Prolog began on November 9th, 2016.
Like the majority of Americans, we spent that day reeling from a loss—not only of an election, but of our sense of who we are as a country. We spoke to one another, trying to come to terms with this new reality without losing touch with what we love about this country.
We wanted to give something of ourselves in order to minimize the damage of what we were forced to confront that day. And we realized that our professional skills were the most valuable things we could contribute—and that we were not alone. All we needed was a central bank of names and contacts to use our unique skills to defeat the Republican majority in 2018.
We offer the best of ourselves to this collective vision for our country: a place where the poor are not forgotten, kindness overcomes greed, our air, earth and waters are respected and protected. We trust science, we love all people, we fear war. For now, we must be badly represented, by a person and a party who does not share our worldview. So be it. But 2018 is coming. This is not a moment for commentary. This is a moment for action.
To the professionals: thank you for joining us. We are stronger together. To the campaigns: we are with you. Call on us to do what we do best for the party we believe in.
