  1. Our Revolution is on the front-lines fighting to dismantle the racist criminal justice policies put in place by Bill Clinton, Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden and other so-called “tough on crime” Democrats.

    From coast to coast, we’re taking on the establishment by electing a deep bench of progressive District Attorneys committed to cracking down on police brutality and ending mass incarceration.

    Just last week — in a major upset — members of Our Revolution Oregon helped elect progressive insurgent Mike Schmidt to be the next District Attorney in Portland. Mike campaigned to hold rogue cops accountable and review wrongful convictions claims.

    Mike will join Chesa Boudin (San Francisco), Larry Krasner (Philadelphia), Dave Clegg (Ulster County, New York) and other Our Revolution endorsed DA’s who are already implementing transformative policies to root out structural racism in law enforcement.

    Right now, Our Revolution members are marching on the streets to protest police brutality. But we’re also doing the organizing necessary to elect progressive District Attorneys who will fight for big structural change. Rush a donation now to support our work!

    We know that social change happens from organizing both inside and outside. That’s why Our Revolution’s theory of change marries direct action, issue advocacy, and electoral organizing. But to execute this mission effectively, our movement relies on grassroots power.

    That’s why we need your help to ramp up our organizing. Rush a donation now to help us keep up the pressure — both in the streets and at the ballot box!

    Onward,

    Joseph Geevarghese
    Executive Director
    Our Revolution
