Today, RootsAction.org is launching a new campaign -- for the future of our planet, and for democracy itself. It’s called #VoteTrumpOut.
Donald Trump is a racist, with fascist tendencies -- willing to use undemocratic means to stay in power. For the sake of everything we care about, we need to defeat him in November and eject him from the White House.
That’s why we’re teaming up with Noam Chomsky, Congressman Ro Khanna, Jamie Margolin, Ady Barkan, Linda Sarsour and other leading progressives to launch #VoteTrumpOut -- a digital campaign aimed at strong Bernie supporters and other progressives in swing states. Our goal is simple: mobilize progressives to bury Trump in swing states and then challenge Biden from day one of his administration, demanding the kinds of structural reforms that advance racial, economic, and environmental justice.
We’re emailing you because we need your help. Can you give $5 to help defeat Trump in November, then hold Biden accountable come January?
RootsAction has always been, and will always be, a stubbornly progressive organization. So we’re not going to minimize our disagreements with Joe Biden or endorse him. What we are saying to swing state voters is this: Joe Biden will be a far better opponent to have in the White House than Donald Trump.
The progressive movement has already shown that with Biden in the White House, we could win some real victories on issues from climate to immigration. Trump, on the other hand, is immune to progressive persuasion or protest . . . and would be even more dangerous in a second term. If Trump wins again, the next four years would bring a worsening climate disaster and massive suffering for vulnerable people everywhere -- and, by the end, U.S. democracy might be unsalvageable.
Voters in battleground states cannot afford to sit this election out or cast a third-party protest vote.
So although RootsAction vigorously and proudly supported Bernie Sanders in the primary, we’re clear-eyed about where things stand now: Voting for Joe Biden in swing states is the only means we have to defeat Trump. And we have a moral responsibility to defeat Trump.

The stakes of this election couldn’t be higher, and it’s on all of us to determine its outcome. Chip in to make sure Trump loses -- not by a hair, by a landslide.
