A new message from your friends at People For the American Way. *********************** Anne, It may seem like no matter how hard we work and how much we resist, progress isn’t possible and we’re powerless to save our county from being damaged in profound and irreparable ways. But that simply is not so. We are making progress, and the Resistance has been THE story of 2017. Despite various efforts to shrink and weaken Obamacare, we stopped its full repeal and saved health care for millions of Americans … and we finally saw some hard-fought wins against some of Trump’s worst judicial nominees as we closed out the year. Additionally, we’re seeing Democrats WIN in deep red state legislative districts all across the country. A Democrat will now represent ALABAMA in the US Senate, where Mitch McConnell’s majority will be shrunk to 51-49, giving us new leverage to stop unfit judicial nominees and legislative attacks. In the most important election of the year, we had a MASSIVE progressive victory when we ran the table in Virginia. And on Election Day 2017, the progressive candidates that we helped elect to state and local office in Virginia and around the country were overwhelmingly diverse and young … Could electing more progressive women, minorities, LGBTQ people, and young people be a more perfect answer to Trump Republicans’ hate and divisiveness? Yes, Trump and Pence are still in the White House, Gorsuch is on the Supreme Court, the aristocracy-creating tax scam is law, and the Republicans who control both chambers of Congress refuse to do ANYTHING to stand up to this lawless administration or defend our core American principles… But together -- and only together -- we will hold them accountable and turn the tide in 2018.

TRIPLE MATCH: ACTIVE

Anne,

It may seem like no matter how hard we work and how much we resist, progress isn’t possible and we’re powerless to save our county from being damaged in profound and irreparable ways.

But that simply is not so.

We are making progress, and the Resistance has been THE story of 2017.

Despite various efforts to shrink and weaken Obamacare, we stopped its full repeal and saved health care for millions of Americans … and we finally saw some hard-fought wins against some of Trump’s worst judicial nominees as we closed out the year.

Additionally, we’re seeing Democrats WIN in deep red state legislative districts all across the country.

A Democrat will now represent ALABAMA in the US Senate, where Mitch McConnell’s majority will be shrunk to 51-49, giving us new leverage to stop unfit judicial nominees and legislative attacks.

In the most important election of the year, we had a MASSIVE progressive victory when we ran the table in Virginia.

And on Election Day 2017, the progressive candidates that we helped elect to state and local office in Virginia and around the country were overwhelmingly diverse and young … Could electing more progressive women, minorities, LGBTQ people, and young people be a more perfect answer to Trump Republicans’ hate and divisiveness?

Yes, Trump and Pence are still in the White House, Gorsuch is on the Supreme Court, the aristocracy-creating tax scam is law, and the Republicans who control both chambers of Congress refuse to do ANYTHING to stand up to this lawless administration or defend our core American principles…

But together -- and only together -- we will hold them accountable and turn the tide in 2018.

Let’s do this -- make your year-end donation of $7 or more to renew for 2018 now and your gift will be TRIPLED thanks to a match by your fellow members.

We cannot tire. We cannot rest.

Thank you for all you do.

-- Ben Betz, Digital Advocacy Director
