Our priorities

Dear MoveOn member,

Tonight, we'll hear from President Obama. But just as important: We have already heard from you.

Tens of thousands of MoveOn members—from small towns and big cities across all 50 states—took time to participate in the MoveOn Member Priorities Survey. You shared your vision for America, and how you'd like to see MoveOn direct energy and resources in pursuing that vision.

Of course, we're already investing deeply in Run Warren Run, an ambitious campaign to urge Elizabeth Warren to run for president—elevating her vision for economic opportunity along the way. But that's not all we're going to accomplish together this year. 

So, what did we learn from the survey? 
  • Getting money out of politics, fighting for a fair economy, strengthening Social Security, combating the climate crisis, and defending Obamacare are the issues that MoveOn members most want to take action on in 2015.

  • In the coming year, MoveOn members want to focus on efforts that push President Obama and Democrats to stand strong for core values and not to back down in the face of conservative attacks.

  • MoveOn members are passionate, committed, and ready to work—but we already knew that.
If you are ready to invest in campaigning on these priorities in the year ahead, can you chip in $3 now?

Yes, I'll chip in.

All of these are critical issues—and the political climate makes our work even more important. But to be clear: We're not just rolling up our sleeves to jump into these fights—we're already in the heart of them. 

Last week, MoveOn members joined rallies calling on the president to reject the Keystone XL pipeline. This week, members are part of a push to collect five million signatures calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. Next week, members will host hundreds of Run Warren Run house parties to urge Elizabeth Warren—a loud, proud champion for a fairer economy—to bring her clear vision and effective leadership to the presidential race.

All along the way, and in the months ahead, we'll be pushing President Obama and Democrats to stand strong as we fight for the priorities of MoveOn members across America.

Help fund the fight—chip in $3 now.

Yes, count me in for the fights ahead!

We've seen some real progress over the past six years of the Obama Administration, and we've also seen areas where we've been frustrated by inaction. Tonight's speech will tell us what the president's priorities are for the next year—but we already know our priorities. And while we measure his State of the Union address against the issues that matter most to us, let us also measure our own commitment to being part of the solution by fighting—with our votes, voices, and wallets—for the priorities we hold dear.

Are you ready to pitch in $3 to fight the good fight?

Yes, I'm in.

Thanks for all you do.

Anna, Erica, Jo, Matt, and the rest of the team
