Trump — along with his corporate cronies and deep-pocketed lobbyists — has been hiring organizers in battleground states and running a record number of digital ads.

Join us.

The following message is a part of our 2020 Presidential Candidate Series. For more information, see below.

 

$200 million. That’s how much Donald Trump and the RNC have already raised for his reelection this year. All of that with the general election still more than a year away.

I recently announced my candidacy for president, and while I’ve been traveling across the country and sharing my plans to put political power back in the hands of the American people, Mr. Trump — along with his corporate cronies and corrupt lobbyists — has been hiring organizers and preparing to launch a sweeping field program on the ground in battleground states.

The fact is the Democratic Party’s eventual nominee is relying on the DNC to hand over a strong party operation the moment the general election begins. That means we need to fully fund the Democratic Unity Fund now.

The folks over at DNC HQ are working tirelessly to build and grow the 2020 programs necessary to keep pace with the GOP’s machine. Our eventual nominee will need a well-resourced DNC to have any chance at winning back the White House, which is why I’m asking:

Would you make a $10 donation to my campaign and the DNC’s Democratic Unity Fund? Every bit of support for the DNC will help build the strong party infrastructure Democrats need to win up and down the ticket in 2020.

At 7‌:03 a.m. ET on Mar‌ch 1‌st, Amy from New York became our movement’s first donor. Last night, Linda from Kentucky chipped in, too. Between Amy and Linda, 129,998 Americans (and now more!) have invested in this campaign.

Tod‌ay, I’m so thrilled to announce that 130,000 Americans have made a grassroots donation to our campaign. Together, we’ve fundamentally changed this debate and forced my fellow candidates, the media, and the establishment to finally give our climate crisis the attention it deserves.

We are 130,000 strong.

We are from every state in the country.

We are young people demanding action. And we are parents and grandparents dedicated to making sure the next generation has a fair shot at the same quality of life we have known.

We are Democratic activists who’ve fought for progress for years but know that 2020 is our last chance to get this right. We are people who got involved in politics for the very first time because the status quo will mean the end of humanity as we know it. And, yes, we are Republicans fed-up with the vitriol and division that have defined our politics these past few years.

It’s not equal justice when a kid with an ounce of pot can get thrown in jail, while a bank executive who launders money for a drug cartel can get a bonus. It’s long past time for us to reform our system.

Today I’m proposing a plan to reduce incarceration and improve justice in our country. We need to change what we choose to criminalize, reform police behavior, rein in prosecutorial abuses…

Warren for President

Four words are etched above the Supreme Court: Equal Justice Under Law.

But today in America, there’s one justice system for the rich and powerful, and another one for everybody else.

It’s not equal justice when a kid with an ounce of pot can get thrown in jail, while a bank executive who launders money for a drug cartel can get a bonus. It’s not equal justice when, for the exact same crimes, Black Americans are more likely than whites to be arrested, charged, wrongfully convicted, and given harsher sentences. Right now, Latinx adults are three times more likely to be incarcerated than whites. And the United States has the highest rate of incarceration in the world.

So today I’m proposing a plan to reduce incarceration and improve justice in our country. We need to change what we choose to criminalize, reform police behavior, rein in prosecutorial abuses, improve how we treat people when they’re incarcerated, reintegrate them when they return to our communities, and more.

Add your name if you agree: It’s long past time for bold, structural change to reform our criminal justice system.

Here’s my plan:

1. Reimagine how we talk and think about public safety. My plan focuses on transitioning away from a punitive system and investing in evidence-based approaches that address the underlying drivers of violence and crime — tackling it at its roots, before it ever has a chance to grow.

This includes breaking the school-to-prison pipeline, reducing homelessness and housing insecurity through my housing plan, decriminalizing mental health crises, and focusing on interventions that don’t require incarceration.

2. Change what we choose to criminalize — starting by repealing the 1994 crime bill. It exacerbated incarceration rates in this country by punishing people more severely for even minor infractions and limiting discretion in charging and sentencing in our judicial system. There are some sections of law, like those relating to domestic violence, that should be retained — but the bulk of the law must go.

My plan also involves a new approach to the War on Drugs — which has harmed communities of color — by decriminalizing marijuana and erasing past convictions. It will also end the criminalization poverty by ending cash bail and excessive fines and fees.

3. Reform how the law is enforced. My plan will fundamentally change how police work is done in America. We’ll increase federal oversight capacity, establish a federal standard for the use of force, and work with Congress to pass legislation to prohibit profiling at all levels of law enforcement. And to hold police officers accountable if they violate someone’s constitutional rights, we should restrict qualified immunity.

Real reform also means expanding funding for public defenders, reining in prosecutorial abuses such as coercive plea bargaining, and creating an independent unit to hold accountable prosecutors who abuse their power. We’ll also expand access to justice for people who are wrongfully imprisoned by repealing overly restrictive habeas rules and make it easier to successfully challenge wrongful detention.

4. Fight harsh and immoral sentencing practices and reform incarceration. As president, I’ll use the pardon and clemency powers broadly to right systemic injustices — empowering a clemency board to make recommendations directly to the White House for broad classes of potentially deserving individuals for review — including people who would have benefited from retroactivity under the First Step Act, who are jailed under outdated or discriminatory drug laws, or those serving mandatory minimums that should be abolished.

We should support improved staffing levels and better training for corrections officers, and humane conditions for those behind bars. As president, I will ensure that incarceration meets basic human rights standards, protect special populations, and eliminate private prisons.

5. Set formerly incarcerated individuals up for success. The period after release from prison can be challenging for those returning. During this critical period, they are more likely to be unemployed, more likely to be rearrested, more likely to overdose, and more likely to die. As president, I will remove barriers that hamper reentry for formerly incarcerated people who have served their time — from the restrictions on occupational licensing, to housing, to the disenfranchisement of over 3 million returning citizens.

In order to create real law and order and real justice in our country, we need a structural reform of the system.

I’m ready to tackle this crisis head on, but it’s going to take a grassroots movement. Add your name to support this plan, and be in this fight.

Thanks for being a part of this,

Elizabeth

Beto’s already been to a gun show in Arkansas and held a 1000 person rally in Oklahoma. When Democrats show up everywhere, we win everywhere. Now, all the right people are getting nervous. And the list of people attacking Beto is growing longer. Take a look:

Beto for America

 

Beto just gave a stirring speech in Arkansas.

On the heels of tragedy in El Paso, Beto laid out how we can move forward as a country on some of the toughest challenges we face. From how we grapple with a history of racism, to how we stop losing 40,000 lives a year to gun violence.

It’s not about just one party or one people getting what they want out of our democracy. It’s about all of us coming together, identifying not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans first and foremost. We’re not going to fix problems as serious as racism or gun violence with only half measures or half the country. It’s got to be all of us together.

You have to watch this video. Then share it with friends and family, because it’s exactly the message we all need to hear.

In times like these, it’s not enough to sit on the sidelines. In a democracy like ours, it’s on all of us to make things right. That’s why, as Beto said, we need to shock the conscience of America.

Make sure to watch the speech till the end — it builds and builds as you watch. After you see it, if you know friends or family who’ve felt discouraged or disengaged by our politics, this is a good opportunity to share a speech like this from Beto. We all need a little inspiration right now.
