Ok, now it’s official: Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for President.  If you watched Trump's shamelessly unreal acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention last night, you may be dazed and bewildered from being screamed at for more than an hour about the (wholly imaginary) Dystopian States of America. It's been a week of divisiveness, bigotry, crudity projecting a vision of an uglier and crueler America.  The only redeeming words spoken were when Melania Trump quoted our wonderful First Lady Michelle Obama – without attribution.

But we can’t sit around fretting about the fate of the nation - and the world - under a Trump presidency. As a party we are busy taking our campaign into communities across the country and  around the world. In the coming weeks, we’ll have more to say about OUR nominee and HER vision for a better America – and the many other wonderful Democratic candidates running for office across the country.  

But for now we invite you to purge the venom and take the ONE WEEK DUMP TRUMP CHALLENGE.

We challenge you to –

We don’t expect everyone to do everything in the Dump Trump challenge – at least not in a week.  But if you do, write us at [email protected] and we’ll put your name up on our website as a Super Duper Trump Dumper. 

Look for our coverage of next week’s Democratic National Convention in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Aspirations – what promises to be a week of hope, inspiration, and a vision for a better America.
