“We must continue our grassroots efforts to create the America that we know we can become,” Bernie Sanders said last night. “And we must take that energy into the Democratic National Convention on July 25 in Philadelphia where we will have more than 1,900 delegates.”
That’s why RootsAction needs your help. Now. We’re gearing up for the convention -- with nationwide organizing. RootsAction is coordinating the independent Bernie Delegates Network.
RootsAction co-founder Norman Solomon is a Bernie Sanders delegate, and he’ll be working directly with hundreds of Bernie delegates to fight for our progressive agenda.
** It costs money to puncture the bloated spinning bubble at a Democratic National Convention, but we’re determined to do it with a vibrant media operation there. Our expenses are already mounting for essential groundwork.

** More than ever, it’s not up to Bernie to organize progressives -- we’ve got to organize ourselves. There’s no time to lose.
You can help build the Bernie Delegates Network by contacting any delegates you know -- or can reach in your region -- and urging them to sign up at BernieDelegatesNetwork.org. (Please note: Signups on that webpage are ONLY for Bernie delegates to the Democratic National Convention.)
We’re determined to generate powerful messaging at the convention, potentially reaching millions of people with a methodical media operation. To make that possible, please:
Donate $3 or whatever you can afford to help transform the 2016 Democratic National Convention!
Back in 2013, nearly 20,000 RootsAction members took part in our survey -- urging Bernie to run for president by a 9 to 1 margin, with most wanting him to run in Democratic primaries. We quickly provided the survey results to Senator Sanders.
You were with RootsAction when we backed Bernie’s powerful domestic agenda, and when we urged him to speak out more clearly against militarism and perpetual war.
You were with us when we called on Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to resign because of her blatant favoritism and corporatism (e.g. supporting the payday loan profiteers).
Please be with us now!
Your donations will help us to organize with Bernie delegates and many other activists who want to move the political revolution forward at the convention.
Your support will enable major media outreach to the many thousands of journalists at the convention -- so that strong advocates will be heard on such vital issues as climate change, economic injustice, institutionalized racism, police violence, Wall Street power, the huge Pentagon budget and perpetual war.
There’s no time to lose. We’re working long hours every day to gear up. Please help provide the resources needed at this pivotal time.
