What are your thoughts on climate change?

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Amy for America
empowered by Salsa



Here’s something you should know about Amy: She believes in science.

That shouldn’t be controversial, but we have a president who routinely ignores the facts. Nowhere is that clearer than on the issue of climate change, which the president has repeatedly called a “hoax.” 

That’s just irresponsible. As president, Amy would make fighting climate change a top priority. That’s why she’s committed to rejoining the International Climate Change Agreement on day one of her presidency. 

Take our quick survey and tell us your thoughts on climate change.

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 
Hello,
Please note: this email contains language that may trigger feelings of trauma related to gun violence.
— 
Twenty years ago, two Columbine High School students murdered twelve peers and one teacher. 
Two decades later, the rate of school shootings has increased. In 2018, there were more incidents of gun violence and more gun deaths at schools than any other year on record. In no other developed nation do students face these unprecedented levels of gun violence in their schools.
We owe it to every victim, every survivor, every student, every teacher, every parent, and all school staff across America to pass universal background checks, to place restrictions on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and to prohibit bump stocks

Will you help celebrate Cory’s birthday?

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 
Friend,
One of the best parts about being a member of Team Cory is that community service is woven throughout everything we do — including the boss’s birthday. So, when Cory proposed we celebrate his big 5-0 with a day of service, we couldn’t wait to invite you.
That’s why we’re asking you, as one of our best supporters, to host a 50-minute (or longer!) community service event in your neighborhood next Saturday. We’re calling it “50 for 50”.
Knowing Cory, none of this will come as a surprise to you. He’s always been dedicated to serving his community in any capacity he can. When Cory graduated from law school, he started his career in Newark to work as a tenants’ rights lawyer alongside some fierce local advocates.

That’s right, it’s 4/20

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 

TULSI 2020

 
 

Friend —

I’m passionate about legalizing marijuana because to me, it’s a basic question of fairness and freedom of choice for the American people. And since 60% of voters support legalizing pot, it’s clear that the American people agree. It appalls me that marijuana is considered a Schedule 1 drug, alongside heroin, and that our country arrested 600,000 people just for possession in 2017 alone. Meanwhile, Big Pharma gets off scot free for pushing highly addictive opioids on to patients who don’t need them. Justice means expunging the records of those with marijuana possession charges and fully prosecuting Big Pharma for fueling an opioid epidemic that has killed thousands. 

If you’re getting this email, I believe you want my kind of common sense, bipartisan approach — on marijuana, Medicare, education and foreign policy — leading our country. 

Will you make a donation TODAY on 4/20 to support common sense marijuana policy in the White House?

Friend — 
Hello and thank you for your support!  It means everything to us.  
Our latest rally was Thursday night in Atlanta—more than 1,000 amazing people came out.  We made many new friends; the Humanity First Tour is a blast and getting bigger and better as we grow.  The rally was covered in the Atlanta Journal Constitution the next day.   
A large crowd gathered in a public place to hear Andrew Yang  speak
Andrew Yang addresses a gathering of supporters in Atlanta
One benefit of the Tour is all of the press we have been getting at each stop.  A couple people have run analyses of the number of press mentions and articles about different presidential candidates.  Perhaps not surprisingly, I am in last place.

This is the single most effective way to support all Democrats — including whoever becomes our Democratic nominee for president:

Democrats/Join us.

I’m Mayor Barrett, and I’m incredibly thrilled to welcome all of America to the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee next year!

Next July will be the first time in our history that we’ll host a major party’s convention, and as a city, we could not be more proud of this opportunity to show America what our great city has to offer, and what makes us all proud to call ourselves Milwaukeeans.

I see the City of Milwaukee as a microcosm of our nation. We’re working class people with working class roots who represent diverse backgrounds and histories. This community is proof that when Democrats come together and put in the hard work it takes to win elections up and down the ticket, the lives of everyday people and families are better off for it.

The Democratic Party has a tremendous amount of work ahead of us to prepare for 2020. From planning the convention here on the ground, to hosting fair and transparent debates, to building the strong party infrastructure it’ll take to win the White House and seats nationwide, our party truly can’t get this done without the early support of grassroots Democrats like you. The fight for 2020 will be the fight of our lifetimes, Michael, which is why I’m asking you to join this powerful movement to elect a Democratic president and win seats in all 50 states next year.

FW: This email is about tax policy (but you should still read it)

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
My plan to put more money in your pocket.
Friend,
So many Americans find themselves with more month at the end of their money than money at the end of their month. The cost of everything — from rent to prescription drugs to childcare — seems to be going up, but wages are virtually flat.
The truth of the matter is, right now, we have a tax system that is unfair to workers — and this administration is working hard to make it even worse for everyone other than the wealthiest Americans and the biggest companies.
I’ve had enough of President Trump’s idea that if we give the richest among us tax breaks, then somehow that’s going to help us all. It’s nonsense.
I have a plan to cut taxes for more than half of all Americans. The Rise Credit would benefit millions of working and middle class people, not just the wealthy few.

Mueller report released — next steps

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
The urgency of uniting a massive, grassroots movement to stop another Trump presidency and elect a new president who will protect democracy is clear. Direct voter contact is the best way to ensure we do not see another four years of Trump. ———————————————————————————————————————————-
 ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  

Beto for America

 

Beto just traveled across New Hampshire as part of his trip to listen to Americans across the country — but there is no way he can personally reach all of the voters we need to win this election. That means he needs your help now.

With the Mueller report out yesterday, the urgency of uniting a massive, grassroots movement to stop another Trump presidency and elect a new president who will protect democracy is clear.

We need more volunteers stepping up to talk to voters. Direct voter contact is the best way to ensure we do not see another four years of Trump. People need to hear about our vision for the country.

Add your name if you’re interested in knocking on doors and talking to voters in your neighborhood. We’ll provide all the support and info you need.

Impeachment

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Warren for President

The Mueller report lays out facts showing that a hostile foreign government attacked our 2016 election to help Donald Trump and Donald Trump welcomed that help. Once elected, Donald Trump obstructed the investigation into that attack.

Mueller put the next step in the hands of Congress: “Congress has authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.” The correct process for exercising that authority is impeachment.

To ignore a president’s repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways.

The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States.

I want to make sure you know where I stand.

— Elizabeth

Can you make a donation to our campaign today? The political and financial establishment are plotting against us, so it’s important that our campaign is prepared to take them on and win. Bernie can’t do it alone.

For the first time, Bernie has taken the lead in a national poll:

Emerson Polling – April 15, 2019 
Sanders: 29%
Biden: 24%
Buttigieg: 9%
Harris: 8%

This is a campaign with all the momentum. More than 1 million people have signed up to volunteer. We are a campaign funded almost exclusively by a record number of small-dollar donors. And on April 27, supporters will host more than 5,000 organizing kick-off events.

But our strong start in this race has members of the political and financial establishment plotting against us.

They are already planning a “Stop Sanders” campaign and will spend unlimited amounts of money to try to defeat us. So it’s important that our campaign is prepared to take them on and win, which is why we are asking you directly:

Make a donation to our campaign and we are going to win this nomination, defeat Trump, and transform this country.

TRUMP — Stop assisting Saudi Arabia’s genocidal war in Yemen

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 

TULSI 2020

 
 

Dear friend —

Unlike President Trump, I will not turn our great country into the prostitute of Saudi Arabia. 

By vetoing the War Powers resolution that would have seen the US finally end its support of Saudi Arabia’s genocidal war against the people of Yemen, Trump again proves that he is the servant of Saudi Arabia — the theocratic dictatorship which spends billions of dollars every year spreading the most extreme and intolerant form of Islam around the world, the very ideology that motivates al-Qaeda and other jihadists. 

Trump’s veto of the War Powers Act is further a betrayal of his campaign promise to end “stupid wars.” Trump is caving to the neocons around him who are fomenting regime change war in Venezuela and Iran and escalating the new Cold War and nuclear arms race. These wars have and will continue to waste trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives, undermine our national security by strengthening terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda, and cause untold suffering and devastation for the people in the countries where we wage these wars.

You can accept Trump’s veto, or you can do two things right now that will only take 3 minutes of your time: 

1) Watch this video where I explain how, because of the actions of President Trump, the U.S is complicit in the genocide that the theocratic dictatorship of Saudi Arabia is waging on the people of Yemen. And then share it with your friends to get the word out about what this veto really means.

This is a longer email about how the DNC is organizing earlier in the cycle than ever before.

You and I both know that we can’t treat this presidential election cycle as business as usual, Michael.

Democrats/Join us.

Good morning — my name is Muthoni, and I’m the DNC’s new National Political and Organizing Director.

I came to the DNC because the importance of this election cycle can’t be overstated. Families across our country are hurting, and this is our final chance to vote out Donald Trump and his GOP enablers before the 2020 redistricting process re-shapes our political landscape for the next decade.

The DNC has never invested in organizing for the general election this early in a presidential cycle. We’re leaving it all on the field, but in order to do that, our party needs the early resources necessary to power the essential programs it’ll take to organize and win in all 50 states.

We have unfinished business in the states. It’s on all of us to unite people with the common thread of our values, to organize alongside local communities, and to put our eventual 2020 Democratic presidential nominee and the Democratic candidates running for seats across our country in the best possible position to win.

All of that and more will be the DNC’s mission over the next 19 months, and we’re already hard at work laying the foundation for victories in all 50 states this year and next. Thanks to the early support of grassroots Democrats like you, we’re building smarter, stronger, and more inclusive plans to mobilize and engage voters nationwide. Together, we’re furthering the work Democrats have done to truly make the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate, and the White House “the people’s house.”
