I’m reaching out today to ask you to make your very first contribution to our campaign for president. I don’t mind if it’s $10, $5, or even $1: what matters most to me is that you consider making a contribution of an amount that is affordable and meaningful to you.
But before I ask, I am going to share a little bit about why our campaign is doing things differently, and why every single grassroots contribution — no matter what amount — means so much.
In the years since President Trump was elected, this administration has aligned itself with white supremacists at home and cozied up to dictators abroad, ripped babies from their mothers’ arms in a grotesque violation of their human rights, and handed huge tax cuts to corporations and the extremely wealthy while working families live paycheck to paycheck. They have derailed our fight to stop climate change and save our planet, sabotaged health care for millions of families, and imperiled a woman’s right to control her own body — all while using fear and lies to divide and distract us.
We are better than this. But we’re going to have to prove it. We’re going to have to fight for it. I’ve never backed down from a tough fight in my life, and I’m not going to start now.
I’m counting on you to join me. If you believe in our vision for America, I am calling on you to make your first contribution to our campaign today. Whether it’s $1, $5, or $25, every single grassroots donation is another vote of support for our movement.
