Wow -- what an incredible year this has been.
Despite all of the chaos and distractions of the current administration, we have seen the power of grassroots organizing in ways not seen for generations: the rise of popular and bold ideas like Medicare For All (which I lead in the House), the Green New Deal, and of course, the #WeThePeopleAmendment -- the fundamental constitutional reform that would give us the democratic power we need to win in ALL of these fights.
I am so proud to be working with Move to Amend as the lead sponsor of the We the People Amendment, and grateful to my 66 colleagues in Congress who are behind me in this fight!
What I admire most about Move to Amend is that they are truly grassroots -- the real deal. Please make an end of year donation today, so this movement can head into 2020 strong.
For the past decade, organizers and volunteers around the United States have been laying the groundwork for today’s moment -- public education, gathering hundreds of thousands of petition signatures, passing many hundreds of local/state resolutions and ballot measures, securing hundreds of organizational endorsements, and lobbying and organizing their representatives and senators in Congress.
And as a result, the #WeThePeopleAmendment will be in BOTH houses, the House and the Senate, in 2020 -- an incredible testament to the competency and persistence of this movement!
Not only is their ground-up organizing strategy strong and effective, but they stay true to their values in fundraising. They don’t take money from big foundations, or anyone who might expect to influence the organization with their funding. No -- this movement is powered by YOU. The massive progress of this campaign has been entirely funded by grassroots support -- the average donation is only $40!
But taking this path is risky. It’s hard to predict too far into the future when you can’t predict where the money is going to come from. Please make an end of year donation today so that Move to Amend and I can hit the ground running in 2020.
Thank you for your support,
Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (WA-7)
