Endorsing Keith Ellison

Millennial Leaders Endorse Keith Ellison for DNC Chair was posted February 2017.

Young people have been at the forefront of every major struggle in our country to make real the promise of democracy. During the last election cycle, our generation played a pivotal role in bringing economic and racial justice to the forefront of political dialogue, and now we are marching in the streets, rallying at airports, and at town halls resisting Donald Trump’s cabinet and his agenda of hatred and greed.

That’s why we endorse Representative Keith Ellison for DNC Chair. We believe he can activate the millennial base of the party by working with the movements we have powered.

Signatories included Kai Newkirk, Co-Founder & Mission Director, Democracy Spring.

These incredible SHEroes have been released this morning from 4rd Ave. jail in Phoenix after spending a whole day in there. They were arrested yesterday at Senator Jeff Flake's office demanding a NO vote on Kavanaugh.
