Playing catch up here today. Received this e-mail this week from Democracy For America:
As you may have noticed, DFA’s first four endorsements of the 2021 election cycle are all progressive black women.
That is not by accident.
Jennifer Caroll Foy, Maya Wiley, Nina Turner, and Tishaura Jones embody our mission of electing powerful leaders representing the New American Majority of Black, brown, and white progressives.
I know with the attack on our country last week that it may seem hard to think about anything else, but rest assured we can hold Trump and Republicans accountable, move the Biden/Harris promise of change forward, and elect these incredible women to office nationwide all at the same time.
Jennifer, Maya, Nina, and Tishaura’s campaigns are depending on the support of Democracy for America to win because early financial support gives them the resources to start NOW in building the coalition they’ll need from now until Election Day. Please contribute $21 right now and get 2021 started on the path to victory for progressives nationwide.
With Democrats set to take control of the White House and Senate next week, we must show that we can walk and chew gum at the same time.
If we’re going to make progress on the biggest issues, things like bringing an end to the pandemic, protecting and strengthening our democracy, and solving climate change, we need to be able to accomplish multiple things at once.
That includes continuing the hard work of electing progressive Black women to office. All of these incredible women have spent years on the frontlines of some of the biggest fights, and each has delivered real results for working people.
Georgia proved once again what the data has been telling us for years: Black women have been there for Democrats, year after year, election after election. Now, it’s up to us at DFA, working with our grassroots movement nationwide, to make sure that when powerful progressive Black women run, Democrats are there for them.
Thanks for powering our work to elect these powerful, progressive Black women.
With your support, we’ve won elections at the local, state, and federal levels making real change for people across this country. Our strategy works and we’re not stopping now.
Thank you for everything you’re doing to help us take it to the next level in 2021!
