Hi there,

It's Jarvis -- your PFA South Carolina State Director. I’ve seen with my own eyes the hope people have on the ground here in South Carolina. We need all the resources we can garner to continue talking to every undecided voter up until the polls close this Saturday.

We have the candidate, we have the team, we just need the resources. We’ll have a strong performance in South Carolina, no doubt, but the challenge for this campaign is continuing past Super Tuesday. We need $13 million to continue down a victorious path, and today, I need you to pitch in $5 to help us get there. [[link removed]]

This campaign has given me the opportunity to be a part of a community and work for a candidate who sees the world the way I do, and the way we must see it if we’re going to heal the country and turn the page on systemic racism in America.

Growing up, I lived in a neighborhood impacted by poverty, a neighborhood in which I lost countless friends and relatives to gun violence, where I was bussed to school far away because the schools in my neighborhood sent more kids to prison than college. Where families couldn't feed their children healthy, nutritious food because the food desert made it incredibly difficult to buy groceries.

I grew up with leaders who blamed these very families for their own poverty, rather than addressing the systemic violence and oppression plaguing my community. But, despite everything -- all odds and obstacles -- I don’t see poverty or pain. I see resilient families taking care of their children to the best of their ability. I see potential, love, and community.

When I met Pete, I knew he was someone who didn't look at communities like mine and only see their problems, but also their tenacity and hope. [[link removed]]

I listened to Pete talk about leaving the life he was creating to move back to South Bend, a "dying city," because he saw through its problems to its potential. After that, I knew Pete was someone to pay attention to. The way he focused on creating housing, lifting up community members, and creating leadership spaces for black women is the way we need to think about our future. We deserve a president who supports our strength.

The race is just getting started. If you’re able to, can you please chip in any amount you can to help us reach our $13 million goal? [[link removed]]
