State of the race

Bernie Sanders for President

One of the reasons Bernie has done so well throughout this campaign is because he is telling the truth about the reality of American life today. And right now, I want to tell you the truth about the reality of this race:
You already know that the New York primary was a tough loss. But there are five more primaries in less than one week and we are going fight for every single vote and every single delegate.
Not just because we are going to do everything we can to win, but because every single vote, and every single delegate for Bernie Sanders is a declaration of support for the values we share.
Together, we are the most powerful force for change in American politics today. Our political revolution has already forced a former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State to change her mind on matters as critical as international trade, the Keystone Pipeline, and the federal minimum wage. And with every vote and every victory, we grow stronger. That’s why I have to ask:
Can Bernie count on you to make a contribution to our campaign today to help us win, and as a way of saying YOU WILL NEVER STOP FIGHTING for the values we share?

The New York Times reported that just this week the Clinton campaign "hosted hundreds of bundlers" at a Manhattan hotel to "focus on bolstering her fund-raising for the contest against Mr. Sanders." Her millionaire and billionaire backers are still fighting, because for them our campaign is about more than an election — our success threatens their way of life. That’s why the head of Goldman Sachs said Bernie is "dangerous."
He is right. We are dangerous for Wall Street and the billionaire class of this country. And with every contribution, every vote, and every delegate, we become even more powerful. That's why your contribution matters. Add one today.
In solidarity,

Danny Glover: Bernie is one of us

I was honored to introduce Bernie Sanders to voters at a rally in Long Island City last night.

MoveOn for Bernie

MoveOn for Bernie

Dear New York MoveOn member,
Today is the New York primary—and New Yorkers are already turning out in droves to support Bernie Sanders for president (it's going to be a close race, and if you haven't yet voted, stop reading and get to the polls by 9 p.m.!). And I just want to take a moment to share why I care so much about today's election.
I’m in New York this week because of my two passions. As an actor and producer, I’ve been serving as a judge at the Tribeca Film Festival. As a citizen, I was honored to introduce Bernie Sanders to voters at a rally in Long Island City last night. Standing alongside other Bernie supporters, I could feel the electricity in the air—the sense that anything is possible. 
These two sides of my life are actually connected through my political activism—my interest in social justice and civil rights led me to my career as an actor. I’ve just released a short video to share my story and explain how Bernie and I draw inspiration from Martin Luther King, Jr. After you vote today, will you watch and share it to encourage your friends to vote as well? 
Can you watch and share my new video that explains how we're creating a political revolution?
Bernie stands with striking workers
Bernie and I have long shared a commitment to justice. We’ve both walked the picket line with workers striking for better conditions. We’ve both opposed wealth inequality and corporate greed. We’ve both pushed for a foreign policy that keeps us safe instead of creating endless wars. 
But when I saw images of him getting arrested for protesting segregation, I realized that Bernie is truly one of us. There he was, involved in a struggle that I had dreamed about joining as a child. And he continues in that tradition. I couldn't feel prouder to be in New York helping him become the next president of the United States.  
Together, we’re building an unstoppable movement that unites us all, defies the pundits—and will achieve a victory in the New York primary election tonight. 
Please do everything you can today to help your friends and family vote for Bernie. Click here to look up your polling place.
Thanks for all you do.
