2020 and the Party We’re Building Together
Happenings - Week of May 6, 2019
The last few days have been a whirlwind since we announced our endorsement for Senator Elizabeth Warren for President in the Democratic primary. We were immensely proud for WFP to have the opportunity to introduce Senator Warren at her 20,000-person rally in Washington Square Park, and to speak about our endorsement and the work ahead to CNN, the New York Times and many other outlets. We’ve been thrilled to see the response from thousands of WFP supporters who have already signed up to organize with WFP and Senator Warren.
Senator Warren is putting forward bold ideas to rewrite the rules of our rigged system and transform the nation to work for the many. Her proposals will make a difference in the lives of millions of working people. And she is an unrivaled storyteller and teacher who can explain to America how the system got broken, who broke it, and how to fix it. We’re eager to build a grassroots army for her.

Turning Focus to Defeating Republicans, WFP Offers Cuomo Ballot Line
With the budget deadline just days away, legislative leaders and Governor Cuomo are still locked in negotiations over critical progressive priorities, while real-estate lobbyists and other corporate special interests are doing all in their power to put the brakes on our progress. We can't let them win. We have a deadline of our own on April 1st, and the grassroots contributions we raise between now and then will enable us to fight even harder for the progressive vision that New Yorkers demand and deserve.
These activists have reached more than 10,000 voters with #WFP4theMany - ready to join them?
