This is the beginning.

We took to the streets.

We locked arms.

We marched together to speak out against hate, against fear, against policies that will send our country backwards.

2017 felt overwhelming at times. It's not easy holding the line against constant attacks.

Every movement is built step by step. Our movement is built on the courage to fight for our values, for each other.

2018 isn't only about winning back Congress. It's about building a resistance for working families, for an affordable education, for health care that is there when you need it just by virtue of living in America, and to defend our planet.

It's about protecting Dreamers. It’s about defending and expanding Medicare. It’s about fighting for our families and for American jobs. It’s about driving action on climate disruption.

2018 is about standing together, about organizing and building our grassroots movement in coffee shops and living rooms, with big rallies and one-on-one conversations with our friends and neighbors.

The race to take back our country is on, to elect progressives from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine, and in every corner of America. To save America from Donald Trump and his Republican allies' disastrous agenda.

My promise to you, my resolution for 2018, is to be there every step of the way. I'll never stop fighting.

Let's do this.

Jeff
