Dear MoveOn member,
I'm writing to tell you about one of the most inspiring candidates running anywhere in the country in 2018. Her name is Stacey Abrams.
Stacey is running for governor of Georgia, and when she wins, she'll be the first Black woman ever to be a governor in America. The first ever.
Stacey is a passionate, progressive leader who will be a tireless advocate for the people of Georgia and a much-needed voice in our national conversation.
She has spent her life standing up to injustice and fighting to make life better for everyone around her. And now it is our turn to do the same for her. Will you chip in now to support Stacey's campaign for governor?
Stacey was the minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, which made her the first woman to lead a party in the state's legislature and the first Black person to lead a party in the Georgia House. She founded the New Georgia Project, which registered more than 200,000 voters of color between 2014 and 2016 and is on track to register an earthshaking 800,000 by 2024. And she runs a small business that helps other small businesses grow.
When MoveOn asked its members in Georgia whether to endorse in the governor's race, 82.5% said to support Stacey, and it is easy to see why.
She is an inspiration, and I am honored to stand with her.
And here's the thing: Shifting demographics, engaged Black voters, and Donald Trump's unpopularity make this a race Stacey can win—with our help.
So much is on the line in terms of our direction as a country, Eddie. Will you chip in $3—or whatever you can afford—to help out?
I feel this in my heart: Stacey is the embodiment of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy.
As Dr. King said, it's not just the vitriolic words and violent actions of bad people that are responsible for where we are as a country. It's also the appalling silence and inaction of good people.
For Stacey to ascend to where our country needs her to be, we must wake up the conscience of good people. Because the opposite of justice isn't injustice; it's inaction and silence.
We need right now to create momentum—and that starts with you, Eddie.
Thanks for all you do.
