Hillary Clinton Receives $$ from Walmart

I've heard Sec. Clinton talk a lot about helping working families lately, but it's tough to believe she's serious when the family that owns Walmart is funding her campaign. Will you sign our petition calling on Hillary Clinton to return these campaign donations?
Alice Walton, owner and heir of notoriously anti-union Walmart, just gave a Clinton campaign group more than $350,000 on top of her maximum personal donation to the campaign. In fact, I just found out that a Walmart lobbyist even held a fundraiser for Sec. Clinton.
We have known for a long time that Sec. Clinton remained silent about anti-worker actions during her time on Walmart's board. And these recent donations show that her ties with Walmart remain strong. We're calling on her to show that she's accountable to working people, not corporations, by returning these funds to the Walmart Waltons.
So far, Sec. Clinton has gladly accepted these donations, despite the fact that Walmart was recently found guilty by the National Labor Relations Board of targeting workers who stood up for their right to speak out. The case revealed a massive worker surveillance mechanism, through which Walmart even partnered with Lockheed Martin and the FBI to track workers and activists.

Political Revolution 101 Event

Feb. 18, 2016.

Zach Newman, Sac for Bernie, at the Feb. 18, meeting. 

Duane Campbell, I am the Bernie Liaison for DSA- Democratic Socialists of America.  We are delighted to be in this campaign.  Bernie is saying almost all the right things.  He has made jobs, and equality, campaign issues. 

DSA is the largest democratic socialist organization in the nation.
Bernie  is making the best case for social democracy  in the last 100 years.

The response is humbling and exciting.

Over 43 % of Democrats polled in Iowa say they are socialists.
Over 50% of voters  under 30, when polled, say they are socialists.
For us, as democratic socialists, this is our dream come true.  Democratic Socialism has come out of the closet and into the mainstream.

Next steps.
Contact the campaign.   Join us.  There is work to be done.
Contact: Sacramento Progressive Alliance, Campus Progressive Alliance, DSA, Sac for Bernie.
