Democrats/Join us.

I’m Mayor Barrett, and I’m incredibly thrilled to welcome all of America to the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee next year!

Next July will be the first time in our history that we’ll host a major party’s convention, and as a city, we could not be more proud of this opportunity to show America what our great city has to offer, and what makes us all proud to call ourselves Milwaukeeans.

I see the City of Milwaukee as a microcosm of our nation. We’re working class people with working class roots who represent diverse backgrounds and histories. This community is proof that when Democrats come together and put in the hard work it takes to win elections up and down the ticket, the lives of everyday people and families are better off for it.

The Democratic Party has a tremendous amount of work ahead of us to prepare for 2020. From planning the convention here on the ground, to hosting fair and transparent debates, to building the strong party infrastructure it’ll take to win the White House and seats nationwide, our party truly can’t get this done without the early support of grassroots Democrats like you. The fight for 2020 will be the fight of our lifetimes, Michael, which is why I’m asking you to join this powerful movement to elect a Democratic president and win seats in all 50 states next year.

While the convention may still be a year away, the time for all of us to get serious about building a strong DNC — one capable of beating Trump and the RNC’s fundraising and organizing machine — is already upon us.

Republicans witnessed what this grassroots team of Democrats is capable of last November, and you can bet they’ll fight even harder to hold onto their majorities this time around. They’ve shown us they’re willing to go to any length necessary to keep Trump in the White House, which is why investing in crucial party infrastructure earlier in the cycle than ever before is the only way we’ll be able to give our eventual Democratic nominee a fighting chance.

The DNC is the sole party committee responsible for electing a Democrat to the White House and winning seats up and down the ticket next year. The single most effective way to support all Democrats — including whoever becomes our Democratic nominee for president in Milwaukee next July — is by making a donation to the Democratic Party right now.

Let’s do this!

Mayor of Milwaukee, Wisconsin

P.S. When people ask me, “Tom, how’s Milwaukee doing?” I tell them that we are fighting back. We’re fighting hard for working families and for our progressive values by electing Democrats up and down the ticket.
