Last week, I appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Stephen asked me what I thought about our current president declaring a state of emergency to secure funding for his wall.
As a mayor, I know a thing or two about emergencies and how they impact our communities. Climate change is a national emergency. Gun violence is a national emergency. This is a political disgrace.
Watch the full interview, and if you can, please chip in $5 to invest in a different type of vision for our country.
The DNC recently announced that one of the primary metrics needed to qualify for the first candidate debate will be the number of individual donors who have invested. A candidate will need 65,000 donors in order to make it to the debate stage.
Right now, as an exploratory committee, we are closely tracking our number of individual donors. We have donors from all 50 states (and DC, too!), and we are proud of our small-dollar network of support, but we need to step it up.
This is not an exaggeration: We literally cannot do this without you.
No matter how much you can give, please help us grow our organizational strength by making a contribution right now:
Thanks for your continued excitement about our exploratory committee.
