We’re making Michigan a megaphone for Peace.

Our Revolution is joined by Rashida Tlaib and former Congressman Andy Levin in this call to get progressives to ‘Vote Uncommitted’ as a push for Peace in the Michigan presidential primary on Feb. 27th.

We must send a clear message directly to the Biden campaign: Change course NOW on Gaza or else risk losing Michigan to Trump in November.

If you’re in Michigan, pledge here to Vote Uncommitted on Tuesday!

“Our Revolution is throwing its weight behind the movement to vote Uncommitted in Michigan’s Democratic primary, seeking to pressure President Biden into changing his approach to the war between Israel and Hamas,” wrote the New York Times this week.

“It’s a strategic opportunity to send a signal to the president that he’s got to change course,” Our Revolution Executive Director Joseph Geevarghese told CBS News.

This effort intends to “realign with the values of his base, including young voters, voters of color, and Michigan’s significant Arab-American population,” reported John Nichols in The Nation.

“Months of protests and activism in cities across the country continue to be ignored, and this latest veto (of the UN ceasefire resolution) shows exactly why it’s imperative for voters to send a message to the Biden administration at the ballot box,” Joseph told The Hill.

“With just a few days until the Michigan primary vote, Biden’s blockade of the cease-fire resolution will only intensify the outrage and galvanize pro-peace voices to vote ‘uncommitted’ to make their voices heard,” Joseph said.

Our Revolution organizers are making calls, sending texts, and emailing our 87,000 members in Michigan — chip in so we can reach as many Michigan voters as possible.

The grassroots has already chipped in $12,000 for this project, but we need to raise $20,000. Can you make a donation now to help us close the gap? Thank you for being a voice for Peace!

We have a shot to elect a true champion for Peace in Barbara Lee to the U.S. Senate. Not only did she stand alone in Congress to vote against the Iraq War, but she was one of the first to stand strong for a Ceasefire in Gaza.

But, Barbara has been leading the charge on just about every progressive issue from Day 1 — reproductive rights, healthcare for all, racial justice, environment, poverty, and so much more.

She truly is the movement candidate in this race, and we are excited to rally with her in a GOTV tour across California leading up to the last day to vote on March 5th.

On Monday, we’ll be joining Barbara Lee and friends at Sweet’s Ballroom in Oakland, CA for a major campaign rally that kicks off at 6:30 pm PST.

Barbara will also be rallying at 7pm PST tonight in Bakersfield, California — so don’t miss it if you’re in the neighborhood!

We are proud of the strong and diverse multi-generational, multi-ethnic, grassroots coalition backing Barbara. Now it’s time to turn our coalition out to vote.

Join Congresswoman Lee and friends for rallies in San Diego and Orange County on Saturday, March 2nd, and in Inland Empire and Los Angeles on Sunday March 3rd!

Our Revolution organizers and volunteers have already made 1.5 million voter contacts into California. Pitch in $5, $27, or $50 to help us reach our goal of making another half-million contacts before voting ends on March 5th.

And, Our Revolution is supporting Lateefah Simon for Congress to succeed Barbara Lee in the seat from California’s District 12.

If elected, Lateefah is sure to carry on Barbara’s legacy in the seat — as a veteran organizer and advocate for civil rights and social justice.

She is a strong advocate for single-payer universal healthcare, reducing military spending, putting peace first, and lifting up priorities of housing, reproductive justice, and more.

As Barbara said, “Lateefah is from the community and for the community.”

Organized people can beat organized money, and these races are going to come down to our grassroots power. Pitch in today to fuel our GOTV operation in 2024.

In California, Our Revolution is endorsing three great candidates to join the Kern County Democratic Central Committee in District 3 — and make the party more transparent and responsive to the grassroots.

Neel Sannappa is the chair of Our Revolution Kern County and has worked to hold politicians accountable for voting against working families in Kern County.

Megan Russell currently serves as a representative for ADEM AD35 and has previously been the membership coordinator for Our Revolution Kern County. Megan has lots of great experience in Community, Electoral, and Labor Organizing and is currently an external Union Organizer with SEIU.

Ajaib Gill is a lawyer who is committed to criminal justice reform, education, and our progressive platform. He would be a strong progressive voice inside the party.

It’s critical that we continue to elect progressives at every level of government. Chip in a one-time or monthly donation to advance our priorities against the political establishment.

In total, Our Revolution has endorsed nearly 100 progressive candidates in California, and we’re activating our grassroots army to power our massive GOTV operation - from calling and texting to knocking doors.

You’ve met our slate in Sacramento, where we can elect Sean Frame to the California Assembly and win a progressive majority on the Sacramento City Council.

In San Francisco, we’ve endorsed two judges facing right-wing “tough on crime” opponents and a host of progressives running to transform the Democratic Party from the inside out at the county level.

We’ve also introduced you to Our Revolution’s slates in Alameda County, Contra Costa County, and Southern California — where we have powerhouses like Jovanka Beckles, who took on Chevron and won, and Alex Mohajer, who would be the first openly gay Iranian man elected anywhere in the world.

Our Revolution is running a massive GOTV operation on the ground, on the phones, by mail and through voter to voter conversations. Chip in to help us build progressive power in California and beyond this election year.

As the 2024 elections get into full swing, we’d love to hear from you about candidates our members are excited about! Email our political team at to nominate candidates for Our Revolution’s endorsement.

You can help elect Barbara Lee from anywhere in the country by making calls as part of Our Revolution’s Phone Bank Team. It’s a lot of fun, but this is serious business because we know what it would mean to get a powerhouse like Barbara in the U.S. Senate!

Every seat matters. That’s why Our Revolution is gearing up NOW for 2024 to expand our organizational capacity and our voter turnout operation for the crucial battles to come.

Not only must we defeat Donald Trump and the far right, but we have got to take back the House, defeat enemies of progress like Kyrsten Sinema in the Senate, and elect amazing progressives like Barbara Lee to turn this ship around.

If you can, please kick in a few bucks or commit to a recurring donation to help us staff up and get to work — there’s no time to waste!

AIPAC lobbyists are already preparing to spend more than $100 MILLION to try to unseat some of our strongest peace champions in Congress, including Pramila Jayapal, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush, Summer Lee, and others.

Progressives are under attack for demanding a Ceasefire and an end to the killing of thousands of Palestinian civilians and children — and we must have their back in 2024.

Help fund our phone banks, texting, and voter-to-voter mobilization to defend and expand progressive power in Congress and beyond. We must make sure our most powerful anti-war voices are not silenced by big money in 2024.

From boots on the ground to the halls of Congress — we are building an organized progressive movement at every level of government. If you’re already a member of Our Revolution, THANK YOU! If you’re not yet an official member, please consider signing up for a recurring monthly donation today!
