Some (pretty darn important) questions for Democrats

Please watch and share my latest video with MoveOn. It's a call to action for all Democrats in Congress to throw away their (very) old political playbooks.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

I don’t mean to be impertinent, but I have some (pretty darn important) questions for Senate Democrats in Washington, D.C.

And, with stakes as high as they are, I'm guessing you do, too.

Some Democrats are starting to stand up—boycotting committee hearings, joining protests, and promising to filibuster a Supreme Court nominee—but we need all Senate Democrats to catch up with the resistance in the streets and do their part in this unprecedented moment.

Please watch and share my latest video with MoveOn. It's a call to action for all Democrats in Congress to throw away their (very) old political playbooks.

Look, this is not just another conservative administration. This is not a normal president.

By and large, Democrats have to be tougher and louder and make an unprecedented ruckus. Now.

They have to fight as if our lives and the well-being of our communities depend on it.

Because they do.

Thank you for watching this call to action and then sharing it with your family and friends.

And thanks for all you do.

P.S. Please also check out an excellent piece on this very topic by MoveOn's Anna Galland and Ilya Sheyman.
