WOW! We are blown away by your dedication and generosity, we raised $3,000 in our first ever virtual fundraiser for the Southern Poverty Law Center. Thank you to all who contributed or who spread the word about the event.
This week's theme is all about ousting Ken Buck (or at least doing our best to get more Democrats and Progressives out to vote in his district to help beat Garner/Trump. To that end, we are trying to support candidate Ike McCorkle in hitting a fundraising goal to get more support from the DNC.
DON'T FORGET TO VOTE IN THE PRIMARY

Donate to the Ike McCorcke's Campaign in CO District 4
Ike McCorkle is the combat-wounded Marine veteran and nominated Democrat running against the corrupt, racist, and misogynistic Congressman Ken Buck (R-CO). Ike is fighting for more water and better trade deals for our farmers, a Green New Deal, Medicare 4 All, police demilitarization, and an end to draining forever wars.
Ken voted against every COVID-19 relief funding bill, voted against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, is under investigation for voter fraud, and could very well be disbarred before the end of the summer.
If you cannot attend the fundraiser on Friday, donate here now. Every $10 helps.
