Every time a new partner joins the Onward Together family, I'm reminded of how many people believe that, when we work together, we have the power to make our country better.
That belief is also why I'm asking you to give to Onward Together this Giving Tuesday. With one contribution of $25 or more, you’re investing in an entire generation of progressive organizations -- including two new partner groups that I look forward to telling you more about soon.
With your help, we can not only support our current partners, but find even more groups that are already doing the most good and need a boost from a team like ours.
Give to Onward Together today -- and then stay tuned to hear about our newest partners:

Before you sit down and share a meal with loved ones today, I’d like to ask you to consider making a donation that will be evenly split among 12 groups working to protect children and families who have been affected by the administrations cruel border policies.
More than a year after the first reports of children being taken away from their parents at the border, there is still so much work to do, from reuniting families to making sure that those seeking asylum have the resources they need to navigate a complicated system.
Too often, it feels as though all we can do is read the news and be heartbroken. I’m grateful that, over and over again, this team has chosen to take action.
This Thanksgiving, please make a contribution to support 12 groups working on protecting and reuniting families at the border:
Thank you -- I hope your holiday is warm and wonderful,Hillary
No matter where we or our ancestors are from, millions of Americans will sit down together to break bread today.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 28, 2019
It's a wonderful reminder that our country is both a place and an idea—where anyone can find a home to breathe free.
Happy Thanksgiving, Hillary, to you and your lovely family and to everyone here.

Hillary Rodham Clinton came to King’s College London last week for an event in conversation with former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, former US Secretary of State and the first female presidential candidate of a major US political party, came to King’s College London last week for an event in conversation with former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
Organised by the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership and the Policy Institute, the event was the first in a new King’s series called World Questions, which aims to promote new perspectives, insights and solutions from global leaders with first-hand experience of making change. The discussion between Secretary Clinton and Julia Gillard centred on barriers to women’s leadership, the increasingly toxic culture for women in politics and The Book of Gutsy Women, Clinton’s new book written with her daughter, Chelsea.
Gillard kicked off the discussion, taking us back 25 years to the then First Lady’s speech in Beijing, where she famously said: “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights”. While both leaders acknowledged that much progress had since been made on political and legal rights, Clinton stressed the multiple barriers still faced by women in the workplace and at home:

Read more >>>>> Washington (CNN)Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said "many, many, many people" were pressuring her to consider a 2020 presidential bid, but held that it is "absolutely not in my plans.""I, as I say, never, never, never say never and I will certainly tell you I'm under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it," Clinton told BBC Radio. "But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans."CNN previously reported that Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee, has been taking calls from other members of her party asking her to enter the 2020 race, but it remains unlikely she would do so.Clinton said in March that she would not run for president again in 2020, but her reentry into the public sphere with taunts aimed at President Donald Trump in recent weeks has stoked speculation she could be considering a rematch with the President.
Last week, we saw an incredible slate of Democratic candidates win local and statewide elections -- including those who helped turn both chambers of the Virginia state legislature blue for the first time in a decade. But while we've made strides to take back seats like these over the last few years, we're still behind.
Today, on National Run for Office Day, one Onward Together partner has a simple solution: Recruit an entirely new class of young, progressive first-time candidates to run for seats on city councils, school boards, state legislatures, and more.
Running for office is one of the most powerful ways that you can work with the people in your community to come up with real, meaningful solutions to the problems we all face. It's also one of the most rewarding things you'll ever do -- I should know. And when more Democrats run, we all win. In just three years, Run for Something has elected 297 people across 45 states, and supported thousands of candidates whose turnout efforts boosted voter participation up and down the ballot.
If you're ready to run for office or are interested in learning more about what it takes to run, please go to www.RunforOfficeDay.com and get started. The team at Run for Something will walk you through the process:

Perhaps Trump was confused and thought Yanukovich was still president of Ukraine. This is straight out of his playbook.
Trump apparently wanted Ukraine to investigate Hillary Clinton in addition to the Bidens: State Department officialChris Sommerfeldt6-8 minutes
He just can’t get over Hillary Clinton.Before giving U.S. military aid to Ukraine, President Trump wanted “nothing less” than for the European country to announce an investigation targeting Clinton in addition to one targeting Joe Biden and his son, according to a senior State Department official.George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state for European affairs, made the bombshell revelation during his closed-door deposition on Oct. 15, testifying he was told that Trump used Clinton’s name as “shorthand” for the investigation he wanted President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch into a debunked right-wing conspiracy theory claiming anti-Trump Ukrainians interfered in the 2016 election.Kent’s deposition, a transcript of which was released Thursday, marks the first time Clinton’s name has come up in the context of Trump’s desired Ukrainian investigation of the 2016 U.S. election. The mention suggests Trump wanted the probe to target the former Democratic presidential candidate one way or another.Kent said Gordon Sondland, Trump’s handpicked ambassador to the European Union, had conveyed the Clinton message to him and other diplomats after speaking to the president on Sept. 7.Read more >>>>

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she knew there was concern about President Bill Clinton nominating a 60-year-old to the Supreme Court when he picked her in 1993.
“Some people thought I was too old for the job,” Ginsburg said Wednesday night during a conversation with Clinton and Hillary Clinton at Georgetown Law Center in Washington. She paused a beat.
“If you worried about my age, it was unnecessary,” she said.Read more >>>>
Ginsburg is now 86 and entering her 27th year on the court. She and the Clintons reminisced about the old days at an annual lecture named for her.
Bill Clinton repeated that he knew within 10 minutes of interviewing then-Judge Ginsburg that he would offer her the job, although his first choice was New York Gov. Mario Cuomo.
Hillary Clinton said she liked to think she had something to do with Ginsburg’s nomination as well. “I may have expressed an opinion or two about people he should move up” the list of possibilities, she said.

His daughter Adia quoted Eminem. Kweisi Mfume quoted Sartre and Frost. Staffer, Harry Spikes quoted Bruce Lee and The Lion King. And, of course, many quoted Elijah Eugene Cummings, aka 'Bobby.' It was a celebratory sendoff for a true Lion of the House. The recessional was 'Lift Every Voice and Sing' as you have never heard it before. We will not see his like.
