Hi Bernard,

Congratulations!

You and the rest of Care2’s members have been working hard to elect candidates who support the environment, animals, and progressive causes -- and all of your hard work has paid off. You were a powerful force in last week’s US election: some of the worst enemies of the environment have been defeated, and some of its strongest supporters are moving into new positions of power.

  • Hundreds of Care2 members volunteered to travel to Congressman Richard Pombo’s district, walking door-to-door to spread the word that he had one of the worst voting records in Congress on the environment, women’s rights, and progressive causes. As Chair of the House Resources Committee, Richard Pombo proposed legislation to sell a quarter of the land managed by the National Park Service, tried to open the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, and worked to weaken the Endangered Species Act. Thanks in part to your efforts, Richard Pombo was defeated.

  • More than 1,000 Care2 members volunteered to make phone calls to voters in key Congressional and Senate races across the nation. These efforts helped to tip the balance, leading to many victories for friends of the environment.

  • Tens of thousands of Care2 members worked for clean elections.

  • Millions of Care2 members voted for candidates who will stand up for the environment, for human rights, and for what’s right.

Because of your efforts, the prospects are much brighter for progress on global warming, for protection of wilderness areas and our coastlines from drilling, for protection of the rights of women, and for the USA to be a global leader for human rights and peace.

In recent years, Care2 and its nonprofit allies have been forced to play defense, opposing repeated legislative efforts to damage the environment, to weaken protections for animals, to allow torture of political prisoners, to authorize warrantless wiretapping, to reduce the rights of women, and to allow lobbyists to buy political decisions. Standing up to these challenges has been important work, and the millions of actions taken by Care2 members have turned the tide. Now we can seize the momentum and make important strides for the health of the Earth and all its inhabitants.

Thank you for all that you have done! I’m proud that you are part of Care2!
