The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.
This is our eleventh hour.
For far too long, in far too many places, our leaders ignored and denied the evidence.
And now, our future is in peril. Climate change is the existential threat to our way of life. I’m running for president because if we don’t act right here and right now, it’ll be too late to prevent the worst consequences.
I’m running for president not out of a sense of pessimism, but because of a deep sense of optimism. I believe in our ability to unite around a common mission to defeat climate change. I believe in our ingenuity. I believe in our passion. I believe in our remarkable capacity as a country to work towards a common goal when it matters the most.
But I know we won’t realize the change we need to see if we keep practicing our usual politics. That’s why my first pledge to you as a candidate was simple: No fossil fuel money. No corporate PACs. Just you. Because the only way we’ll defeat climate change is if we join together.
So now, I’m asking you to step up and become a founding donor of this campaign.
As Americans, this is our moment to act on climate change and to invest in a clean energy economy that will grow millions of jobs in communities across the country. This is our eleventh hour, and it’s also our hour of immense opportunity. So let’s get to work.
