As a growing number of Democratic contenders announce their 2020 presidential campaigns, a coalition of grassroots groups hoping Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will also run are not waiting for an official declaration as they expand their organizing efforts and continue to make the case for why the senator would be the best candidate.
Organizing for Bernie has partnered with Our Revolution, Progressive Democrats of America, and The People for Bernie Sanders to plan a national “Weekend of Action” for Jan. 26–27.
The coalition has put together an interactive map for those interested in hosting or attending an event as well as a canvassing guide (pdf) that details Sanders’ key policies and how to encourage supporters to sign a petition urging him to run for president.
“It’s up to us to organize in our community and invite people into this movement for Medicare for All, tuition-free college, abolish ICE, end mass incarceration, end prohibition, and pass cannabis legalization.

“It’s up to us to organize in our community and invite people into this movement for Medicare for All, tuition-free college, abolish ICE, end mass incarceration, end prohibition, and pass cannabis legalization,” Kat Brezler, co-founder of The People for Bernie Sanders, said in a statement. “We can have a future to believe in but it’s incumbent on us to bring the momentum to this campaign. We are the campaign.”
Dulce Anayasaenz, co-founder of Organizing for Bernie, said: “I’m eager to talk to people in my community next weekend about the important role we have this year. The 2020 election will be a platform for bold leaders to offer an alternative to the current administration and an opportunity for us as voters to vote for candidates that we believe are most aligned with our values and vision for America.”
“Sen. Sanders is the people’s champion we need in the White House,” Anayasaenz added, “and I’m ready to discuss that with my friends, neighbors, and new people I meet.”
