As a lifelong educator, back-to-school season has always been one of my favorite times of year. I love the smell of freshly waxed floors and new notebooks. I love the anticipation you feel in an empty classroom, moments before the students file in.
After a year of remote and hybrid learning, students and educators across the country are excited to be back in their classrooms. Still, even as families look forward to the months ahead, they are anxious about the unknown.
In-person learning is essential. That's why Joe and Kamala made it a top priority to pass the American Rescue Plan, providing the support schools need to get kids back in the classroom and help keep both students and educators safe.
We've come so far, but if we're going to continue building on our progress in the months and years ahead, we need to not only defend our existing Democratic majorities, we need to build on them. The Democratic National Committee is the only party organization dedicated to electing Democrats from the school board to the Senate, so I have to ask:
Will you donate $7, or whatever you can, to the DNC today to help elect leaders who will put children and families first?
This back-to-school season is more than just a fresh start for our students -- it's a new beginning for all of us. It's our chance to build back better, together, for our children and our future.
Joe and Kamala have bold plans to transform education, alleviate the crushing costs of childcare, create millions of good-paying jobs, set a national standard for paid family and medical leave, and more. They're working with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to pass legislation that will give families what they need to thrive -- not just survive.
As a critical member of this team, you know how important Democratic majorities are to sustaining our progress. We're going to need your help to make the Biden-Harris agenda a reality, which is why I'm reaching out today.
If you're able, make a $7 contribution to the DNC today to help elect Democrats who will fight for education, affordable childcare, good-paying jobs, and more.
Thank you for your support,
P.S. This back-to-school season, we must recommit ourselves to keeping our schools safe and open, and supporting our community of students, parents, and educators. Pitch in $7 to elect Democratic leaders up and down the ticket who will support Joe and Kamala's bold agenda.
