This decision makes your support even more powerfully important

 
We have a real opportunity right now in a Democratic primary to build a campaign from the grassroots up. And our grassroots movement will be our big advantage.
Warren for President

When we started this presidential campaign, I saw two options for how we could run it:

  1. Focus on building a grassroots movement entirely with grassroots donors and volunteers.
 
  1. Or spend a lot time with wealthy people behind closed doors, and then hope we have enough money to buy a bunch of TV ads right before voting starts.

For me, the choice was clear. I picked option #1.

Here’s what that looks like: I’m not doing any high-dollar private fundraisers with millionaires and corporate executives.

I don’t take any corporate PAC money, or PAC money of any kind. I don’t take any Washington lobbyist money. And I’m not out sucking up to a bunch of billionaires hoping that they’re going to run a Super PAC for me.

In other words, we’re running this movement with grassroots donors and grassroots volunteers. That makes your support even more powerfully important. If you think this is the best way to run a campaign, we need you to be in this fight — can you chip in right now?
