Grassroots Progress for Bernie Sanders!

When we announced our endorsement of Bernie Sanders for President last month, we said that the 2016 election could be a turning point in American democracy, if we the people can get money out of politics by putting the people back in.

Bernie has been attracting big crowds of supporters wherever he goes; he’s spoken to more than 100,000 people at live events across the country, and his grassroots campaign keeps growing. You’d have to look hard at the newspaper or television news reports to learn about that, though.

That’s why we’ve launched our “100 Door-Knocks for Bernie” project in Marin, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties in California, where we’re talking to our neighbors about why we support Bernie Sanders for President. We know that if every one of our supporters in those counties makes a commitment to knock on one hundred doors in their own neighborhood to get the word out about Bernie Sanders’ campaign, that will have a large effect on election results.

We know it, and you know it: the corporate media is not going to give Sanders the kind of press coverage his presidential campaign deserves, but together we can show that putting the people back into politics is the most powerful way to get the word out.

Can you help make a difference in California’s Primary election by supporting 100 Door-Knocks for Bernie? We’d welcome your $5, $10, or $25 donation.

It seems ironic to say this, but “getting money out of politics by putting people back in” means we must ask for donations. For our 100 Door-Knocks for Bernie project, we will need to expand our ability to assist door-knockers with accurate walk-lists and walking materials, and that costs money. Can you help support 100 Door-Knocks for Bernie by making a donation today? 

Thank you for your activism and your support,
Alice Chan and Anna Givens
