Dear MoveOn member,

In just a moment, I am going to ask you to split a $3
contribution between Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. But first I'd like to
explain why this request—especially today—is so important.

Ilhan and Rashida have been fighting for working families and advocating
for policies like Medicare for All, tuition-free public colleges and
universities, a Green New Deal, and ending mass incarceration and Trump's
deportation machine. It is important that they continue leading our
movement in Congress.

Both of them are facing their primary elections in August, and they are up
against the political establishment, the financial elite, and some very
powerful special-interest groups.

Their campaigns are not powered by billionaires. They rely on thousands of
grassroots contributions from supporters like you, Kaylenemcdowell.

MoveOn members played an important role in their elections two years
ago—and now they are counting on you again. With their primaries coming up
soon, your support today will make a huge difference:

of $3 between Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib? One hundred
percent of your donation will go directly to their campaigns to ensure
they are re-elected to Congress.

Ilhan and I have worked on a number of important issues in Congress,
including canceling all student debt, providing school meals year-round to
students, and protecting workers' rights. Ilhan also co-sponsored the No
Ban Act to combat Donald Trump's xenophobic Muslim Ban, and she introduced
a new War Powers Resolution to prevent Trump's reckless war with Iran. She
is a courageous leader who is leading our movement in the House.

Rashida is a critical voice in our fight for justice. In her first term in
Congress, Rashida introduced the successful House resolution to impeach
President Trump. She has also passed legislation putting an end to
fraudulent scams targeting vulnerable retirees and their pensions, and she
passed legislation prohibiting medically necessary debt from showing up on
credit reports.

Ilhan and Rashida are not afraid to challenge the status quo. They
understand that there is nothing radical about guaranteeing health care to
every man, woman, and child in the wealthiest country in the history of
the world. There is nothing radical about guaranteeing affordable housing
for all and ensuring future generations have a healthy and habitable

If we are serious about creating a government that works for all of us and
not just the wealthy few, then we need to keep leaders like Ilhan and
Rashida in Congress.

That is why I am asking you to do something important that will help
ensure their voices are with us in Congress for a long time to come:

ahead of their primaries next month?

I understand that times are tough right now and you may not be able to
give. But if you can afford to, thank you for making a contribution to
their campaigns.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

ever. Will you stand with us?
