Help Send Ark Berniecrat to the DNC

$2,000 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 60 people in 37 months

My name is Dorianne Dias-Koonopakarn. I am an educator, a wife in a bi-racial marriage, and mother to four brilliant children.

I have the extraordinary honor to represent Arkansas Progressives as a delegate for Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention this July in Philidelphia. I would greatly appreciate a donation of $27 (or any other amount) to help cover my travel expenses.

Unlike Bernie, I am not a life-long politician. I planned on being the change I wanted to see in the world and raising my children to be the kind of people I would want to live with. However...

For me, it started with Citizens United. I scoffed. I laughed. NO WAY would anyone legally consider corporations people! Not even the Republicans would go for that. Well, we all know how that turned out. I put myself on the path to understanding what happened. How did we run so far afield?

Fast forward to the second happiest day of 2015 when my husband told me that Bernie was running for president (the first was the birth of my second son). We were immediately immersed in the task of discovering how to help.

Bernie is just one person. While we have many prevailing social myths about how it takes just one person to change the world, the reality is that it takes at least two: you and me.

Thank you for reading. Peace and blessings. <3

A YYYYYUUUGE thanks to everyone who donated.

There were expenses that I didn't expect, so please know that every dollar helped.

Please be on the lookout for Berniecrat fundraisers as they are the next stage of the political revolution.

In solidarity,
Dorianne

You may not be better than anyone else, but you're not less than either. When you really understand this, you not only want better for yourself, you want better for others. #bethechange

One week left!

Like I said at the beginning, the political revolution is bigger than anyone person.

No matter who the nominee is, there is still plenty of work to do. If we want true democracy, there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of small ways we can participate everyday.

Thank you for helping me fight the good fight!

So...

All afternoon, people have been asking me about my thoughts on Bernie backing Hillary.

My take is that the political revolution ain't over until the fat lady sings, and honey, I ain't even picked out a song yet. ;)
