Message from the DNC

Office of the Secretary

Dear DNC Member,

Happy Earth Day! Democrats remain committed to curbing the economic and human toll that climate change is already taking on our country. While Democrats have made strides in ensuring the quality of our air, water, and land for future generations, Republicans running for president continue to ignore the science and deny that climate change is man-made, or even exists. You can learn more here.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that Harriet Tubman will be the first African-American and the second woman ever portrayed on the face of our country’s paper currency when she appears on the new $20 bill. So who talks about Harriet Tubman and the $20 bill in a serious and mature way, kids or Donald Trump? Watch this video to find out!

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the barring of transgender students from using the correct bathroom. Click here to find out more. When John Kasich (who is somehow still in the race) was asked about the passing of anti-LGBT “Right to Discriminate” laws, his response was “get over it.”DNC spokesman Mark Paustenbach said “John Kasich has now insulted Jewish people, young women, and victims of anti-LGBT discrimination. And that’s just in the past week…… so much for the GOP’s reasonable alternative to Trump and Cruz.”

New York’s primary this week had some troubling signs for the GOP. While seven in ten New York Democrats say they are energized by the primary process, six in ten New York Republicans think the primary has divided their party. DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement:“whether they voted for Senator Sanders or Secretary Clinton, Democrats voted for a candidate they respect and admire, Republicans are only voting against the candidate they dislike the most.”

Have a safe and happy weekend.

Best,

Stephanie
