When Trumpcare went to a vote last week, there was a huge reaction to the news that the bill would likely pass.
Folks started reaching out to members of the ActBlue team on social media, looking for ways to channel their anger and disgust. Someone had to act quickly in order to make that possible.
So that’s what we did. In a matter of hours, we set up one form where donors could contribute to all 217 Democrats who will run against Republicans that voted for Trumpcare in the 2018 general elections.
Our infrastructure is built so that we’re able to accomplish something like that, but that’s only because of the donors like you who sustain our work. We’re a nonprofit and we couldn’t do any of our work without your support. Will you chip in $10 a month to support our fundraising tools?
When supporters were looking for a way to fight back, we were able to provide it.
The huge amount of money raised on ActBlue last week made national news. The massive response from grassroots donors made people around the country take notice, and analysts are already talking about the implications the bill could have for 2018 GOP campaigns.
This grassroots movement is a powerful one, and as more donors and groups get involved with resisting the Trump administration, we’ll be here offering our support to everyone involved.
As a nonprofit, we just need you to support our work. Can you chip in with a monthly contribution?
From all of us at ActBlue, thanks.
