Today’s Action: Celebrate the wins of 2019 and get ready to work in 2020

It’s been a heck of a year. We followed up 2018’s historic blue wave with big Democratic wins in Kentucky (Governor) and Virginia (the entire freakin’ government), and your actions have made a difference in myriad ways from calling attention to the president’s atrocities and raising awareness of key issues to mobilizing voters and holding our elected officials accountable.

Oh, and we impeached Donald Trump.

None of these huge victories would have been possible without huge efforts from the grassroots, the OD Action community, and tens of millions of concerned Americans who demand better from our country. To say it’s been a big year is an understatement, but it’s no secret that the threat and harm from this regime continues. So 2020 needs to be even bigger.

So, your action for today is to celebrate the tremendous victories of 2019, recharge, and get ready to get back to work in 2020.

Because if we do, a year from now, we won’t just be celebrating a new year, we’ll be celebrating a new president.
