A personal message from Ilhan Omar, Congresswoman for Minnesota's 5th district
We're in the midst of a new dawn in American history.
As we see the rising costs of healthcare, the crushing impact of the student loan crisis, and Donald Trump's bigotry reaching new heights every day, people are coming together across the country to fight back.
Nabilah Islam is a key leader in this movement, and that's why I'm endorsing her for Congress -- she's a fierce progressive who will fight for those who have been ignored and hurt by our political system for far too long.
I'm hoping you'll chip in $5 or $10 to her campaign -- she's running in one of the most competitive districts in the country, and she needs our help if she's going to join me in Congress →
Nabilah is a daughter of immigrants, a Bangladeshi American, and a bold progressive.
And she's making history -- Nabilah had to cancel her healthcare and put her student loans in forbearance just to continue her run. So she's petitioning the Federal Election Commission to break down the boundaries that prevent working-class Americans from running for office.
We haven't yet achieved the America we're fighting for because Congress doesn't reflect the people it represents -- and it's easy for the wealthy to quit their job to run for office because they have the resources they need to support themselves while campaigning. That's not a luxury we all have -- and it's a grave injustice that we need to change.
That's why I'm asking you to make a donation of $5 or $10 to Nabilah's historic campaign. It's time to build a broad, progressive movement in every corner of the country to fight for every American.
