PETITION BACKGROUND This petition is to encourage MoveOn.org to hold a membership vote to endorse a Democratic candidate for President before the Iowa Caucus.
On the “Run Warren Run” website MoveOn states:
“We will encourage all candidates to embrace the Warren agenda on the economy, pursue diplomacy over war, fight to get big money out of politics and address climate change, and present an agenda that speaks to the growing demands of the Movement for Black Lives, the need for immigration reform, and the whole of the progressive coalition.”
No candidate role models these qualities better than Bernie Sanders. A large portion of his campaign platform is in line with the agenda sort after by MoveOn.
This petition encourages a similar voting process as recently carried out by Democracy for America.
