Dear MoveOn member,
As I said in my speech in response to Trump's first State of the Union address, we all have that nagging, sinking feeling—no matter your political affiliation—that what is happening in our country is not right.
We see an economy that makes corporate profits climb but fails to give workers their fair share of the reward.
A government that struggles to keep itself open.
Russia knee-deep in our democracy.
An all-out war on environmental protection and complete denial of climate change.
A Justice Department rolling back civil and voting rights by the day.
Hatred and supremacy proudly marching in our streets.
Bullets tearing through our classrooms, concerts, and congregations.
A government hell-bent on making American life a zero-sum game, where for one of us to succeed, another must lose.
But we know the truth: that the strongest, richest nation on Earth should leave no one behind.
If we want to undo the damage Trump is doing to our country, then we must end Republican control of Congress in November. So I am reaching out and asking you today to do something very important:
Please rush a $3 donation to MoveOn’s groundbreaking, grassroots mobilization campaign to end Republican control of Congress this November. For us to win big in November, the work must begin today.
It would be easy to dismiss the past year as chaos, partisanship, or politics. But it's bigger than that.
This administration isn't just targeting the laws that protect us—they are targeting the very idea that we are all worthy of protection.
For them, dignity isn’t something you're born with, but something you measure by your net worth, your celebrity, your headlines, your crowd size.
Not to mention the gender of your spouse. The country of your birth. The color of your skin. The God of your prayers.
Their record is a rebuke of our highest American ideal: the belief that we are all worthy, we are all equal, and we all count—in the eyes of our law and our leaders, our God, and our government.
Instead, this administration is callously appraising our worthiness and determining who makes the cut and who can safely be bargained away without political consequences.
It's on all of us to show them the consequences of their actions. Please, click here right now to chip in $3 to MoveOn, and together we can send an unmistakable message to Trump by ending Republican control of Congress.
So often in the past year, we've been told it's us against them. Coal miners vs. single moms. Rural communities or inner cities. The coast or the heartland.
As if the mechanic in Pittsburgh and the teacher in Tulsa and the daycare worker in Birmingham are somehow bitter rivals, rather than mutual casualties of a system forcefully rigged for those at the top.
As if the parent who lies awake terrified that their transgender son will be beaten and bullied at school is any more or less legitimate than the parent whose heart is shattered by a daughter in the grips of the opioid addiction.
What we must do in this year and in the years to come is fight for everyone—because America is not a zero-sum game that picks winners and losers. We will choose to build a better country that is more fair, more equitable, where everyone in our nation has a chance to succeed because their government fights for them.
This November, let's show the Trump administration who we are as a country. We can end Republican control of Congress if we give it our all starting now, so please click here now to chip in $3—or whatever you can afford—to give MoveOn the resources to get their bold and innovative plan off the ground as soon as possible.
Our nation is strong and resilient, and in November, we’re going to score a resounding victory for justice, equality, and a system of government that works for all of us.
–Joe Kennedy III
