"Over the past week, candidates endorsed by Our Revolution have won important races in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New York. Of the 10 races Our Revolution backed, eight progressive champions came away victorious. Three of those candidates took down incumbents who had been serving for 20 years or more," said Executive Director Shannon Jackson.
“We must continue to fight for economic, social, racial and environmental justice—and this diverse group of progressive candidates have proven their commitment to the future of our country and their own communities,” said Executive Director Shannon Jackson. “We are proud to support these leaders, who are fighting at the grassroots level to respond to the needs of working families.”
“Yesterday, we saw the power of grassroots organizing with the two victories in Massachusetts. Both of these candidates embody the progressive values that continue to fuel the political revolution," said Executive Director Shannon Jackson. "Whether it was spreading the word online, knocking on doors or volunteering-- these victories are a testament to what we can accomplish when we stand together."
"We must continue to work towards electing local leaders who will work tirelessly for social and economic justice,” said Executive Director Shannon Jackson. “These candidates are dedicated to fighting for under-served communities and committed to advancing policies that would give their constituents access to universal health care, a free college education and a livable minimum wage. They embody the progressive values that fueled the political revolution and we are honored to give them our support.”
"I am proud to join the board and continue volunteering for Our Revolution. Bernie's transformative campaign was just the beginning,” said civil rights leader Ben Jealous. “We now have to follow through on our promises to help pass criminal justice reform, the $15 minimum wage and climate change legislation while stopping our endless wars and the TPP, and electing true progressives from the Deep South to the Northwest.”
