I want to thank all of you who made a contribution or volunteered at the close of such an important quarter.
This is an amazing campaign of people, and I am so proud of all of you across this country and of what we’ve achieved together so far.
Because of you, we’ve overcome each obstacle – including the critical fundraising goal we set. We’re proving what’s possible without a dime from a single PAC, when we shut the door on lobbyists, corporations, and special interests. We’re showing what we can do when people come together from all walks of life, damning the differences, and deciding that what unites us is far stronger than what divides us.
As Amy and I prepare to return to Iowa – this time with Ulysses, Molly, and Henry for their first trip – I’m thinking of your stories and the many reasons you are part of this.
Will you let us know what inspired you to contribute to our campaign? I want to share your stories with our campaign staff and volunteers. They mean so much to us, and they power us through any tough moment.
I’m also thinking of the kids and families I met yesterday morning when I walked across the Paso del Norte bridge and into Mexico – people who came to our country seeking asylum, but who have been turned back by this administration’s unlawful and inhumane policies.
It’s on every single one of us to make things right. We must end the Remain in Mexico policy, end metering, end family separation, and end the detention of those who pose absolutely no threat. But we must go far beyond that and fix the entire system.
So I want to thank not just people who volunteered or contributed to our campaign – but all of you who turned out in the heat this weekend to protest the cruel treatment of children and the separation of families, and all of you who donated to the Diocesan Migrant & Refugee Services when we put out the call for help.
While our greatest challenges are still ahead, what we’ve done so far reminds me that together, we have the courage and the confidence to meet each of them.
I hope you’ll share your story about what inspired you to contribute so we can share it with our team. In a campaign powered entirely by people, it’s you and your stories that keep us going.
I’m honored to be running this race with you. Thanks for being part of this.
P.S. If you’re able to donate now or missed the deadline, every contribution is still a big help – especially as we turn to our work organizing in Iowa and setting our sights on what’s next to continue building this historic campaign.
