On Monday night, after a big event in New York, we took about 4,000 selfies. It took about four hours to get through everyone.
Afterwards, reporters kept asking if we would stop the photo lines. They said surely we’d have to change how we run our town halls and events as our movement continues to grow.
But I said no.
You see, it’s not just about the pictures. It’s about having face-to-face, one-on-one conversations with thousands of people. Yeah, it took a while. I was there for four hours. But so was the last guy in line.
And after talking to 4,000 people in that line, you know the most common word I heard on Monday? Hope.
People said that they know what’s broken in our country, but they also know that we have a plan to fix it — and they believe in our power to make it happen.
We’re going to do this. We’re going to make Washington work for everyone, not just a thinner and thinner slice at the top.
But to make the big, structural change we need, it’s going to take a massive movement of millions of people pushing from the outside, and that takes real resources.
That’s why I spend time with our grassroots movement, and that’s why I have to ask: Can you pitch in to help grow our campaign? $3 or whatever you can contribute would make a powerfully important difference right now, especially with the FEC fundraising deadline right around the corner.
