Dear MoveOn member,
As Donald Trump barrels toward the Republican nomination for president—and potentially toward the White House—we're forced to recognize that it may take a major campaign to do what his Republican rivals could not: stop him before it's too late.
That's why we need to hear from you.
Should MoveOn launch a major campaign to show that our country rejects Donald Trump’s hate-baiting, racism, misogyny, and violence—including, if necessary, starting a Super PAC to allow us to have the funds needed to run ads, hire organizers, reach millions of voters, and more, that would be used only for the general election? Voting starts now and closes at 9 a.m. ET (8 CT/7 MT/6 PT) this Saturday, April 2. Cast your official ballot by clicking below:
Earlier this month, MoveOn's executive directors joined leaders of civil rights, women's rights, labor, environmental, and other progressive organizations in calling for mass nonviolent mobilization to stop Donald Trump and push back against the hatred and violence unleashed by his campaign.1 Now, we're turning that letter into action by asking you, as a MoveOn member, to consider the inclusive, multifaceted campaign such a moment requires.
This work would require reaching and mobilizing new voters, supporting communities most impacted by Trump's hate-baiting, running creative ads, hiring organizers, challenging elected officials and corporate leaders who prop up Trump, educating ourselves and our neighbors about our shared history that has enabled Trump's rise, and so much more. In short, it would be a massive undertaking—and would require every asset we can bring to it, potentially including a Super PAC to allow us to ramp up quickly before it's too late.
At every key decision, MoveOn members like you drive our work together.

Again, voting will remain open until 9 a.m. ET (8 CT/7 MT/6 PT) this Saturday, April 2. All MoveOn members are receiving this email and are eligible to vote. This ballot is non-transferable and unique to you. Only your first click will be recorded, so please take care in making your choice.
We would run this campaign at the same time that we continue to organize and fight for Bernie Sanders to win the Democratic nomination, a campaign launched when MoveOn members voted overwhelmingly in January to endorse Bernie in the Democratic presidential primary. That's because MoveOn members know that Bernie is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in a general election, should Trump win the Republican nomination. And we'd continue fighting for the Supreme Court and other campaigns MoveOn members care deeply about.
Thanks for all you do.
