Bernie Sanders took the stage at the Democratic Convention amidst raucous applause and announced his next goal for the political revolution that fueled his historic presidential campaign

Dear MoveOn member,
Last night, Senator Bernie Sanders took the stage at the Democratic National Convention amidst raucous applause and announced his next goal for the political revolution that fueled his historic presidential campaign: "Our job now is to see [the progressive Democratic] platform implemented by a Democratic Senate, a Democratic House, and a Hillary Clinton presidency—and I am going to do everything I can to make that happen."1
Bernie left no room for doubt: Donald Trump is unfit to be president, the stakes of this election are too high to risk letting Trump take us backward. And he plainly called upon all of us, including his most enthusiastic supporters, to help elect Hillary Clinton—“based on her ideas and her leadership”—for the sake of the progressive issues his candidacy brought into the mainstream.
Van Jones has some bad news
A higher minimum wage, debt-free college for all, a public option for health care, serious work combating climate change, and a push to overturn Citizens United—those were some of the issues many of us fought for by supporting Bernie's campaign, issues which Bernie spoke about from the stage last night.
"We produced, by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party," Bernie proudly declared. And now he's committed to fighting for that platform—both in this election and in the work in the Senate beyond November.
MoveOn members provided Bernie with his biggest grassroots endorsement at a key moment in the campaign. Now MoveOn members are ready to work tirelessly alongside Bernie to defeat Donald Trump and his divisive, bullying, hateful politics—by electing Hillary Clinton as we continue to fight for Bernie's agenda and ours.
Thanks for all you do.

P.P.S. Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich says, "As the biggest independent progressive group that supported Bernie Sanders, MoveOn is uniquely poised to help turn out those of his supporters who are most likely to stay home in November." Will you chip in $5 a month to help us work from now through Election Day to make sure progressive voters turn out to defeat Trump?

Yes, I'll chip in monthly.

No, I'm sorry, I can't make a monthly donation.
