Re: Vote For Who Can't This Yr. -

Image may contain: text that says 'HE'

This has not been a good year for most of us.
 
We’ve had to endure so much in 2020.
 
We have endured a pandemic that has taken away over 225,000 of our loved ones and fundamentally changed the way we live our lives.
 
We have endured an economic catastrophe that has thrown us hurtling into the deep end of uncertainty; where we’ve been forced to make unthinkable choices despite being the wealthiest nation on earth.
 
We have been forced to contend w/ systems of racial oppression designed to impose unequal justice upon black & brown Americans.
 
We’ve been forced to contend with vicious tribalism & hate that is fueled even further by foreign adversaries who wish to do us harm.
 
We’ve lost heroes, from first responders & medical professionals to titans of the civil rights movement &  champions of equal justice.
 
I want you to vote in the next seven days if you haven’t already.
 
Vote because of who can’t this year.
 
Vote for the chairs that will be empty at Thanksgiving dinner this year.
 
Vote for the people who are in food lines, for the people who have lost their homes, for the people who are forced to choose between their prescriptions & the electric bill, & for the people who know that choice will soon be waiting for them.
 
Vote for George Floyd, for Breonna Taylor, for Ahmaud Arbery & the countless victims of racist policing who deserve justice.
 
Vote for the people who work tirelessly in our hospitals -- the people who picked up extra shifts, who skipped birthdays & holidays to take care of our families & our friends.
 
Vote for John Lewis, for Joseph Lowery & for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
 
Vote.
 
I can’t promise you that voting will fix everything, but I can promise you that choosing not to vote will not fix anything.
 
If you have already voted, you still have work to do. 
 
You likely have friends, family & neighbors who haven’t voted yet. 
 
You probably have an hour or two to spare in the next seven days to pick up the phone & call people who haven’t voted yet.
 
Democracy is not a spectator sport or a passive system that runs w/o input. It only works when you & I consciously decide to keep it running.
 
Things won’t be suddenly better on November 4th. The new way forward won’t arrive overnight. That’s why we have something else -- something big planned that you’ll hear about in eight days.
 
Until then, we have a mission. And if we succeed, we can experience something that I know many of us feel we’re lacking.
 
Hope.
 
 
Forward,
-Andrew Yang

We Can't Afford A Weak Stimulus Plan:

The momentum is shifting.
 
The American people have come to understand the good that a universal basic income can do for all of us in this pandemic.
 
 
Humanity Forward supports a stimulus plan which would provide $1200 per month to every American adult for six months.
 
There are many plans circulating Washington that would be good for Americans, but a six month package would provide the short term relief we need while also demonstrating our case for a permanent UBI.
 
The window to achieve this plan is narrowing.
 
Piecemeal measures that are being discussed right now in D.C. are better than nothing, but they fail to secure most struggling families for longer than a month.
 
We can't afford a weak plan this time.
 
 
I'm forever grateful for your support.
 
Ever forward,
-Andrew Yang

How does a peaceful transition of power take place after a presidential election?

 

I'm joined tomorrow by Julian Ha, partner w/ executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles, to discuss that in a Fireside Chat moderated by Zach Graumann.

 

Julian has been involved in an effort to promote AAPIs for senior Biden Administration positions -- we'll discuss the importance of the process, as well as what that could mean for our movement after helping to elect Joe Biden to the White House.

 

I want you to join us tomorrow night! We aren't looking past the election just yet, but it's never too early to start thinking about how we can best serve the American people.

 

Fireside Chat on Presidential Transition

W/ Andrew Yang & Julian Ha

Your contribution to join tomorrow's event will be used to help get out the vote in this year's swing states in order to make the transition of power we're discussing possible!

 
See you soon,

Let's Talk About The Debate: ...from Tuesday night.

In a year marred by social distress, economic collapse & the deadliest pandemic in living memory, Americans expected to turn on their TVs & see a substantive debate about how to lead our nation through this moment of darkness.

 
That didn’t happen.
 
Instead, we watched the president do all that he could to interrupt, obfuscate, sow hatred & spread dangerous misinformation. Hate groups cheered while the rest of us sighed in disgust.
 
Most of us believe this is the worst chapter for America in our lifetimes already, & there was only one person on the debate stage who was reaching through the fray to speak to Americans directly.
 
We’ve got to do all we can to restore our national conversation to be one of civility & problem solving. It’s clear that the only way for us to do that right now starts w/ winning in November w/ Joe & our Humanity Forward candidates.
 
I’m not going to ask you for money... . 
 
Every day, the contributions you make to this movement bring me hope that we can do what is necessary to recover from this calamitous year. For that, you deserve my thanks many times over.
 
I also want to let you know what is to come. We’re about to undergo some of the most tumultuous weeks of this year - even w/ what we’ve had to endure so far in 2020.
 
We have 33 days left before Election Day. We have longer than that before we know the winners, & beyond that we’ve still got to take on the fundamental challenges our country is facing.
 
We are going to ask if you can do more in the coming weeks. I hope you understand that it’s not because we take your support for granted, or that what you’ve done isn’t already appreciated.
 
You can also expect to hear from me over the coming weeks in emails that don’t ask you for anything -- except to stay engaged and remember why we’re fighting. I want you to know that while fundraising is important to achieve our goals, this mission of ours is so much bigger.
 
The consequences of the next few months will echo for years, & until we can have debates that don't distract from what the American people need in times of crisis, we are going to do everything we can.

 

Thank you for being on this journey w/ us. We couldn’t be where we are w/o you.
 
Yours truly,
-Andrew Yang

Friday night, our nation lost a hero in Justice Ginsburg.
 
Justice Ginsburg was an icon & a trailblazer not just for women in the legal profession, but for all of us. For decades, she fought to expand fundamental human rights to all Americans. She dedicated her life to making an impact - & inspired countless others to do the same.
 
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a remarkable leader; one who changed this country for the better in so many ways.
 
It’s a tragedy that, now, when we should be mourning & celebrating her life & work, our attention must turn to the very real possibility of the Senate rushing through a Trump appointee before the election. It’s unbearably tragic that this incredible woman, on her deathbed, feIt the need to comment on the presidency.
 
All we can do is hope she felt peace, respect her last wish, & do what she showed us how to do all those years: fight.
 
This is a broken system. We alone can fix it.
 
Voting is already underway, & it’s time to let the people decide who should appoint the next justice. A rushed confirmation process - especially one designed to have a new justice in place to rule on election results - would only further undermine the faith the American people have in the Supreme Court & in Congress itself.
 
We need to overhaul our system to restore that faith, to use term limits to bring predictability & rationality to the appointment of new justices. But right now, we need to let the people decide, & we need to make sure that people turn out to vote to do just that.
 
Make sure you're registered to vote. Request a mail-in ballot. Show up to the polls. Make a plan.
 
So much of what Justice Ginsburg fought for her entire career is on the ballot this fall. Let us be inspired by the arc of her life & her career as we carry on the fight to defend our human rights. 
 
Take that sadness, & translate it into action.
