I'm asking you one last time

The future of our party
DemocratsJoin us.
Make an investment in the future of our party. Pitch in $3 or more today:


Friend --

I grew up believing in the Democratic Party because I always knew that this was my party.

When I was a little girl of 16, watching Barbara Jordan speak to the 1976 Democratic Convention, I said to myself, her hair is nappy and her skin is dark -- and she is a part of the party that looks like me.

Seeing her on TV, on that stage mattered to me. Hearing the values she spoke about cheered on by the Democratic Party mattered. And I've been thinking about that moment a lot lately, as my term as DNC Chair comes to a close -- because this work we do, and this party we love, matters to too many people for me to ever think my job is through.

That's why I'm asking you -- one final time as Chair -- to help Democrats do the work that means so much to so many.

There are some folks out there who want to count us out, who will tell you that the Democratic Party doesn't matter. Don't you dare listen to them.

You ask a DREAMer if we matter.

You ask an environmentalist if we matter.

You ask a Muslim if we matter.

You ask that little black girl running around with her eight siblings in Kenner, Louisiana with the dream of giving Americans all across the country representation and change they could believe in -- you're damn right this party matters!

So before we go ahead and elect our new Chair (and before I head home for Mardi Gras to shake my tail feather down Bourbon Street with the band), I need you to pitch in $3 or whatever you can today to show that you will continue to fight with this party as we fight for the things that matter.

If you've saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately.

QUICK DONATE: $3
QUICK DONATE: $10
QUICK DONATE: $25
QUICK DONATE: $50
QUICK DONATE: $100
Or donate another amount.
Thanks. While I may be stepping off the scene, I will never retire. This is my life's work -- standing with you is my purpose and drive -- and I'm so thankful for my time as the DNC Chair.

SIGN ON: Tell Congress to investigate Trump's ties with Russia

We need an independent investigation into Trump's ties with Russia.
DemocratsJoin us.
New details are trickling out every day about the Trump administration's ties to Russia. Add your name to demand an independent investigation immediately:


Did you hear about the terrorist attack in Sweden?

Me neither. And neither did millions of confused Swedes. So why was Donald Trump talking about one in front of a huge crowd at his first re-election campaign rally last week?

The answer is pretty simple. When Donald Trump wants to sweep something under the rug, he invents a distraction. The thing he doesn't want you to see: the new details that are trickling out every day about his administration's ties to Russia.

Don't let the smokescreen fool you. Donald can shout "fake news" all he wants, and make up fictional attacks from Bowling Green to Stockholm and everywhere in between.

But the fact remains that there are serious questions that need to be answered. Did Trump's campaign coordinate with Russian intelligence to sabotage our democracy? Does Trump keep lavishing praise on Putin as payback for helping Trump win? Is he being blackmailed by the Kremlin?

We can't stop Trump from lying ten times a minute, but we can keep the pressure on Republicans in Congress to not let this administration off the hook.

Add your name to demand an independent investigation into Trump and Russia immediately:


Thanks for keeping this up,

Eric

Add your name if you're not a paid protestor

We have to protect the Affordable Care Act.
DemocratsJoin us.
Make sure Republicans know they can't hide from their constituents. Add your name to tell the GOP to protect affordable health care, not repeal it:


Friend --

Yesterday, at Sen. Tom Cotton's town hall in Bentonville, Arkansas, one of Cotton's constituents asked anyone in the crowd who was affected by the Affordable Care Act to stand up.

Here's what happened:

Nearly the whole crowd stood up -- load images.

The GOP's plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act will affect us all. We have to do everything we can to protect our health care.

Scenes like this one are happening all across the country, but Trump and some Republican members of Congress are trying to dismiss them as the work of paid protestors.

That's just absurd.

Another woman came to Cotton's town hall to ask what he'd do to help her husband, who currently only pays $29 a month for health insurance under the ACA. She told him that she lives just down the road from his district office. She wasn't a paid protestor.

The man who showed up at Sen. Chuck Grassley's town hall in Iowa Falls and explained how he wouldn't be able to afford insurance at all if it wasn't for Obamacare wasn't a paid protestor.

One woman in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky told Sen. Mitch McConnell that if he could answer her questions about how unemployed coal miners and veterans would be able to afford health care, she'd "sit down and shut up like Elizabeth Warren." She wasn't a paid protestor.

Republicans know that the more they talk about their plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the more popular the ACA gets. They'd rather dismiss their constituents or even cancel town hall meetings altogether than look them in the eye and admit that they've spent the last seven years trying to take health care away from millions of Americans.

Let's make sure they know there's nowhere to hide. Click here and join the 308,961 grassroots Democrats who have called on Congress to protect the Affordable Care Act. Even if your Republican representatives aren't holding town halls (or if you're fortunate enough to be represented in Congress by Democrats who will fight for your health care), you can still make your voice heard:


Thanks,

Eric

I want to make sure you get the news first

Be the first to know who the next DNC Chair will be.


Friend --

On Saturday, we'll elect a new Democratic Party Chair and leadership team.

Because you're one of our party's most committed supporters, I want to make sure you hear the big news as soon as it's announced. Click here and sign up to be one of the first to know who the next DNC Chair is.

Over the past month, you've proven that Democrats are ready for action.

More than a million grassroots supporters have signed petitions to fight back against the Trump administration, and you've made millions of calls to Congress to oppose Trump's nominees and demand accountability.

You marched on Washington and in your communities, and you're showing up at town halls with your members of Congress to make sure they hear your voice.

And you know what? It's working. Most Americans disapprove of what Trump is doing, and Republicans are starting to figure out that they're going to pay a hefty price at the polls for giving him a blank check for his first month.

Because of that, we now have an unexpected chance to take back the House next year if we have the right strategy and make some smart investments -- that's going to be up to the new Chair to determine.

But whoever he or she is, our next Democratic Party Chair is going to be relying on you to keep up the passion and energy that you showed throughout the 2016 election and that have been powering the resistance. Our party has always relied on grassroots supporters like you to power this movement, and that's never going to change.

So make sure you're ready to join our new Chair for the fights ahead. Sign up now, and we'll let you know who wins Saturday's election as soon as it's announced -- so we can get to work together.


Thanks -- and keep an eye on your inbox.

Be the first to know who the next DNC Chair will be.


Our Founding Fathers created our government's system of checks and balances in order to keep people like Donald Trump from threatening our constitutional rights and compromising our democracy.

But at the moment, that system is crippled. That's because Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have unified the Republican Party in unquestioning devotion to Donald Trump. They've remained silent as Trump signs shameful executive orders and voted in near-lockstep to green-light each of his wildly-unqualified Cabinet nominations. And when their constituents demanded that they hold Trump accountable, they turned off their office phones and canceled town hall meetings to avoid them.

Congress should be accountable to the people -- not Donald Trump. That's one of the reasons why in the coming days, once our party elects a new DNC Chair, Democrats will get right to work on the development of a winning strategy for 2018.

I want to make sure you stay in the know every step of the way. Just add your name here, and you'll be one of the first to know who becomes the next DNC Chair -- and how you can help them get started.


It's been an honor to fight by your side.

Thanks for everything,

Donna

There's a lot of questions that need answers, but one thing is clear -- Republicans aren't going to investigate Trump's Russian connections unless pushed to do so:
