Sign my pledge to take on the gun lobby

If our current Congress won't act, American voters must. Join me in the fight to end gun violence.
Friend --

I am going to work tirelessly in 2018 to ensure we elect a Congress that is willing to stand up to the gun lobby. Today I am counting on you to join me.

Sign my pledge: "I promise that I will Vote Courage in November and support candidates who will stand up to the gun lobby and take action to make our communities safer from gun violence."

If our current Congress won't act, American voters must. Thank you for standing with me in this fight.

Friend --

I know politicians fear the gun lobby.

But I also know that fear cannot compare to what those innocent children in Florida felt as the gunshots rang out, bullets flew through the halls of their school, and their teachers and classmates were gunned down.

That fear is nothing compared to what parents must have felt waiting in the parking lot of the high school waiting for news about their children.

Our nation's schools should be the safest spaces in our communities. They should not be the place of horror. And while I wish that the scenes from earlier this week were unthinkable or unimaginable, they are not.

We have seen them before, and we will see them again... unless our elected leaders show the courage to act -- the courage to finally take on the gun lobby.

But that will only happen when politicians realize they have more to fear from all of us together than they do from the gun lobby. And that starts with making our voices heard:

Sign my pledge: "I promise that I will Vote Courage in November and support candidates who will stand up to the gun lobby and take action to make our communities safer from gun violence."

For a long time I bought into the fiction that after a horrific shooting, there is a required period of silence -- where we aren't supposed to act. I know people felt that way after I was shot, as well.

But the truth is, the only one who benefits from that waiting period is the gun lobby -- which is why their defenders offer little more than "thoughts and prayers" for the families and condemnations for anyone who demands that our communities deserve more.

In 2018, I am going to work tirelessly to ensure we elect a Congress that is willing to stand up to the gun lobby. And I know the Democratic National Committee will do the same.

Add your name. Pledge to Vote Courage in 2018:

https://my.democrats.org/Sign-the-Pledge

Every day we fail to take action, we choose this fate. We tolerate politicians who fail to acknowledge this crisis and vote against our safety. We let our gun violence epidemic continue day after deadly day.

This cycle has to end. And it will end... with us.

All my best,

Gabby Giffords

Conor Lamb needs us right now:

March 13th is the Pennsylvania special election -- Conor needs our help to flip this seat from red to blue.
DemocratsJoin us.
Taking back the House in November starts with electing Conor Lamb on March 13th.

The Pennsylvania congressional special election is in just 27 days -- and in a race that appears deadlocked, these final weeks will determine whether we can flip another seat from red to blue.

Here's why Conor needs your help: He's counting on grassroots donors like you to help him win, and he won't win unless lots of people step up to support his campaign. How about it?

Split a $10 donation between Conor Lamb and the DNC. Your support will help send Conor to the House and elect Democrats nationwide this year.

Here are a few more things you should know about Conor:
  • He's a 33-year-old former Marine and federal prosecutor
  • He grew up in the district and is fully invested in fighting for the families who live there
  • If elected, he'll defend affordable health care, Medicare, and Social Security
Conor Lamb can win this race -- but only if enough of us step up to support him.

Chip in $10 to split a contribution between Conor Lamb and the DNC to show you stand with Conor and Democrats everywhere.

As long as Democrats continue standing united, there is no limit to what we can do together.

Let's do this,

The Democrats

We can send Conor Lamb to Congress

Conor Lamb's election is coming up on March 13th. Chip in today to help him win his race:
DemocratsJoin us.
Friend --

In just 28 days, voters in Pennsylvania's 18th District will get the chance to send Conor Lamb to Congress -- and flip a House seat from red to blue.

This is a close race, and Republicans are pouring in millions of dollars to try to defeat him. Unlike his Republican opponent, Conor isn't accepting corporate PAC donations -- he's relying on grassroots supporters like you.

Will you step up to help Conor win the Pennsylvania special election? Split a $10 contribution between Conor Lamb and the DNC today to elect Democrats nationwide.

This race is just the start of Democrats taking back the House in November. If we win, it'll put Republicans on high alert AND flip a critical seat from red to blue.

Conor is a 33-year-old former Marine and federal prosecutor who grew up in the district and sees it as his duty to fight for middle-class families. He's ready to fight for our values in the House of Representatives, but he won't get that chance without your support.

Chip in $10 today to split a donation between Conor Lamb and the DNC. Your support will help send Conor to Congress and elect Democrats across the country.

Thank you,

The Democrats

Let's send Conor Lamb to Congress

On March 13th, there is an important special election in Pennsylvania -- and Conor Lamb needs your help to win.
DemocratsJoin us.
On March 13th, we have another chance to flip a seat in Congress from red to blue.

Conor Lamb is a former Marine and federal prosecutor, and he has a real chance to pull an upset in a traditionally Republican district in western Pennsylvania. Flipping this seat will send a shiver down every Donald Trump-enabling Republican's spine, and it could be crucial to helping Democrats take back the House in November.

But you and I both know that unless Conor has the resources to mobilize voters in his congressional district, he won't win this race.

Every seat matters. Will you step up to help Conor win?

Split a $10 donation between Conor Lamb and the DNC to help elect Democrats nationwide.

If we send Conor to Congress, we'll be one step closer to taking back control of the House -- and I guarantee you it will make every single Republican up for re-election this November think twice about staying in lockstep with Trump. Conor has an uphill battle ahead of him -- his congressional district has been represented by a Republican ever since it was redrawn almost two decades ago. He can pull off this upset, but it won't happen without your help.

This special election is coming up in just a few weeks -- and time is running out to make a difference in this race.

Split a $10 donation between Conor Lamb's campaign and the DNC right now.

Thanks for stepping up,

Amanda

We can win a House seat before November:

On March 13th, there is an important special election in Pennsylvania -- and Conor Lamb needs your help to win.
DemocratsJoin us.
Friend --

I'd like to talk to you about Conor Lamb -- the Democratic candidate in the upcoming special election in Pennsylvania's 18th District.

Conor is a 33-year-old Marine and former federal prosecutor, and he's currently fighting to flip a critical House seat from red to blue. He has refused to accept corporate PAC donations, so he's relying on grassroots supporters to fund his campaign.

The special election is March 13th, and these final weeks will be the difference between winning and losing. So I am asking you today:

Will you split a $10 donation between Conor Lamb and the DNC? Your support will send Conor to the House and elect Democrats in all 50 states this year.

Let me tell you -- flipping this seat would send a clear message to the GOP that Democrats can win anywhere we fight. It would send shockwaves through the Republican Party that every district is up for grabs.

We won't take back the House in November unless we compete for every seat -- and that starts right now, with the upcoming special election in Pennsylvania.

Chip in $10 today to split a donation between Conor Lamb and the DNC.

If enough people step up to support Conor ahead of the special election, I know he can win.

Thanks for all you do,

Amanda
