Dear MoveOn member,
The race for 2020 has begun. Just this month, a half-dozen candidates have tossed their hat in the Democratic primary by announcing candidacies or exploratory committees, with a dozen more waiting in the wings. Even more exciting: They are already sketching out bold, ambitious agendas to promote ideas that could transform our economy, climate, justice system, and so much more.
In our membership-wide straw poll and survey in December, MoveOn members overwhelmingly agreed that candidates should inspire us with a bold progressive agenda—which is why MoveOn is launching a series of events where we'll challenge presidential hopefuls to compel us with their big ideas.
Now, we need your help to make sure these events surface the ideas and voices that excite MoveOn members the most.
Can you take three minutes to participate in our planning survey for the Big Ideas series? We're eager to learn which potential and declared candidates you're most excited to hear pitch a bold, new, progressive idea.
The series of high-profile events, which will take place over the next few months, will be a participatory forum for big ideas. Historically, it's been challenging for candidates of color, women, and LGBTQ candidates to prove their "viability" to mainstream media, but we need their voices and perspectives in this debate. And we need to make sure candidates who share values and aspirations with MoveOn members, have fought alongside us in key moments, and who energize us are bringing those qualities to the race.
The Big Ideas series will make space for these voices and more to be heard. Which is why we're hoping you'll share with us your thoughts on which 2020 hopefuls will most inspire you with their big, bold ideas.
Thanks for all you do.
