RootsAction cofounder Jeff Cohen said, "It really is a shame for a party called 'Democratic' to be sending a message that it wants to shield one candidate from too much democracy."

RootsAction is dedicated to galvanizing people who are committed to economic fairness, equal rights for all, civil liberties, environmental protection -- and defunding endless wars. We mobilize on these issues no matter whether Democrats or Republicans control Washington D.C.
