Support Nina Turner’s Tour of Florida

Last Summer in D.C., I had the honor of marching alongside Nina Turner and other Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) allies in the Summer for Progress coalition. We held a rousing press conference and rally with PDA Advisory Board Members Reps. Raul Grijalva and Keith Ellison, great friends Reps. Tulsi Gabbard and Pramila Jayapal, as well as close partners National Nurses United, Food and Water Watch, and Our Revolution among others. Nina Turner, the President of Our Revolution, did an amazing job emceeing the rally, then she led the march from the Capitol Building to the Democratic National Committee headquarters.

I stood by Nina as she delivered thousands of petitions in support of the People’s Platform to the Democratic National Committee, and then delivered a fiery impromptu speech about the need for the DNC to embrace progressive solutions to the challenges faced by every day Americans. We can always count on Nina to tell the truth in a powerful and inspiring manner. Make a donation is solidarity with Nina Turner’s Florida Tour. All donors who contribute $100 or more will be recognized as a Host Committee member.
