Register Democrats.

Save the World.

January 15, 2021




With the attack on our Capitol and democracy, we’ve seen how close America has come to fascism after four years of Trump. And though we took the positive step of impeaching this president again, we are far from out of the woods.  You are the people doing something about it. And because you have been doing something about it for four years, you brought us from having no power in the federal government to winning the House in 2018, the White House in 2020, and the Senate in 2021 – a Democratic trifecta. We will get through these next six days. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will be sworn in. We have fought on the front lines to defend our democracy, and we have won our survival. In this uncertain moment, be certain that we can continue to change things for the better. These are the darkest moments. We suspected they would be. But because of you, the light is coming. Celebrate that however you can, whenever you can, and build a shrine in your heart to the good you have done. Honor that. Center yourself in that joyful truth. And as soon as you’re ready, join our new Adopt-a-Traitor campaign and make sure we flip every Republican seat we can! We’ve got a beautiful new world to build!



Hours after the attempted coup, 147 Republicans voted to overturn an American election. We’ve found 3 million unregistered Democrats in their districts. Let’s make sure they lose their seats by a landslide. Welcome to our new Adopt-a-Traitor campaign! To start, we are adopting three traitors representing battleground states whose districts are eminently flippable – one in NC, one in FL, and one in TX. We’ve already set up phone banks targeting them (sign up below!), and if you can help us raise the funds for it, we’d love to add text banks, targeted emails, and social media ads to the battle. Adopt one of these traitors yourself, and help us raise the funds to unleash the full power of our digital organizing! In the coming days, we’ll be posting a list of additional traitors up for adoption, always prioritizing the most flippable ones to make sure your work has maximum impact.  And now, allow me to introduce our first three targets! Meet North Carolina’s Richard Hudson, a Republican who voted to overturn an American election. In November, Richard won his district (NC-08) by 6.6 points, or 25,000 votes. We have 34,000 eligible voters to call in his district. Let’s register every single one we can – and make sure he loses in a landslide. In Florida, traitorous Republican congressman Carlos Gimenez won his district (FL-26) by 3.4 points, or 12,000 votes. We have 35,000 eligible voters to call in his district. And in Texas, Beth Van Duyne (R) won her district (TX-24) by 1.3 points, or 4,584 votes. We have 23,000 eligible voters to call in her district. Remember, in 2022 every single Democrat we’ve registered in Florida will also help us beat Governor Ron DeSantis and Senator Marco Rubio. In North Carolina, they’ll help us beat Senator Richard Burr. In Texas, they’ll help get rid of Governor Greg Abbott, and in 2024, Ted Cruz. Because our organizer heroes Gina Harris, Mervis Reissig, and Ashley Craig stepped up to lead, our phone banks begin Sunday – sign up HERE! Donate below to level up these campaigns: Click to Adopt Traitor Richard Hudson (R-NC)Click to Adopt Traitor Carlos Gimenez (R-FL)Click to Adopt Traitor Beth Van Duyne (R-TX) This is going to be fun.

Last week’s violent attack on our Capitol and Constitution struck at the very heart of our democracy. Even more shameful than Trump’s lies about election fraud is that his lies were repeated ad nauseam by Republican senators and representatives charged with protecting our democracy. They also bear responsibility for the 1/6 Capitol Invasion. Please watch our powerful VIDEO kickstarting the campaign to remove from office every single treasonous member of the GOP who aided and abetted this assault on our democracy. Share it wherever you can! And use this well-crafted TOOLKIT from our friends at Democracy Rising for helpful messaging, pre-made posts, and other resources in this important effort.



If you missed Jason Berlin’s 2021-22 Strategy Briefing last night, never fear… it’s on YouTube for your viewing pleasure! Check it out today – and hear all about our big plans for 2021 and 2022 to Grow the Senate, Grow the House, and win downballot races too in our 8 new battleground states!


Due to recent unsettling events, from the 1/6 insurrection to continued right-wing threats of violence, we are postponing this celebratory fundraiser to a TBD date in February. Instead, at the same date and time, we’ll be hosting a free party (see below) to celebrate the inauguration four years in the making – hope we see you all at both!


Let’s get together to lift a glass to everything we’ve accomplished, discuss what’s going on right now and what we can do about it, and have a virtual group hug! Join us Friday, January 22 from 5-6p PT for music, a dash of therapy, good conversation… and huge amounts of love and gratitude for every single one of you who helped literally save the world!! RSVP HERE!
