Year in and year out, RootsAction.org works for a sustainable environment, fair taxation, protection of human rights, and to shift resources from war to human needs.
When a candidate for political office comes along who shares our goals and seems able to advance them, we back that candidate.
It happens very rarely.
But here's Bernie Sanders, with the strongest Green New Deal, the most comprehensive plan for Medicare for All, the farthest reaching proposal to end college debt and make education a human right, the best record and platform on wages and labor and Social Security, and proposals to fund these good ideas by ending corporate welfare, taxing billionaires, and moving money out of wars and militarism.
We are ready to help turn up the Bern. Here are some ways that you can help:
• Forward this email and the resources below far and wide.
• Get yourself and your loved ones any of our variety of Bernie shirts, and wear them everywhere.
The shirts say "If you don't like healthcare, education, a living wage, or peace, don't vote for BERNIE."
• Share our Bernie graphic on Facebook and Twitter.
