Today is the tenth anniversary of the death of Senator Paul Wellstone. When we lost him, we lost a progressive hero.
Last night, Progressive Change Campaign Committee members joined Senator Wellstone’s son David, the senator’s former chief of staff Kari Moe, Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, and other friends on a conference call to remember his legacy.
We shared many amazing memories about Paul Wellstone. There was laughter and definitely some tears too. If you missed the call, you can listen here or download it as a podcast.
Those closest to Wellstone asked PCCC members to continue his legacy by electing bold progressives like Elizabeth Warren. We need more volunteers in the next 3 days for Warren, Sherrod Brown, and other progressives — click here to find a shift that works for you.
We also created some inspirational graphics using quotes from Senator Wellstone. See one that’s been shared 1000 times on Facebook here and click here to see others.
Even during the frenzy of election season — maybe especially during election season — it is important to remember our heroes. Thanks for being a bold progressive.
