A New Supporter Briefing—See Our Impact

Thank you so much for supporting MoveOn!

Contributors like you power our massive and vibrant network. You’re a Partner for Change who helped fuel our work in 2020 to protect the right to vote, to advance racial justice, protect our democracy, and so much more. And our work does not stop. Over these next four years, we will continue to organize millions of people to push our country and democracy toward a future of justice, equality, sustainability, and love.

Read on to see how your contributions help make progress every day.

Historic Legislation: We Helped Push Congress to Pass a Strong COVID Relief Bill

The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan brings immediate relief to Americans. In the video above, MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting talks about what Democrats should do to overcome Republican obstructionism and pass more bold legislation like this.

And it wasn’t easy getting the American Rescue Plan over the line. Your support helped mobilize masses of people to pressure Congress to pass a robust bill. A glimpse of our actions:

 

Bullet

We ran a full-page ad in the Arizona Daily Star pressing Senator Kyrsten Sinema to fight for everyone in need of support.

 

Bullet

Members made thousands of calls to senators and representatives, and showed up outside senators’ offices to urge them to support robust relief, amplified by billboards member donations helped fund.

 

Bullet

Thousands joined our Twitter rally #OurSurvivalAtStake, sharing their stories of pandemic hardship. #OurSurvivalAtStake was the #3 trend nationally on the day of the rally.

 

WE ARE MOVEON: PROFILE HIGHLIGHT

Mohammad Khan
MoveOn Campaign Director

Mohammad has been a MoveOn member since 2003, worked at MoveOn since 2019, and played a vital role in organizing our MoveOn member community to fight for robust COVID relief.

Fighting for Accountability for GOP Seditionists

We are determined to hold traitorous officials in Congress accountable for helping to incite the deadly January 6 insurrection. Supporters like you helped launch a Treason Caucus Accountability campaign (read more about it here). Together, we took actions such as these:

Bullet

Homepage ads on the sites of the home-district newspapers of Josh Hawley (R-MO), Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Ron Johnson (R-WI) to remind constituents how their senators failed them.

 

Bullet

We helped remove extremist Marjorie Taylor Greene from her House committee assignments by intensifying public pressure with eye-catching billboards and in-person member events.

 

Emergency Humanitarian Aid for Texans

When millions of Texans suffered massive power outages and clean water shortages, we swung into action:

Bullet

Together, we raised more than $500,000 for the Workers Defense Fund and the Texas Organizing Project, who worked frantically to deliver water and food to hard-hit communities.

 

Bullet

MoveOn volunteers also used text messaging to check in on hundreds of thousands of Texans and to share helpful resources.

 

Bullet

While our fundraising for aid for Texans has wrapped up, we’re pushing for accountability and changes. Check out and sign petitions such as “Ted Cruz: Resign,” “Investigate ERCOT Now,” and “Greg Abbott: Reinstate Texas Mask Mandate.

 

WHAT’S NEXT FOR MOVEON?

When millions of Texans suffered massive power outages and clean water shortages, we swung into action:

Bullet

We’re campaigning to ensure Biden’s Build Back Better package, the next COVID recovery bill, is a robust, inclusive, and progressive one that speaks to the needs of everyday people.

Bullet

We are fighting hard for the Senate Democrats to ditch the filibuster rule so Congress can work again and deliver for the people…

Bullet

and pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. They are vitally important for our democracy, especially with over 250 state-level attacks on access to voting already in motion.

And Finally

All of this critical work to protect our democracy and fight for justice would not be possible without contributors like you. Thank you for being a Partner for Change. As Representative Pramila Jayapal’s tweet below from the eve of President Biden signing the American Relief Plan says, everything we’ve done in the past year—and continue to do—paves the way for big, bold, progressive change. And we couldn’t have done any of it without your support!

We’re in a critical moment now—with Democrats leading the White House, Senate and House—to make groundbreaking changes that our country badly needs. Help us maximize the huge progressive potential of this opportunity.

Will you chip in to help sustain our non-stop work to make these bold changes happen?

Yes, I’ll chip in!
