Closing the 527 Is a Courageous Move

Eli (and everyone at MoveOn),

You are demonstrating once more why progressives are the true champions of America. By closing the 527 and focusing on support at the individual level, MoveOn continues to show real courage and leadership towards changing the political landscape. I am more proud than ever to be a member of this organization.

It is the very hard work that you and everyone at MoveOn have put into creating the foundation for online progressive activism that helped Al Gore propel his message of global warming, helped make Howard Dean a household name, helped Act Blue launch so many new progressive candidates, and made Barack Obama's historic campaign even possible. MoveOn's contribution to making America a better country cannot be overstated.

You make us all proud, and you have so much to be proud of. Thank you all for everything you do.
