Let the DNC Know: Democrats Must Ban Dark Money from the Primaries

In solidarity,

This year’s Democratic Primaries were perverted by an unprecedented avalanche of big money spent against progressive candidates in races across the country. Demand that the DNC take action when it meets tomorrow


On Thursday, the Resolution Committee of the DNC will consider a motion to ban dark money from Democratic primaries.This resolution, introduced by progressives, would severely curtail the influence of big-money interests, corporate donors and Republican billionaires in Democratic primaries, and pave the way toward primary elections that truly reflect the will of the voters.

Although the Democratic Party’s official line is to oppose the influence of dark money in politics, we anticipate that many influential party members will oppose the resolution on Thursday. They have enjoyed the support of big-money donors for many election cycles and want to protect their interests. That’s why we’re asking PDA supporters to raise their voices in support of the resolution.

Please click here to email the Democratic National Committee to ask that they pass Resolution 19 to ban dark money from Democratic primaries.

Please also phone them at 202-863-8000.
