Raising Our Future PAC

Happy 4th of July.

Like (seemingly) most everyone in America, I watched Hamilton last night. It’s a great reminder. Our founders were flawed, hypocritical, self interested and occasionally outright terrible people.

So what is their legacy?

Their true legacy is giving us the system and tools to run this country as we see fit. I doubt George Washington would be terribly supportive of our platform. But who actually cares? He’s dead.

This is our time.

The citizens have bent this country to the times for 250 years. In four months we bend it again.

Enjoy your day. Tomorrow we get back to forming a more perfect union.

This is why elections are important. The names on this letter are new legislators. Many of whom we supported in 2018. ... See MoreSee Less

This has been a trying two months for all of us we hope this finds you healthy and as happy as can be in our new normal.

But of course, this is not normal and “happy” has become the ultimate sliding scale. Over 36 million Americans have lost their jobs. Even more have seen their hours cuts or salaries reduced. In the blink of an eye, our kids have gone from overscheduled to watching those weird mid-70’s Disney movies with Don Knotts.

We are … surviving, doing our best to stay healthy, pay our bills, and keep our families from melting down. The last thing on your mind is fundraising for the 2020 election. Frankly, it hasn’t been our minds either. This is a PAC that is run by working parents. We are going through the same things right now. On our board, we’re struggling with furlough, job loss, cut salaries, special needs kids, and homeschooling … and we’re tired. But we are also acutely aware of why it matters who leads and who is serving in Congress.

That’s where you come in. If all our followers donated $5 today, we could support 20 more candidates in November.

The members we helped elect in 2018 have been vital to the gains working families have made in the last year and a half. Our alumni have pushed for working families to be included in COVID relief packages. They have worked for hazard pay for our first responders and frontline retail workers. They have pushed for help with childcare in a time which has seen our long standing systems upended. They have pushed for the resources our schools need to adjust to this new and awful reality of distance learning.

We are asking you today to help fund our 2020 election fund because $5 more a month from just fifteen of us is enough to give a $1,000 donation to a candidate who is going to fight for us in Congress.

If you don’t have any more to give right now, we hear you. If you can’t give financially, give us your voice. Share our page with your friends and talk about how we need parent-centric policies in this country.

As the nation continues to cope with this pandemic, we can’t leave families behind. Our small investments now can ensure that we come out of this awful time stronger.
We are raising our future.

Hi friends and supporters of Raising Our Future PAC.

What a ride we are on. No ask or call to action today - just a signal of solidarity and a recognition that parenting during a pandemic is hard AF.

We see you raising your kids. We see you working to keep all the balls in the air. We know how much work there is to be done in your homes and how much work our country needs to do. You're seen.

Let yourself feel and give yourself grace. We're with you in spirit, in frustration, in grief, and in solidarity. Stay safe. <3

- Jewelyn Cosgrove, Treasurer
