On Monday (5/15/2017) Hillary Clinton officially launched a new political group called Onward Together. According to the group’s web site, its primary mission is to “promote progressive values” and give a voice to the 66 million voters who supported Hillary’s presidential campaign in 2016.
Organized as a 501(c)(4) group with the IRS, a designation for social welfare nonprofits, the group has begun its fundraising campaign in earnest. Already tens of thousands of voters on Hillary’s email list have been contacted to contribute to the group.
Energized by the antics of President Trump, Onward Together speaks to many of the same ideals promoted during Hillary’s campaign:
In recent months we’ve seen what’s possible when people come together to resist bullying, hate, falsehoods, and divisiveness, and stand up for a fairer, more inclusive America.
The challenges we face as a country are real. But there’s no telling what we can achieve if we approach the fights ahead with the passion and determination we feel today, and bring that energy into 2017, 2018, 2020, and beyond.
It remains to be seen if Democrats who personally blame Hillary (and not the Russians) for losing the election will support her new group. At the very least, Onward Together can serve as a focal point for the numerous anti-Trump interest groups and political viewpoints currently shouting for attention.
