Friend,

My grandfather migrated from the Jim Crow South to Detroit, where he landed a union job on the assembly lines during World War II. My father grew up in a segregated mountain town in North Carolina but was able to lift himself and our family into the middle class.

For my family, and countless other workers in this country, the story was the same: if you work hard in America, America will work for you.

But today, for most people in this country, our economy is broken. While the stock market surges to record highs, middle-income families are being held back by stagnant wages and crushing debt.

Today, I’m releasing my plan to transform our economy to make it work for everyone, not just the wealthy few. Here’s how we do it:

1. Empowering workers to raise wages and improve working conditions by strengthening collective bargaining and supporting state and local efforts to protect workers.
2. Extending opportunity for all by fighting for a $15 minimum wage and overtime protections, providing paid time off when workers are sick or when they need to care for a loved one, and ensuring the ability to work without fear of discrimination or harassment.
3. Creating a fairer tax code for workers that rewards work over wealth by repealing the Trump tax cuts for the wealthiest families and largest corporations.

If you believe that we need to provide opportunity and justice for every American, add your name next to mine in supporting workers’ rights.

Saudi Arabia’s b*tch

Saudi Arabia’s b*tch

TULSI 2020

 

 

Friend—

Trump is betraying our troops.

With just one tweet he offered to place our military – my brothers in sisters in uniform – under the command of Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, the dictator of Saudi Arabia. He tweeted: “We are locked and loaded … but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!”

Watch now

Trump’s actions are a gross betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform, the American people, and our Constitution. We are not Trump’s prostitutes, and we will not be pimped out to war for the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. Watch this video and donate to help me restore a soldier’s values to the White House.

I am a young mother and a college student who successfully ran for city council at the age of 19 in Kingsburg, CA. To my knowledge, my victory made me the youngest elected official in Fresno County history. Many people dismissed my campaign because of my age, color, and gender. However, it was elected officials like Esmeralda who motivated and supported me.
 

Today, I am proud to return that support to Esmeralda as she runs for Congress.

Like most of us here in the Valley, I don’t have a lot of money to spare, but when Esmeralda told me that she was running, I immediately contributed $20 to her campaign. I believe that we need a new voice in Washington who will fight for hard-working Valley families, and I know that Esmeralda will be our voice. Esmeralda understands that for too long politicians have been beholden to special interests and failing Valley families.

Many of us – like Esmeralda’s family – despite working hard and playing by the rules, are still struggling. That’s why I know Esmeralda will put those families first by fighting to fix our broken health care system, make college affordable and rebuild our middle class.

Look, most of don’t have a lot of money to spare, but if we are going to win this, then we have to give!

I hope you will join me and contribute $5, $10, $20 or whatever amount you can afford to help Esmeralda so she can be our voice in Washington and fight for our future.

I know for a fact that the change we need in our country is possible because America’s made big, structural change before.

Warren for President

We’re fighting for big, structural change, and we’re counting on grassroots donors to make it possible. Chip in for the first time today to help hit our end of quarter goal — even $3 makes a difference.


I know for a fact that the change we need in our country is possible — because America’s made big, structural change before.

I’d like to tell you a story of how it’s happened — a story I shared last night in New York City with people like you who are ready to dream big, fight hard, and win.

Aerial view of Washington Park


We were in Washington Square Park. Not because of the arch that was behind me, or the president the square is named for. We weren’t there because of famous arches or famous men. In fact, we weren’t there because of men at all.

This past weekend at a town hall in Carson City, Nevada, a Navy veteran with stage-4 Huntington’s disease told Bernie he was struggling not just to take care of himself physically, but also with the $130,000 worth of medical bills he’s racked up.

He said he was thinking of ending his own life.

You may have seen the video… it got a lot of attention.

After the meeting, Bernie and Jane met with the man. They listened to more of his story.

This happens often — people telling Bernie about the issues that impact their lives most. That’s what presidential campaigns are about.

We ALL have issues that matter to us — some that impact us in deeply personal ways. And while Bernie can’t meet with every single supporter, we can try to get a sense of the ones that matter to you. So we are asking:

Take our short survey: tell us about the issues in this campaign that matter most to you. Whether they impact your life directly today, or just issues you are passionate about, Bernie wants to hear from you.
