MoveOn members began 2019 with new hope for our future as a new Congress was sworn in—the most diverse House of Representatives in history, with many progressive champions MoveOn members played pivotal roles in electing. And we ended the year with the impeachment of Donald Trump—a critical achievement to help check his administration’s rampant abuses of power, even as his lawlessness and attacks on so many communities continue.
We’ll remember 2019 as a year that funneled energy of the resistance into building a stronger MoveOn and progressive movement, fighting Trump and the right-wing GOP agenda in Washington and across the country, and laying the groundwork to win in 2020.
And throughout this impactful year against this tumultuous political landscape, MoveOn members continued to have impact as our organizations grew and changed. With gratitude we said farewell to our co-executive directors, Anna Galland and Ilya Sheyman, and welcomed new leadership: Rahna Epting, our new executive director, who deep experience in organizing, good government advocacy and labor.
