Subject: Need your help to fund important new ad!
We are putting the finishing touches on our next ad, which we’re hoping to run in the New York Times as soon as Monday. We think you’ll love the content – and this is no time to sit back and wait. More than ever, we must stand up and be counted – all 18 million of us. But we can’t do it without you. We are still short of the necessary funds to place the ad.
The headline is “We’re still here. We’re listening. And we’re not going away.” It says we will not rest until we hear from the Democratic party and its nominee about how they will:
- represent the 18 million Americans who voted for Hillary;
- acknowledge Hillary’s 35 years of experience;
- reform a flawed nominating process, especially caucuses;
- address the flagrant, often hostile, gender bias in the campaign;
- assure parity to the 52 percent of Americans who are women;
- apologize for their public silence in the wake of the outrageous attacks leveled by Father Pfleger against Hillary;
- and support the issues we hold dear, such as health insurance for everyone, a good start for all children, a strong economy, and a smart environmental policy.
It is so important that we speak out and speak up at this critical moment. Hillary’s supporters around the country are launching many different efforts, and WomenCount respects all of those views.
We believe that the points we raise in this ad are shared by everyone, and we hope you will get behind our latest effort.
