THURSDAY'S D3 DAILY ACTION: Tell Democrats to Stand Up for Women
The 2018 elections are a huge opportunity to block Trump's agenda going forward by electing a pro-woman majority in Congress. So why did Washington, D.C. Democratic Party leaders announce earlier this week they will fund anti-woman, anti-choice candidates?
Women--especially women of color--are Democrats' core voting base: 94% of Black women voted for Secretary Clinton in 2016.2 Throwing women--who are on the frontline of Trump's dangerous presidency--under the bus to boost Republican-lite candidates is not just bad policy and an affront to our basic human rights, it is a losing electoral strategy.
Right now--while there's still time to change course--is our best chance make sure Democratic Party leaders hear this loud and clear: selling out women in a desperate attempt to appeal to Trump voters is a bad strategy for the 2018 elections. Democrats should lean into their base--women and people of color--and work to inspire us, not throw us and their values out. Will you add your name?
Tell DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján: "The right to choose is non-negotiable. Stop funding candidates who will vote to take that away from women."
