It’s the organization’s final round of endorsements for the 2016 election cycle.
"Monday’s debate should serve as a reminder of how important this election is. We must show up and support candidates who put working families first,” said Political Outreach Manager Erika Andiola. “Our Revolution is honored to support these candidates because they’re fighting for economic, social, racial and environmental justice in their own backyards. Whether it’s a 26-year-old in Stockton, working to revitalize and invest in his hometown, a 24-year-old who helped organize DACA clinics across Arkansas, or a state senator fighting to protect public education and raise the minimum wage: the political revolution is alive and well. Make sure you’re registered to vote, so you can stand behind these progressive champions on Election Day.”
For many of us, the images and videos of police violence we’ve seen over the last few years can feel like too much to bear. The sad reality is that these images are only glimpses into systems of racism that extend back to the beginnings of our country and into every layer of our society and government.
Academy award-nominated documentary filmmaker Josh Fox and Our Revolution on Wednesday announced a series of #ClimateRevolution rallies, scheduled to take place in cities, towns and campuses across America this fall.
"Candidates endorsed by Our Revolution are making 'inevitable' races competitive, with three of our progressive champions taking down incumbents who have served for 20 years or more," said Political Outreach Manager Erika Andiola. "These candidates are winning because they put working families first and embody the progressive values that continue to fuel the political revolution. We're honored to stand by this latest round of candidates as they fight for social and economic justice in their own backyards."
