Sanders delegate DNC convention

$4,500 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 61 people in 32 months
I have been elected as a nationalso delegate for Bernie Sanders. We are required to stay at the hotel chosen by the DNC, it is prohibitively expensive and the convention requires a 5 night stay. Like many Bernie Sanders supporters, I'm not wealthy and the expense is worrisome given that I will not be able to work that week either. Any unused funds will be donated to the sanders campaign or the campaign of down ballot candidates for congress. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. In solidarity,

Well it's been an exhausting year. Like most strong Sanders supporters I'm dissatisapointed , frustrated, and frayed...but after DNC convention newly hopeful. I will be writing about my experiences, what I've learned, and where hope lies...and I have much hope with a renewed sense of purpose. Thanks to all my followers, supporters, and friends...after much needed break I'll begin again. Talk in a week or so.

So 5 hours in...the DNC is trying to throw a love fest for HRC, they aren't succeeding. We are planning a major floor fight on no TPP as part of the platform. I have talked to alot of press. One point I brought up alot is this: if HRC wants to be taken seriously by progressives why nominate Tim Kaine instead of a Warren wing progressive; if HRC is serious about party unity, why not replace DWS with a genuine progressive? More to come. Can't wait for next Wikileaks release.

Thanks so much to all the great supporters of senator Sanders, and personal friends for helping achieve full funding for the DNC convention. I pledge to give my all for the movement to take back our nation, and to adress the suite of existential crises facing our country, our species, and our biosphere. Only in solidarity can we defeat the neoliberal oligarchs.

Did you hear what Jane said to Bernie at the end of his speech to delegates? She said, "They don't know your name is being put in for nomination - that is the concern". It sounds like this is still a contested convention. Please share with fellow delegates. We need you to stand up and fight for Bernie at the roll call!

GO for it - Do everything you can for Bernie. Hopefully horrible things will happen to Hillary and they will HAVE to select Bernie instead. He is really our ONLY hope for people and for the planet. The alternatives are both unthinkable.

Glad to help out for a fellow NJ delegate. Make sure Bernie knows that he was not being booed...it was when he said Hillary's name. I am not sure if you are planning on staying with the Democrats, I know Bernie will be very convincing but Bernie has to understand that the VEEP that Hillary has chosen is not in the best interest of the people. Hillary taking Debbie Wasserman Schultz into her campaign...that was just another slap in the face. We think that Bernie can beat both Hillary and Trump but if he isn't willing to, there are enough Independents, disenchanted Dems and Republicans that will vote for other than Hillary.... We want Bernie to do his speech and walk out if he isn't the nominee....so hope you can let him know.

Bernie people are camping all over the place to save money. One campsite is in NJ. Suggest that and then many Bernie people are offering rides as they are one their way.

Hang in there, using social media to help get you funded. If everyone donates a little each, you'll be funded. Good luck in Philly!

Be a big shot campaign donor and join the #OnePercentClub. Help fund this delegate by providing 1/100th of his remaining balance. We can do this, folks, if we stand together and say #EnoughIsENOUGH!!
