From Harriet Tubman to Sojourner Truth to Shirley Chisholm to Coretta Scott King to Michelle Obama to Kamala Harris, Black women have been at the forefront of progress in this country from day one.
And if you look back to earlier this month in Alabama, you'll see a clear example of what happens when Democrats mobilize in our communities. Ninety-eight percent of Black women who voted in that special Senate election voted for Doug Jones. Without them, Roy Moore would be a U.S. Senator.
While it's true that Black women support the Democratic Party in incredibly large numbers, it's also important that we bring people of all backgrounds into the fold. The only way Democrats can take back Congress in 2018 is if every single one of us gets involved.
Donate $3 before tomorrow's end-of-year fundraising deadline if you're ready to help Democrats organize nationwide in 2018.
We can't take the support of Black women for granted. We have to listen to and empower these voices every single day -- not just when there's an election coming, but all of the time.
After all, that's what the Democratic Party is all about. We are the party that opens our doors to everyone and fights on behalf of all Americans, no matter where they live or what they look like.
Everything we do between now and Election Day will impact our ability to win back control of Congress. Let's make sure Democrats have the resources to organize and win.
Chip in $3 ahead of tomorrow's end-of-year deadline to help Democrats get to work in every community, all across the country.
Best wishes to you and your loved ones heading into the new year, Mary.
U.S. Representative, California
