It’s your turn! Here is an email from Hillary today.

What an incredible year it has been for first-time candidates. Of the 23 Democratic women joining the House of Representatives in January, 19 have never held elected office — and they’re ready to take Congress by storm. And dozens of young people will take their seats on city councils, school boards, and more, due in part to the help they received from one of our proud Onward Together partners: Run for Something.

Today, on National Run for Office Day, Run for Something is celebrating these victories by recruiting an entirely new class of young first-time candidates for office. If you’re a young progressive, I hope you’ll sign up to learn more — because politics could use a few more big-hearted members of this team.

Running for office is one of the most powerful ways that you can work with the people in your community to come up with real, meaningful solutions to the problems we all face. It’s also one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do. Take it from me.

If you are ready to run for office or are interested in learning more about what it takes to run, please go to www.RunforOfficeDay.com and get started. The team at Run for Something will walk you through the process:

Onward!

2008 Women of the Year honoree Hillary Clinton spent much of midterms season campaigning for Democrats running for Congress, including Florida politician Donna Shalala and Chicago gubernatorial candidate J.B. Prtizker. So it’s really no wonder she surprised the crowd at Glamour‘s Women of the Year awards for an inspiring speech on the importance of women running for office.

Read the powerful message she delivered to the crowd, below:

“Congratulations to all of the Glamour Women of the Year being honored tonight—don’t they inspire us and give us hope about the future?

“This week, exactly two years ago, was a rough one. But, you know, my personal disappointment wasn’t so much about what happened, but how do we create even more opportunity for all the people in America. ‘An America that’s hopeful, inclusive and big-hearted,’ as I said afterward. That remains my mission today.

As we put the 2018 mid-terms to bed, Hillary took to social media to deliver her message on the results.  Here is what she posted on Facebook. The same comments are also posted at her Twitter account.

 

Congratulations to all the voters, volunteers, organizers, and candidates who voted last night to put a powerful check on this administration and start building a better future for everyone in our country.

It was a historic night in so many ways: For the first time ever, over 100 women were elected to Congress—including a record number of women of color.

Sharice Davids and Deb Haaland will be the first Native American women to ever serve in Congress. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar will be the first Muslim women to serve.

Ayanna Pressley and Jahana Hayes will be the first black women to represent Massachusetts and Connecticut in Congress, respectively. Tish James will be the first black woman to be New York’s attorney general.

Janet Mills will be the first woman governor of Maine. Cindy Axne and Abby Finkenauer will be the first women to represent Iowa in the House. Finkenauer and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are the youngest women to be elected to Congress ever.

The inspiring Lucy McBath became an activist for common-sense gun reform after her son, Jordan, was shot and killed. This cycle, she ran for Congress in a heavily Republican district in Georgia—and it looks likely she will win.

These historic firsts are important not just because representation matters (and it does), but because these extraordinary women will bring perspectives that have been absent from our policy debates for far too long.

There were important wins for rights, too, including Floridians voting to restore the voting rights of 1 million of their fellow citizens and Nevada approving automatic voter registration.

None of these victories would have been possible if people had simply given up after the heartbreak of 2016. They belong to all the volunteers and candidates who worked impossible hours, logged hundreds of miles, and knocked on countless doors.

Win or lose, what you’ve built will continue long after last night.

Our work is far from over. As we celebrate our wins, let’s be clear about what’s ahead.

This is a crucial step in a long road to repairing our democracy. It’ll take all of us to do it. What a start this is.

Chelsea has penned an eloquent op-ed on recent events. I’m with her!

Trump Has Helped Mainstream Hate, But This Election Is Our Chance To Push Back

Chelsea Clinton
Over the past two years, our country has been engaged in an ongoing conversation about “civility.” From the Women’s March to NFL players who kneel in protest of racial inequality and injustice, from people interrupting Trump administration officials out to dinner to protestors interrupting Supreme Court nomination hearings to register their dissent, various pundits and leaders across the political spectrum have expressed distaste for what they see as a rise in tactics that are uncivil, unproductive, and anti-democratic.
I’ve watched this debate unfold with frustration the entire time because it seems very clear to me that calling out bigotry and standing up for human rights — and confronting leaders who promote and exploit racism, xenophobia, transphobia, sexism, anti-Semitism either in their rhetoric or their policies or both — is the very definition of civil behavior. But in the past week the conversation reached an entirely new low.
People, largely Republican commentators equated confronting public servants in restaurants to bombs being sent to my parents’ home — as if explosive material and threats of violence are at all equivalent to demands for answers, accountability, and a recognition of shared humanity. These demands may be coming from righteously angry people, and they may make some uncomfortable, but in no way are these peaceful protests, even if yelled out, equivalent to actual threats and acts of violence.
