'Resistance' Builds As Hillary Unveils "Onward Together" Group To Help People Run For Office

After proclaiming herself "an activist citizen and part of the resistance," and by definition - absolutely not part of the establishment? - Hillary Clinton has unveiled her latest fund-raising vehicle - Onward Together to "champion the vision that earned 66 million votes in the last election."

The group, “Onward Together,” will work “to build a brighter future for generations to come by supporting groups that encourage people to organize and run for office," according to a statement from Hillary Clinton.

As a reminder, in early May, Clinton identified herself as part of “the resistance.”

“I can’t be anything other than who I am,” Clinton said at a Women for Women International event.

 

“And I spent decades learning about what it would take to move our country forward — including people who clearly didn’t vote for me — to try to make sure we dealt with a lot of these hard issues that are right around the corner like robotics and artificial intelligence and things that are really going to be upending the economy for the vast majority of Americans, to say nothing of the rest of the world.”

 

“So I’m now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”

The Mission - as defined by her website - is as follows (emphasis added):

Onward Together is dedicated to advancing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election. By encouraging people to organize, get involved, and run for office, Onward Together will advance progressive values and work to build a brighter future for generations to come.

 

Citizen engagement at every level is central to a strong and vibrant democracy. In recent months, we've seen what's possible when people come together to resist bullying, hate, falsehoods, and divisiveness, and stand up for a fairer, more inclusive America.

 

From the Women's March to airports where communities are welcoming immigrants and refugees to town hall meetings in every community, Americans are speaking up and speaking out like never before.

 

The challenges we face as a country are real. But there's no telling what we can achieve if we approach the fights ahead with the passion and determination we feel today, and bring that energy into 2017, 2018, 2020, and beyond.

 

Onward!

Onward Together will start by supporting five groups, including Swing Left, Emerge America, Color of Change, Indivisible and Run for Something.

In some cases will provide direct funding to the organizations to help grow their audiences. The funding - it appears - will come from you America and yuour kind donations...

“In recent months, we’ve seen what’s possible when people stand up for a fairer, big-hearted, more inclusive America,”

 

“Chip in today to help Onward Together support the people and organizations championing the vision that earned 66 million votes in the last election.”

“Resist, insist, persist, enlist.” - Hillary Rodham Clinton

The resistance is building.
