Onward Together!Every time a new partner joins the Onward Together family, I’m reminded of how many people believe that, when we work together, we have the power to make our country better.

That belief is also why I’m asking you to give to Onward Together this Giving Tuesday. With one contribution of $25 or more, you’re investing in an entire generation of progressive organizations — including two new partner groups that I look forward to telling you more about soon.

With your help, we can not only support our current partners, but find even more groups that are already doing the most good and need a boost from a team like ours.

Give to Onward Together today — and then stay tuned to hear about our newest partners:

Donate

Onward!

Onward Together!

Before you sit down and share a meal with loved ones today, I’d like to ask you to consider making a donation that will be evenly split among 12 groups working to protect children and families who have been affected by the administrations cruel border policies.

More than a year after the first reports of children being taken away from their parents at the border, there is still so much work to do, from reuniting families to making sure that those seeking asylum have the resources they need to navigate a complicated system.Too often, it feels as though all we can do is read the news and be heartbroken. I’m grateful that, over and over again, this team has chosen to take action.

This Thanksgiving, please make a contribution to support 12 groups working on protecting and reuniting families at the border:

Thank you — I hope your holiday is warm and wonderful,

Onward Together!Last week, we saw an incredible slate of Democratic candidates win local and statewide elections — including those who helped turn both chambers of the Virginia state legislature blue for the first time in a decade. But while we’ve made strides to take back seats like these over the last few years, we’re still behind.

Today, on National Run for Office Day, one Onward Together partner has a simple solution: Recruit an entirely new class of young, progressive first-time candidates to run for seats on city councils, school boards, state legislatures, and more.

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 — I should know. And when more Democrats run, we all win. In just three years, Run for Something has elected 297 people across 45 states, and supported thousands of candidates whose turnout efforts boosted voter participation up and down the ballot.

If you’re 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!

Onward Together!

Last month, I joined our friends at the Albert Shanker Institute and the American Federation of Teachers for a conference on the ways we can protect and defend American democracy. In my opening remarks, I spoke about the risks that voter suppression, fake news, and a lack of election security pose to our country’s very foundation.

The founders of four Onward Together partner and grantee organizations also joined the conference as panelists that day: Eric Holder of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, Andrew Gillum of Forward Florida, Leah Greenberg of Indivisible, and María Teresa Kumar of Voto Latino.

Watch what we had to say here.

Meanwhile, it’s a busy time for all of the groups we work with. Our friends at Run for Something Action Fund have just launched WhereCanIRun.org, an all-new site that helps potential candidates decide where, how, and when to run for office. Dream Big Nevada, one of our grantee organizations, is raising money to cover DACA renewal fees for eligible young people — and you can contribute today.

As always, I’m grateful to have you on this team.

Onward!

In this Wednesday, May 29, 2019 file photo, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivers Hunter College’s commencement address in New York. 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.

Donate

Onward!
