Thank you so much for joining a group of bold everyday Americans who are just plain tired of getting screwed. It’s blunt, but it’s the truth. Working people are getting screwed by big corporations, and too often they’re getting screwed by their own government.
Working people in this country deserve better — and on this team, we know we can make it happen because we’ve already done it in New York City.

As mayor of the largest city in America — larger than 39 entire states — I watched my neighbors wait a long time for Washington to fix the issues our nation is facing. When Washington wouldn’t act, we decided to go ahead anyway. Now we have a $15 minimum wage, paid sick leave and guaranteed health care — including mental health services.
Everyone loved the idea of Universal Pre-K, but naysayers said we couldn’t afford it. We made it a priority and, within two years, ensured every four-year-old in our city receives the same start to their education, saving working parents tens of thousands of dollars in childcare expenses.
It’s time to finally put working people first in this country. And I’m so excited about what we’re going to get done together. But we’re already approaching our campaign’s first make-or-break challenge: reaching the 65,000-donor threshold to ensure we qualify for the Democratic debates.

The problems our nation is facing are urgent. That’s why we’re not sitting around making plans for how to solve things; we’re solving them now. We’re not watering down our goals to try to win over the people who made this mess possible; we’re setting and achieving bold, progressive goals now. We’re moving forward — and when we move forward together, we win.
Can you help us take one more step toward our urgent 65,000-donor goal? Donate $1 now to help ensure our voices are heard at the Democratic debates.
Whenever someone tells me we can’t prioritize solutions that will help working people live better, safer, happier and more prosperous lives, this is what I tell them: There’s plenty of money in the world. It’s just in the wrong hands.
Thank you for lending me a hand,
Bill de Blasio
