Subject: Afraid

Tisya,

Donald Trump has been president for 3 years, and there are a lot of people out there who are afraid.

They’re afraid for the children who have to go through lockdown drills at school. They’re afraid for families separated at the border. They’re afraid for women, for people of color, for the LGBTQ+ community, and for anyone who is marginalized under this administration.

It’s easy to give into our fear and pull back, but the truth is — fighting back is an act of patriotism.

We built this nation by fighting back against a king. We saved this nation by fighting the scourge of slavery. We rebuilt this nation’s economy by fighting back against the Great Depression with the New Deal. We protected this nation by fighting back against fascism once, and we can do it again.

This is when Americans are at their best — by taking on the big battles to fight for their country and their neighbors.

This is not a time for small ideas. This is a time to fight, and that’s exactly what I’ll do.

Tisya, I need your voice in this fight — and with only a few days until Iowa, we need your help more than ever before. Can you chip in $100 or anything you can to help fight for an America that works for working people?

If you’ve saved payment info with ActBlue Express, your donation will process automatically:

I’m in this fight because I believe that we can build an America where everyone has value. We can build an America where we put people, not corporations, first. We can build an America that invests in every child, no matter where they come from or where they live.

I believe in what we can do together, Tisya. That’s why I’m asking you to fight with me, because we can decide the future of this country — not just for the next four or eight years, but for generations to come.

This is our moment in history. We can choose hope over fear and fight to make our country work for working people, but I can’t do it without you.

That’s why I’m asking for your help, Tisya. Can you chip in again to help continue the fight?

Thanks for being a part of this,

Elizabeth

Subject: Elizabeth’s ready to fight

Tisya,

Tonight, Elizabeth got on the debate stage, took on an arrogant billionaire, and won.

And with your help, she’ll do it again in November.

Chip in $100 or whatever you can right now to support Elizabeth Warren and this movement for big, structural change.

If you’ve saved payment info with ActBlue Express, your donation will process automatically:

Elizabeth’s not afraid to fight. And even more importantly, she knows how to win.

In tonight’s debate, a billionaire learned a lesson that’s kept Wall Street bankers up at night for years: When Elizabeth fights for working people, she wins.

And she’s not fighting for small ideas — she’s fighting for big, structural change.

Fighting for a Green New Deal to save our planet. Fighting for Medicare for All to save our people. Fighting for a wealth tax to invest in an entire generation of young people.

If you liked what you saw on the debate stage tonight, and you’re ready to see Elizabeth take on Donald Trump and win, chip in $100 or whatever you can right now to power this campaign forward.

Thanks,

Team Warren

Subject: Tisya, I’d like to share some big news

Tisya, I’d like to share some big news.

This morning, I got an update from our team: We received so many grassroots contributions during the debate, we blew right past our goal of $7 million before the Nevada caucuses — woo-hoo!

Tisya, I’m deeply grateful to each and every one of you who has helped our campaign reach this goal. It’s already making a powerful impact on the future of our grassroots movement.

But with 98% of the delegates still up for grabs, there’s a lot of work to be done — and now we’re looking to make even bigger investments in our organizing and advertising programs ahead of Super Tuesday. So we’re increasing our goal to $10 million before the Nevada caucuses — and with your help, we can get there.

I’m fighting for big, structural change. If you’re with me, will you chip in $100 or whatever you can today?

I believe that 2020 is the chance for us to end corruption in Washington, level the playing field, and make the big, structural change working families so desperately need.

This is our time to win the fight for a Green New Deal and save our planet. Our time to win the fight for Medicare for All and save our people. Our time to win the fight for a wealth tax and invest in an entire generation of young Americans.

The only mistake we can make right now is to be timid and let this opportunity pass us by.

This is our moment to dream big, fight hard, and win. And I need you with me, Tisya.

Can I count on you to make another donation right now? Every grassroots contribution has a powerful impact.

Thanks for being a part of this,

Elizabeth
