Remember this?


Well, now this!

Special counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers, accusing them of interfering in the 2016 US presidential election.

They are charged with hacking the computer networks of members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. They allegedly coordinated to release damaging information to sway the election under the names “DCLeaks” and “Guccifer 2.0.” However, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told reporters that it’s unclear if their efforts changed the outcome of the election.

(Proof he’s an amateur or, really, a puppet. Experienced dictators know better than to leave home while a sh*tstorm is brewing.  Even Putin knows Trump is in too deep and doesn’t give a fig. THAT should light a fire under some kettles.)

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.

Hillary Clinton delivers Romanes Lecture of hope

Speaking at Oxford University’s Sheldonian Theatre, the former Democrat candidate condemned the Russian strongman for promoting racism and “fake news”.”We are in the midst of a global struggle,” Clinton said, “between liberal democracy and a rising tide of illiberalism.”Vladimir Putin has positioned himself as a leader of an authoritarian, white supremacist and xenophobic movement,” she said.She accused Russia of trying to break up the EU and Nato, destroy the US’s traditional alliances, and “undermine democracy wherever they can”.

‘World at global tipping point’

Sharon Tobin

Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has described the world as at “a global tipping point” where “even facts and reason are under assault like never before”.Giving a public lecture at Trinity College in Dublin, she described it as a moment that will determine whether we embrace “free people, human rights and democracy” or “retreat to closed societies, oppression and authoritarianism”.Speaking to a packed to capacity lecture hall, it was speech directed at millennials, whom she said were “proving to be some of the most effective activists”.Read more >>>>

Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered an impassioned speech about the merits of democracy during a special visit to Dublin.

She was being recognised with an Honorary Doctorate at Trinity College Dublin and spoke to a crowd at the university’s Edmund Burke Theatre, an audience including students, activists and politicians, including former Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald.

The hour long engagement was sprinkled with signature Hillary presentation: discussing the ongoing fight for women’s rights, the increasingly powerful influence over the West by Russia with just the right amount of humour.

“A lot has happened since I was last in Ireland. I became a grandmother twice over, which is just about the greatest thing in th world. As you may have heard, I ran for president. The grandparenting went great, but the other part, not so much,” she said.

Since I reached out to ask this community to step up and support the groups working to protect and reunite families that have been separated at the border, you’ve raised more than $1 million dollars that will be split between the teams at the American Civil Liberties Union, the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, Human Rights First, Kids in Need of Defense, La Union del Pueblo Entero, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, United We Dream Action, We Belong Together, and the Women’s Refugee Commission.

To each and every person who made a donation, no matter how big or small: Thank you.

You may have heard about the White House’s just-announced executive order. It will mean more families and children are kept in detention centers and jails for longer — and it doesn’t offer a plan to reunite families already separated. This is not a solution.

Right now, protests, marches, and other events are being organized across the country for Saturday, June 30th to demand our government stop treating these children and their parents like criminals — take a moment to find one near you, then say you’ll join millions of Americans in standing against this cruel practice.

One mother unable to find their infant or one child being kept in a cage would be unacceptable. What’s happening right now is a crisis so overwhelming that it can be difficult to know how best to help, but your voice is needed now more than ever.

Please sign up for a rally in your community — or to host an event of your own — and take a stand on behalf of immigrant families:

Thank you,
