Hillary Clinton is returning to public life, and she has plans to help those get their voices heard. On Monday, Clinton announced her new political action organization, Onward Together, which will raise funds for five progressive groups.
During an event a few weeks ago, Clinton said since she lost the Presidential election and is now a private citizen, she is part of the resistance movement.
In a series of tweets, she announced Onward Together writing, “I believe more fiercely than ever that citizen engagement at every level is central to a strong and vibrant democracy.”
“To support this wave of grassroots organizing, we’re launching Onward Together, an organization dedicated to advancing the progressive vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election. Onward Together will work to build a brighter future for generations to come by supporting groups that encourage people to organize and run for office.”
Five specific progressive groups will be supported by Onward Together and they are: Swing Left, which targets vulnerable House Republican incumbents; Emerge America, which will train Democratic women to run for office; Color of Change, which fights for criminal justice reform and racial justice; Indivisible, a group that’s mobilizing a “resistance” against Trump; and Run for Something, which helps potential candidates find tools to guide their bids.
In addition to the political group, in March, Clinton took on a new slogan, “resist, insist, persist, enlist.”
