This Is It

The day we’ve all been working toward for so long is almost here. I can’t wait to get there, and get through it, and get to the other side, and I’m sure many of you feel the same. We can do this. Hell, we’ve been doing this, some of us for years, some of us before Trump stumbled backwards into the White House. The work won’t be over in a month, but the work will change soon, as we enter a bright new era in our country’s history… if we don’t let up in this home stretch. (We may even flip Texas! Along with Beto, Bernie, Stacey, Willie, Oprah and more, you can help make it happen.)

Climate Action Is a Winning Issue

Varshini Prakash and John Podesta for The Nation: Donald Trump Wants a Fight on the Green New Deal. So Do We. New polling from Climate Power 2020 finds 71 percent favor bold government action on climate change, while only 18 percent oppose it. And talking about climate moves votes for Democrats. When presented as a choice between aDemocratic congressional candidate in favor of bold climate action and an anti-action Republican, the vote moves 14 points in the Democrat’s favor. This jump is even bigger—21 points—for centrist Republican and Democratic voters. These numbers are astronomical, and they make clear that running aggressively on climate is the Democratic Party’s biggest political opportunity this election. …Running boldly on tackling the climate crisis, running continue reading

Taking Mitch’s Gavel

From a recent email from the wonderful group Swing Left: Whenever we talk about the Senate, we get some version of the same question in our inboxes: why aren’t we trying to unseat Mitch? The answer is: we are, just not directly. Mitch McConnell is the most unpopular Senator in the country. He’s done nothing for his constituents. But Kentucky is a ruby red state, and flipping this one seat, no matter how satisfying, won’t give Democrats control of the Senate—another terrible Republican would just take up the mantle as Senate majority leader. For the price of contesting his seat, we can have a huge impact on several races across the country—races that could decide control of the entire Senate. continue reading

Take Action in Solidarity with Black Lives

You’ve probably already started, but this page from Indivisible is a good starting place, too (or a resource to restart). Background, calls to action, resources to learn more, and ways to contribute. A small sample: We have a national crisis of white supremacist violence against Black people in this country. In the past 10 years alone, we witnessed the deaths of thousands of Black people at the hands of police. Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, and Philando Castile are just some of the names of those we’ve lost to racialized police violence. And the COVID-19 pandemic has only created more opportunities for police to question and detain Black people. In New York City, for example, from March continue reading
