We are all honored to be members of the Board of Directors of Our Revolution, inspired by Bernie Sanders and his historic presidential campaign. The campaign was always about the movement we were building, as well as supporting a truly amazing candidate.
"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.”
