Dru –

Today, the resistance becomes real.

Our Revolution members, like me and my children, have flooded into the nation’s capital with hundreds of thousands of our allies for The Women’s March. Even more are marching in 600 places across the county.

We are here to stand up for the equality of our sisters, daughters, mothers and grandmothers. We are here to lift our voices for economic justice and racial justice. We are here to unite against hatred, discrimination, and xenophobia.

Today we remind ourselves we are the heart of the majority of voters who cast their ballots against this President and the super-majority of Americans who disapprove of his leadership.

In other words, now is the time to stand strong and push forward.

We must heed Bernie’s call to unite and stop cuts to Medicaid, Medicare and Obamacare.

We must follow in the footsteps of Georgia Democrats who have built a strong grassroots party in the heart of the Deep South and launched Georgia Resists to fight suppression with mobilization.

From Southern California to Northern Texas, rural Iowa to suburban Maryland, inner-city Chicago to small town Vermont Our Revolution meetings are brimming with activists ready to win real victories in real time for all our families.

We are ready to keep winning the fight for a $15 minimum wage. We are ready to stop fracking from coast to coast. We are already building the movement that will end college debt. We can still end mass incarceration faster than most think is possible.

But winning victories requires building power.

In our democracy there are only two types: organized money and organized people. Now the people can beat money every time, but we must be organized.

Please encourage your friends to join Our Revolution by signing up at OurRevolution.com to become part of the millions who say #NotMeUs. As our board has decided, membership in Our Revolution will always be open.

Trump’s support is sinking. Our meetings are overflowing. Trump had his day yesterday. We will have ours tomorrow.

Let’s all pull together and get it done.

Yours for victory,


Ben Jealous
