Dear MoveOn member,
This is Senator Al Franken, and I'm writing to tell you that what you are doing is working.
The phone calls, the marches, the protests, the town hall meetings … It's all having a huge impact.
My Republican colleagues in Congress put on a brave face, but I work with them every day, and I can tell that they know what's happening outside of Washington. And they're worried. That's why their first attempt at Trumpcare went down so fast, and why no significant legislation will get passed in Trump's first 100 days.
But there are so many more fights to come. Stopping Trump's tax breaks for rich people like himself. Standing up to Jeff Sessions' deportation force. Resisting attacks on Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid—and more attacks on the Affordable Care Act. Protecting the environment.
I'm counting on you to keep marching, and protesting, and calling—and MoveOn will help amplify those calls and channel that energy as effectively as any group I know. Will you chip in $5 a month to MoveOn to help keep the resistance strong for the next four years?
I know that sometimes it seems like Washington, D.C., is so far away that your voices aren't being heard.
But I guarantee you that that's not true.
It started with the Women's March on Washington the day after the inauguration—a protest march that dwarfed the inauguration itself. Since then, the phones have been ringing off the hook.
At this point, Republicans are so terrified of their constituents that some won't even face them—a few have even run out of town hall meetings. You've probably seen the videos!
Even Trump is starting to crack, flip-flopping on campaign promises left and right, while blaming his staff for every screw-up.
I pledge to you that I will keep fighting in Washington, but let's be honest with ourselves: Republicans control everything. The House, Senate, and White House.
My fellow Democratic senators and I can't stop them alone. We need your help. We need you to keep calling, protesting, and marching. We need the Republicans (and Democrats, too) to hear what their constituents really think!
That's why I'm asking you to sign up to donate $5 a month to MoveOn. MoveOn's organizers are some of the best in the business, and MoveOn will put your money to work where it's needed most. What do you say? Are you in?
Thanks for all you do.
Want to support MoveOn's work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it MoveOn needs your ongoing support, now more than ever. Will you stand with MoveOn?
