Before Donald takes the oath...
Trump takes the Oath of Office today. Pitch in $10 or more to help Democrats fight back against his administration and Republicans in Congress, and we'll send you an Official 2017 Democratic Membership Card.
Donald Trump is about to be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States.
I can't tell you how I'll feel when that moment comes -- only that I know it will be a very different experience than the joy and pride I felt when we saw Barack Obama take his Oath of Office eight years ago.
But one thing I do know is that the fear or anger we all might be feeling can be powerful motivators to speak out louder and fight back harder than we have before. And one thing you can do to make a difference today is pitch in $10 or more to become a card-carrying member of the Democratic Party.
From showing up to rallies to protect health care to calling your senators to maybe even thinking about running for office yourself, we're seeing a silver lining come through -- and it's that people like you are more committed than ever to making a difference in their communities and are fighting back against Trump and the GOP in real, meaningful ways. It's downright inspiring.
And it's what I'm going to think about when it would otherwise be so easy to feel scared or sorry for ourselves today. We still have work to do and so much left to fight for. Pitch in $10 or more today to help us do it (and we'll send you an Official Democratic Membership Card in the mail).
