We will not go quietly into the night. The Democratic Party and establishment-faithful wish that we would, but with or without the presidency we have more work to do.
There are millions of us, carrying on Bernie Sanders’ work, whether it’s running for office, defending progressive champions like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, pushing for healthcare or serious climate change legislation, or even passing on the stories of our movement for generations to come. We have to keep this alive.
And that’s why we’re creating Us Day.
Every year on April 8th, we put our Bernie yard signs out and we signal to those in our midst that we’re still out here, we still have solidarity, and we are each still working in our own ways to achieve dignity and human rights for all.
April 8th, 2020 was the day that Bernie Sanders suspended his presidential campaign, and the day that he passed the torch on to all of us. It’s the day that “Not me, us” became more than just a campaign slogan.
In the future, we’ll have an interactive map where we can all register our Us Day annual events as we begin to organize them regionally, and we’ll use this space as a beacon to publish updates that our Bernie family should know about.
Are you ready to make your “Not Me, Us” promise? Tell us why you intend to carry on the work of Bernie Sanders and pledge to keep the movement growing.
