Friday, June 19, 2020. New York City – Bernie Sanders sent this email today.
As you well know, real change does not come easy. Wall Street, the insurance industry, drug companies, the military-industrial complex, the fossil fuel industry, the prison-industrial complex and the 1% have endless amounts of money.
And, in a corrupt political system, that money is converted into political power. Their super PACs, campaign contributions and lobbyists fight hard and effectively to maintain the status quo and the massive level of wealth and income inequality that currently exists.
The very rich get much richer while half our people live paycheck to paycheck, 87 million are uninsured or under-insured and half a million Americans are homeless. That’s the system they want to maintain. That’s the system we want to change.
That is why our grassroots movement is supporting strong progressive candidates all across the country — candidates who are prepared to take on big money interests and fight for the working families of our country.
You can help elect those candidates by joining our Day of Action on Saturday, June 20th. Can you sign up to make calls for progressive candidates facing primaries very soon?
Here are the candidates who need your help to get out the vote before their primaries:
Congressional Candidates in Kentucky, New York and New Jersey
- Charles Booker for U.S. Senate in Kentucky
- Jamaal Bowman (NY-16)
- Mondaire Jones (NY-17)
- Samelys López (NY-15)
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14)
- Arati Kreibich (NJ-05)
District Attorney Candidates in Colorado and New York
- Amy Padden in Judicial District 18, Colorado
- Alonzo Payne in Judicial District 12, Colorado
- Matt Toporowski in Albany County, New York
State Legislative Candidates in New York
- Mike Gianaris for State Senate
- Julia Salazar for State Senate
- Jessica Ramos for State Senate
- Jabari Brisport for State Senate
- Yuh-Line Niou for State Assembly

These are some excellent progressive candidates that will fight for our values in office. We hope you’ll sign up to help them get out the vote before their primaries.
The success of our movement depends on people like you. Thank you for signing up to join this important Day of Action.
