my sticker
Because of your dedication and generosity, we’ve been able to provide 12 groups with mentorship, resources, and more than $1 million in financial support — and that’s only in our first year. As the midterms draw closer, we’ll be backing even more hard-working, groundbreaking organizations and candidates.

If you’re with us, then donate to support this work and let us send you a sticker to say thank you.

Onward!

Hillary

OMG! She made it orange! She knows! She has always known!

I know not everyone follows Hillary Clinton around like I do, but let’s get a few things straight. She has not been in hiding anywhere. She did not suddenly swoop in and “step up” her involvement in the upcoming midterms. She is not “back” from anywhere. She was never gone.

That Onward Together conference call on Monday was a review of a year of hard work. Those donations were made over the course of a year. This meme of Hillary hiding in the Chappaqua woods and abruptly bursting forth with endorsements and donations is bogus. She has been hard at work all along.

I will not link to any articles or posts that imply or state outright that Hillary Clinton suddenly stepped out of the dugout onto the field or that she ought to be tweeting more or whatever it is people think she is or is not doing. Hillary knows better than to give these midterms spit and a prayer. Anyone who thinks she has not done enough or is not doing enough does not know Hillary Clinton and her work ethic.

Rant over.

Go here to see what Onward Together has been doing. >>>>>

When my friend Howard Dean and I first talked about forming a new organization, it was because we were blown away by the energy and commitment shown by activists — new and old — in the aftermath of the 2016 election. We asked ourselves: What can we do to help them?

Onward Together was formed as a way to support and connect the groups that are doing the work that absolutely needs to be done right now — from mobilizing voters to encouraging and training new activists to recruiting people who are ready to run for office themselves. In 2017, we partnered with 11 organizations headed up by by smart, passionate leaders. We offer funding and strategic advice, and connect them with resources.

And this spring, we finally had a chance to bring those leaders together in one place, and it was really something special.

Take a moment to watch the video we’ve made celebrating our first Onward Together convening.

The leaders who joined us in New York come from every background. Some of them have been doing this work for years, while some were motivated by the 2016 election. They have different interests and approaches, but all share a belief that our country can be made better by the people who love it.

I really hope you’ll take a moment to watch this video, because I think you’ll find these activists as inspiring as I do — and I hope you’ll learn more about a group you’d like to support yourself.

Onward!

Given the news coming out of the Supreme Court this week, I wanted to introduce you to the newest group that Onward Together is partnering with.

Demand Justice organizes progressive activists and voters around protecting our federal courts. In the time since the announcement from Justice Kennedy regarding his plans to retire at the end of July, Demand Justice has motivated thousands of people across the country to make calls and join protests demanding that Senate Democrats promise not to vote to confirm any of Trump’s extreme right-wing likely nominees for Justice Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court.

Reproductive rights, voting rights, access to health care — so many things we hold dear hang in the balance if the Supreme Court swings to the right. Our court system is one of the important tools we have for keeping our country just and fair. Please take a moment today to learn more about how Demand Justice plans to protect it.

Thank you,

Hillary

The organization: Demand Justice

The organizers: Brian Fallon, Executive Director

The mission: To protect the federal judiciary and stop Trump from hijacking the courts.

The story: In the wake of the 2016 election, veterans of Capitol Hill, the White House, and the Clinton and Obama campaigns came together to tackle the issue of keeping our courts balanced and fair by motivating progressive voters on issues related to the federal judiciary while influencing the Senate on judicial nominees.

The latest: After Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, Demand Justice lept into action, launching a movement to demand that Democrats in the Senate oppose anyone on Donald Trump’s SCOTUS shortlist.

The next step: Head to demandjustice.org to get involved and support Demand Justice.
