BREAKING: Senate health care vote suspended
Friends, Thank you. Because of you and the thousands of calls made that flooded the offices of Senators Susan Collins, Dean Heller, and others, Mitch McConnell just announced that the Senate will delay their vote on the disastrous American Health Care Act until after the July recess. We've bought ourselves some time to stop this bill for good. Now Republican senators have to go home to explain why they're trying to rip health care away from 22 million. We must remain vigilant and protect health care for millions of Americans. Please donate any amount to Our Revolution to help fuel our efforts to stop this terrible health care bill. DONATE » secure.actblue.com/donate/or-healthcare The tide is turning in our favor but there's no telling how abruptly the GOP will turn around and try to force a vote on health care. It's clear that our model of organizing is working. Our Revolution and other grassroots organizations are taking back power from Republican legislators through direct actions, phone calls, and the electoral power we're building across the country. Lives are on the line in the debate over our health care. Make a contribution of any amount today to help us organize for Medicare for All. DONATE » secure.actblue.com/donate/or-healthcare This is a great victory. The political revolution is winning, and that's all thanks to your efforts and support. Thank you. In solidarity, Shannon Jackson Executive Director Our Revolution

What Trump's terrible #s mean for us >>
Patricia, Trump's disapproval rating hit a historic high: 60% of Americans disapproved of Donald Trump. [Gallup, 6/12/17] If his popularity plummets further, it could mean flipping the House and making gains in the Senate next year. We HAVE to be prepared.

EMILY's List resistance supporter record for Patricia
Patricia, Since Election Day, we've seen a record number of new donors, been contacted by nearly 15,000 women who want to run for office, and launched a brand-new program to support them. The grassroots movement we are building is strong. Now we have to prove we're in it for the long haul. It takes a significant amount of resources to continue training the women who want to run and to support our women up for re-election next year. That's why hitting our $250,000 End-of-Quarter goal is so important. I've checked our records since Election Day and so many people have stepped up to help. Now I'm asking everyone to do a little more. Here are our records associated with this exact email address: EMILY's List Resistance Donor Status: Not yet Suggested action: Donate $3 to help elect pro-choice Democratic women: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170626_email_EOQ I want us to be able to support as many women as possible in key races this year and next year, but doing that means hitting our goals. Thanks to the outpouring of enthusiasm from this community, we've been able to help more women than ever before. From training thousands of women to run for office to flipping Republican-held House seats to protecting our nine Senate women up for re-election next year, this community has a lot of races it can impact.

[Polls] Tough Senate races
Patricia, 3 of our Senate women up for re-election are running in states Trump won last year. But take a look at his approval ratings: In Michigan where Debbie Stabenow is up: 61% disapprove of Trump [EPIC MRA, 5/24/17] In Wisconsin where Tammy Baldwin is up: 47% disapprove of Trump [Marquette Law School, 3/22/17] In Missouri where Claire McCaskill is up: 43% disapprove of Trump [Remington Research, 2/07/17] Trump's sinking popularity is a good sign for our women, but they're still facing tough races.

NAFTA has hollowed out the middle class
Friends, Thanks to your efforts we helped defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Now we need your help again as the Trump administration seeks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. NAFTA and trade deals like it have been disastrous for workers and the environment. In the last several decades, American manufacturing has plummeted, and good paying jobs have been outsourced. Working families in our trading partners have similarly been displaced and disadvantaged by the same multi national corporations. We need fair trade that works for citizens and the environment! This Tuesday, I will join other labor, environmental and trade activists as we rally in DC calling for fair renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Deal (NAFTA). Add your name to the petition we will deliver to the U.S. Trade Representative calling for a transparent process that benefits workers, not corporations. Rather than defending our manufacturing jobs and raising living standards for working families, NAFTA made it easier for large multinational corporations to move jobs out, and avoid regulations that protect workers and the environment. Our trade deals have favored Wall Street and the largest corporations for far too long. We need a radical reimagining of what our trade policies are set to accomplish, and that begins with NAFTA. Please sign our petition calling for a renegotiation that benefits American workers, not Wall Street and multinational corporations. Trade deals can be good for our economy, our workers, and the workers in our trading partners. Together, we can fight to make NAFTA the trade deal it should be: one where workers are treated fairly, the environment is treated with respect, and corporations play by our rules, not their own. Thank you for taking this bold stand for workers everywhere. In Solidarity, Larry Cohen Board Chair Our Revolution SIGN THE PETITION >>>>>> go.ourrevolution.com/page/s/nafta-petition

I am going back on the road
Sisters and Brothers - This is literally insane. Senate Republicans are talking about passing a bill that impacts 1/6 of the American economy, that touches every single American family and they refuse to hold any hearings or public debate on their bill. They've kept it secret, kept it hidden, and now at the last possible second are going to rush it before the U.S. Senate to get a vote. It's a disgrace. They call it a health care bill, but how can it be a health care bill when it throws 23 million people off of insurance, slashes Medicaid, and defunds Planned Parenthood? God knows what the implication of this legislation will be on our children, the elderly, and those with chronic illness. Sometimes you have a hard time understanding what kind of world these guys are living in. Time is running out. It is up to all of us to act in an unprecedented way. We have to think big and do everything humanly possible to make sure this horrendous piece of legislation does not become law. So this week, I am going back on the road to visit states where there are Republican Senators who can and should vote to stop this moral abomination. I will be in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia on Saturday and Sunday. I will be talking about how unspeakable it would be to throw millions people off of health insurance and in the same bill give tax breaks to the rich and multinational corporations. We will share the stories of people who will be impacted by this bill. But I will also be asking why is it that the United States is the only major country on earth that does not guarantee health care to all of its people as a right? I will be asking why we pay far more, per capita, than any other nation for health care with worse outcomes and the highest prices for prescription drugs. And I will be discussing the Medicare-for-all, single-payer legislation that I will soon be introducing in the United States Senate. But I cannot do it alone. I need your help. Please make a $27 donation to help fund my tour where we will bring people together to stop the Republican campaign to take away health care from 23 million people in order to give a tax cut to the richest among us. secure.actblue.com/donate/health-care-tour People who cannot afford health care do not deserve to die, but that is what will happen if this bill passes. If there are rallies in your area, please attend them. Please work with me to revitalize American democracy and advance our political revolution. Thank you for your continued support.

Georgia on our minds
Friends, Money shouldn't be the end-all-be-all in deciding who represents us in Congress or what policies govern our country. Yet, just this week we not only finished one of the most expensive Congressional elections in history, topping out at more than $55 million, we also finally saw the Republican's "health care" bill which drops millions from our health care system to give tax breaks to the ultra wealthy. Our Revolution groups across the country are actively fighting against the influence of money in politics. Our efforts have propelled progressive candidates backed by people, not corporate money, to victory in Philadelphia, New York, California, Iowa, and communities across the country. Together we are fighting for the issues that will benefit all, not just a lucky few. These races and issue campaigns are just the beginning of a political revolution that puts people over profits. Now, our fight heads to the Senate as they consider a cruel plan that would kick more than 23 million people off of their current health care plans to give tax breaks to the very rich. We saw an example of this heartlessness yesterday when Capitol Police dragged away protesters in wheelchairs out of the U.S. Capitol for voicing their opposition to this cruel bill. Thank you for being active in this fight. This week alone, the Revolution flooded the telephone lines of the Senate with more than 7,200 calls in opposition to the treacherous health care plan. But, the fight is far from over. We need your support to stop the Senate attack on health care and put our stake in the ground for Medicare for All. Please make a $5 contribution to Our Revolution today to help us fight back against the Republican plan to destroy our health care system. DONATE » secure.actblue.com/donate/or-healthcare Billions of dollars from the wealthiest people in this country are flooding the political process and working Americans are losing out. It's clear that our system is broken when a health care bill would end access to maternity and mental health care but give billions to the very rich. The need for real campaign finance reform affects every aspect of our political process including how we fix our health care system. Our Revolution is organizing in many capacities, but putting the needs of every day people will always come first. We need your support to fight back against the Senate's health care plan and give a voice to every day people. Please chip in $5 to Our Revolution and help us continue the political revolution together. DONATE » secure.actblue.com/donate/or-healthcare Thank you for fighting for the progressive values we all believe in. Now is the time for us to come together and stop this unjust assault on the American people. In solidarity, Shannon Jackson Executive Director Our Revolution

The Senate just released their repeal bill
Senate Republicans just released their draft bill to repeal health care for 23 million Americans, and as we expected the cuts will be devastating. Maternity care, emergency services, and mental health treatment will be slashed. Our lives depend on our health care. Please call your senator and tell them to stop the so-called American Health Care Act in its tracks. We are the only thing standing in the way of the worst, most deadly piece of legislation in our lifetimes. Call your senator and help stop this repeal. CALL MY SENATOR » go.ourrevolution.com/page/content/stop-ahca/ --Shannon Friends, Republicans in the Senate want to keep the American people in limbo by keeping their version of the American Health Care Act secret. Right now, Mitch McConnell and his Senate colleagues are putting together a bill that could force people to go without necessary health care in order to give huge tax breaks to the insurance industry. We deserve to know how much the Republican plan will increase our premiums, deductibles, and copayments, how many people will lose coverage, and what impact the $800 billion cut to Medicaid will have on those suffering from the ongoing opioid epidemic. We demand health care for those who lack coverage at this very moment, and the ones who might lose coverage due to pre-existing conditions. The House passed their version of the so-called American Health Care Act without a score from the CBO, but we now know that 23 million people will lose coverage if it passes. That's not to mention the millions more who will be priced out of affording prescriptions and other vital components of health care, all so the very wealthiest can receive yet another tax cut. Call your senator today and tell them to stop the American Health Care Act. We need to start over with a plan that covers everybody. CALL MY SENATOR » go.ourrevolution.com/page/content/stop-ahca/ We are fighting for universal coverage under a Medicare for All, single payer system that cuts the insurance industry out of the equation. In a single payer system, the monthly premium is the only time the patient is charged.

It's time for the United States to join the UK, Canada, France, and every other major country--all of which guarantee healthcare as a right to all of their people. Republicans in the Senate are beholden to the very industries that they are attempting to regulate. As a result, our health care access is in the hands of corporations who are looking to cash out every time a patient needs prenatal care, chemotherapy, and any other treatment.

Why your statehouse matters, Patricia
Patricia, The Trump administration is determined to make contraception expensive and inaccessible, but our women at the state and local level are resisting. Last year, we flipped the Nevada state legislature from red to blue and swept a slate of pro-choice Democratic women into office. Now, those victories are paying dividends. Nevada's governor just signed into law legislation to protect and expand access to birth control -- and the bill's chief architects were two EMILY's List women, Assemblywoman Teresa Benitez-Thompson and State Sen. Julia Ratti. Thanks to their work, Nevada women will soon be able to pick up 12 months of birth control at a time, helping to reduce gaps between usage and thus reducing unplanned pregnancies. Donate to support pro-choice Democratic women at the state and local level as they form a firewall against Trump's attacks on women's health care: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170619_email_ProactiveStateWomen Recently, a Trump proposal leaked that would let more employers decide if workers can access birth control. It's an outrageous, blatant attack on women. That's why EMILY's List women around the country, like Teresa and Julia, have been taking proactive steps to protect our health care. In Oregon, State Sen. Laurie Monnes Anderson is moving a bill that would protect no-copay birth control and require health insurers to cover a full range of well-woman care including prenatal care, breastfeeding support, STI testing, and abortion care. And in New Mexico, State Rep. Debbie Armstrong sponsored a bill to make the birth control mandate the law of the land in her state, regardless of whether Trump overturns the rule or not. THIS is the kind of take-charge action we get if we have pro-choice Democratic women at every level of government.

The latest
Gov. John Kasich will join Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on CNN's 'Anderson Cooper 360' at 8PM ET on Monday for a joint discussion about the bipartisan work they're doing to provide guidance on the healthcare debate Unity, to all the dads out there, our team is wishing you an enjoyable and memorable Happy Father's Day! Upcoming Interview: Gov. John Kasich will join Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on CNN's 'Anderson Cooper 360' at 8PM ET on Monday for a joint discussion about the bipartisan work they're doing to provide guidance on the healthcare debate. The Latest News: Gov. Kasich has been working with a bi-partisan group of governors to find a balanced and sustainable approach to health care reform. This week, he joined six other governors - Democrats and Republicans - in sending a letter to Senate leadership to lay out some key principles to restore stability to our nation's health insurance system. Throughout his career, Gov. Kasich learned that meaningful change is best approached by finding common ground in a bipartisan fashion. A true and lasting fix of our health care dilemma must be accomplished in a way that brings us together, not by replacing one divisive wedge with another. Read More: Washington Post: Distinguished Pols of the Week Also last week, in recognition of the work Gov. Kasich has done to lift up our most vulnerable citizens - especially the drug addicted, mentally ill and working-poor, Gov. Kasich was inducted into the Ohio Hospital Association's Hall of Fame. In case you missed the exciting news, Gov. Kasich joined UnitedHealth Group in Dublin, OH last week to announce their plans to bring 700 jobs to central Ohio!

The people who draw the maps
Patricia, Here's some real talk that may surprise you: Republicans don't hold a majority in the House because they're more popular. They have a majority because they've distorted congressional districts to make SURE they win. They carve up states into bizarrely shaped districts to contain Democratic voters and make districts easier for Republicans to win. This process, called gerrymandering, has resulted in more Republicans winning seats in Congress and state legislatures. Once elected, they pass a bunch of laws that make it harder to vote, further blocking Democratic-leaning voters from electing officials who actually share their values. This entire situation is fundamentally undemocratic. But here's the good news: After 2020, states get to redraw these districts, and this time, we can help make sure our votes are protected. Donate $3 to help elect pro-choice Democratic women who will put a stop to GOP gerrymandering and restore the rights of Democratic voters: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170618_email_Gerrymander Here's why electing pro-choice Democratic women NOW is important: If we make gains in state legislatures and governors' offices in 2018, those are the folks who will be sitting at the tables that draw district maps in 2020. The GOP only got this leg up in the first place because they won so many races in 2010. They quickly got to work making sure that they'd hold their majorities for the next decade, and it's been an uphill climb for Democratic candidates ever since. Stopping anti-choice, anti-woman, and anti-family legislation doesn't just mean backing the right candidates. We also have to fix the lopsided field that makes it easier for Republicans to win and disempowers Democratic voters at the same time. NOW is the time to get to work. Donate $3 to elect pro-choice Democratic women as state legislators and governors so they can put a stop to the GOP's manipulation of our democracy: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170618_email_Gerrymander Thanks, Jenna Kruse Vice President of Research, EMILY's List

23 million Americans would be impacted >>
Patricia, I am really outraged over this. Talk of passing Trumpcare is back -- and this time it's coming from behind closed doors in the Senate where 13 men are writing the bill in secret without a woman even present. EMILY's List women should be in that room, fighting for the 23 million people who would lose health insurance under Trumpcare and every single one of us who could pay higher premiums, have our coverage reduced, or be negatively affected in any way by this bill. Make sure women always have a seat when health care's on the table. Donate now to keep our women in the Senate and send them reinforcements next year: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170617_email_SenateAHCA Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Republican colleagues could strip health care from millions of people, scrap the policy that provides coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, and gut coverage for women's health services -- including funding for Planned Parenthood. These are the people who are supposed to be representing our best interests and holding Trump accountable. Instead, they've shut out the public and their fellow senators from the process in order to kowtow to Trump. It's shameful. The reason they're doing it is simple: Republicans are scared. They know Trumpcare's going to be unpopular, and our elected women have been the first to say so. Whether it's Claire McCaskill demanding a public hearing or Kamala Harris defending why Americans need accessible health care -- we can rely on EMILY's List women. Nine of the 15 EMILY's List senators are up for re-election next year. Without them, Mitch McConnell's voice is a lot louder, and President Trump's influence is a LOT stronger. Donate to re-elect them and restore balance to the Senate: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170617_email_SenateAHCA Thank you, Leila McDowell Vice President of Communications, EMILY's List

Week 21: Love Of Country
Make America Great Again Friend, We all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified, working together for the common good. We remain united as we work together for a safer America. We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country. We pray for Congressman Scalise, his family, and all those affected by this week's inexplicable assault to democracy. Praying For A Swift Recovery Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman despite sustaining gunshot wounds during a brutal assault. President Trump is grateful for their heroism and praying for the swift recovery of all victims. Make America Great Again Ensuring Our Veterans Receive The Care They Deserve A bill to improve the Department of Veteran Affairs has passed Congress and will now go to President Trump to sign into law. President Trump is committed to ensuring our veterans have access to the care, services, and benefits they have earned. To achieve this goal, it is critical that employees of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are held to the highest performance standards, and that they are accountable when those standards are not met. With the Department of Veteran Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Act accountability, at the VA will be enhanced and the department will be provided tools that it needs to improve the care our veterans receive. Make America Great Again Honoring The Symbol That Reminds Us We Are One Nation Under God On Flag Day, we honor the symbol that reminds us that we are one Nation under God, united in our pursuit of liberty and justice for all. On June 14th, we celebrated and recognized this day in 1777 when the Continental Congress formally adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the Republic. “I am blessed to have shared my birthday with the Star Spangled Banner and the U.S. Army for 71 years now. Again, on Flag Day, I am deeply grateful to live under the red, white, and blue, and all for which it stands,” said President Trump. Make America Great Again Making America Great Again President Trump held his first full Cabinet meeting since being elected this week. In the meeting, President Trump discussed healthcare reform, tax reform, infrastructure legislation, defeating ISIS and much more with his team. "When I ran, it was ‘Make America Great Again,' and that's what we're doing. Believe me," the president said. "We're doing it and we're doing it at a much faster pace than anyone thought." Make America Great Again Earn While You Learn During the campaign, President Trump talked about the importance of vocational training. That’s why this week, President Trump has signed an executive order to expand apprenticeships and vocational training to help all Americans find a rewarding career, earn a great living, and support themselves and their families. Teaching young people skills, crafts, and trades are vital to our economy and our success as a country. America must not only teach, but celebrate the skilled laborers that produce and maintain the world’s greatest machines, buildings, products and infrastructure. Make America Great Again Fighting For Freedom President Trump took a trip to Florida to announce a new policy on Cuba that will undo Obama’s one-sided deal as President and will begin strictly enforcing US law. The new policy will not lift sanctions on the Cuban regime until all political prisoners are free, freedoms of assembly and expression are respected, all political parties are legalized, and free and internationally supervised elections are scheduled. President Trump’s action bypasses the military and the government to help the Cuban people themselves form businesses and pursue much better lives. Make America Great Again Congressman Scalise - America is praying for you and all of the victims of this terrible shooting. Please take a moment today to cherish those you love, and always remember those who serve and keep us safe. Thank you for your continued support, Team Trump-Pence VISIT OUR STORE CONTRIBUTE

Let's talk about our movement
Friends, It was great seeing many of you last weekend at the People's Summit in Chicago. Still more of you tuned in to watch Bernie's speech from home, or got out the vote for Tom Perriello and our progressive slate of candidates running in the Virginia primary. Every one of you made a difference, and it is when we come together that we are strong. Working as one united movement is precisely what we must do going forward. Our Revolution has four main planks that contribute to our work: We unify to organize and build local power Cultivate, nominate, and support electoral candidates and ballot initiatives Work collectively around national issue campaigns Work inside and outside political parties to build power In order to put our progressive values into practice, each plank of this work is vital. There are phenomenal candidates running for school board, city council, and county commissioner, but it's only through a grassroots infrastructure that we can effectively identify, support, and advocate on their behalf. The same is true for ballot initiatives--groups that can organize, collect petitions, and pass them with voter support hinge on the work we do together. Each local group is autonomous in how they choose to engage in the above issues, but most importantly: we are all growing this movement together. We're fighting for national issues like Medicare for All, comprehensive immigration reform, and a $15 minimum wage. And while only a few years ago people would have called us crazy for trying, these causes all now enjoy the support of the majority of the American people. There are hundreds of Our Revolution local groups active across the states, in Puerto Rico, and internationally. We're working towards our common goal of representation for the many, not the few. And though we've only been active in an official capacity for a few months, the hard work that you've put in laid the foundation for the victories that we've achieved together. Please visit our interactive map to find a local group near you, or start one of your own. VISIT THE MAP » ourrevolution.com/groups/ We're looking forward to what the future holds.

Georgia's rising star could be governor >>
Patricia, Moments after Stacey Abrams announced she was running for governor of Georgia, we endorsed her. It's not hard to see why: Stacey is a tour-de-force who puts working families first. She's a proven dealmaker, progressive champion, and tireless civil rights advocate. That's why she was the first ever recipient of our Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star Award in 2014, and we're so proud to stand with her as she takes on this next fight. Donate $3 to support Stacey's run for Georgia governor. 100% of your donation will go directly to her campaign: www.emilyslist.org/donate/candidate/stacey-abrams-18 Stacey has a strong history of fighting for women and families in Georgia, starting with her election to the Georgia House in 2006. In 2010, she made history as the first woman to lead either party in the Georgia General Assembly. In that time, Stacey's worked to increase access to affordable quality health care, championed legislation to keep kids out of foster care, and held town halls across the state to listen to the people she serves. And she's on track to make quite a bit of history too: Georgia has never had a woman or a person of color serve as governor. And no state in the entire COUNTRY has ever elected an African American woman governor. It's time to change that. Governors have a crucial ability to protect the people they serve. At a time when President Trump's election has emboldened extremist Republicans in state legislatures to attack the rights of women and communities of color, we need Stacey to protect vulnerable Georgians from whatever they try next. Help get her campaign off to the strongest possible start. Make a $3 donation, and 100% of your contribution will go straight to Stacey: www.emilyslist.org/donate/candidate/stacey-abrams-18 Thank you, Stephanie Schriock President, EMILY's List

How the resistance fared on Virginia ballots Tuesday night >>
Patricia, Exciting news in from Virginia: In Tuesday's primary, five of our women running in state legislative races won their competitive primaries: Jennifer Carroll Foy (HD-02), Danica Roem (HD-13), Kelly Fowler (HD-21), Hala Ayala (HD-51), and Delores McQuinn (HD-70). Our other three women are already in general election mode: Wendy Gooditis (HD-10) and Cheryl Turpin (HD-85), who will be taking on Republican incumbents, and Kathleen Murphy (HD-34), a first-term incumbent in a high-priority seat we must protect. Now that these women have won Virginia Democrats' support, their next big test will be winning over voters in the general election in November. Let's get them off to the strongest start possible. Donate $3 now to help pro-choice Democratic women make inroads in the Virginia General Assembly and across the country: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170614_email_VAPrimaryReportback There is no such thing as an off-year in Virginia! The upper house of the state legislature is elected in even years, and the lower house in odd. This year, the country will be watching for signs of Democrats' strength coming out of Virginia. Democrats need 17 seats to gain the majority in the Virginia House, the same number of Republican-controlled districts that Hillary Clinton carried during the presidential election. That means Democrats could make major strides toward flipping the Virginia House of Delegates in November. These are the EMILY's List candidates who are going to help do it: Jennifer Carroll Foy (HD-02), a public defender and a local community college professor who broke barriers as one of the first women to graduate from the Virginia Military Institute. Wendy Gooditis (HD-10) has lived in her district for over 20 years and is putting her expertise to good use by organizing a local Indivisible group that has grown to over 300 members. Danica Roem (HD-13), a former journalist and now the first transgender candidate to win a major party's nomination to the Virginia General Assembly. If she wins in November, she'll bring an important voice to the decision-making table. Kelly Fowler (HD-21), who leads an all-woman team of real estate agents and was so inspired by the Women's March on Washington that she put her name on the ballot. Kathleen Murphy (HD-34), who's competing in the top incumbent seat Virginia Democrats need to protect. Before winning her first election, she helped found Salute Our Services, an organization to connect deployed service members to their families, and Kids Serve Too, an organization to honor children in military families. Hala Ayala (HD-51), a single mother of two children and cybersecurity specialist who helped organize Virginia for the Women's March on Washington. Delores McQuinn (HD-70), a two-term incumbent with a proven history as an advocate for women's reproductive rights, equal pay for equal work, and economic development in the distressed areas of her community. Finally, Cheryl Turpin (HD-85) is facing a rematch with the Republican opponent who won by less than 400 votes in the previous special election for this seat. Cheryl has spent most of her career as a teacher focused on at-risk students and is dedicated to closing the achievement gap. With the numbers in our favor and more Democratic women running for House of Delegates seats than ever before, we can give the country a preview of what Democrats can do in 2018. Donate $3 right now to help support our candidates in key races in Virginia and elect more pro-choice Democratic women across the country: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170614_email_VAPrimaryReportback Thanks, Geri Prado Senior Director of State & Local Campaigns, EMILY's List

Did you see Bernie's speech?
Friends, Last night, the People's Summit came to a passionate culmination of dozens of working groups and panels with Senator Bernie Sanders' speech in Chicago. This is our movement. We are winning the support of the people, and we are going to challenge the top one percent with an inclusive, progressive vision for what this country and the world must become. Our work hasn't been easy, but we are already transforming the political landscape at every single level of politics and government. Bernie highlighted many of the wins our movement has achieved from the stage last night. We've won leadership positions to state parties, like Morgan Carroll who took 91% of the vote to become the next chair of the Colorado Democratic Party. Monica Kurth won 73% of the vote for her state house race in Iowa, and Larry Krasner, a public defender of Black Lives Matter and Occupy, came from behind with an insurgent, grassroots campaign to win the Democratic primary for Philadelphia District Attorney. And just last night, our endorsed candidate John Courage won a seat to the San Antonio city council after his Republican opponent predicted a 70% victory. Election after election, our candidates have harnessed grassroots energy and won where progressives never had before. We have a lot of work left to do. We can't make up nearly 1,000 legislative seats lost to Republicans overnight, but in a few short months we've already seen dozens of victories. That is revolutionary, but we need your help to keep organizing and winning elections. Please make a $3 contribution to Our Revolution today so that we can continue to bring more progressives into the political fold. DONATE » secure.actblue.com/donate/peoples-summit If this weekend's People's Summit is any indication, there are thousands of people ready to take the lessons from our wins, and from some hard-fought losses too, and bring that experience back to every corner of the country. Our progressive vision can win, as we saw in the United Kingdom, where Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party won 30 seats in Parliament after they were down 24 points in the polls. Sound familiar? What Bernie talked about last night is an expression of what we all feel deep in our hearts. We want to see economic, environmental, racial, and social justice be done in America--not only for our own sakes, but for that of our children, grandchildren, and future generations as well. We are fighting for a better future. We need to sustain the passion and energy from the People's Summit and turn it into votes, stronger grassroots organizations, and bold, unapologetic strategies to bring about the change we all need to see. Will you join us? Chip in $3 to Our Revolution today. DONATE » secure.actblue.com/donate/peoples-summit Thank you for powering the political revolution. I can't wait to see what we will accomplish together. In solidarity, Shannon Jackson Executive Director Our Revolution
