WASHINGTON, D.C.People’s Action released the following statement in response to news that Sen. Elizabeth Warren would suspend her campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.  

“Senator Warren ran a principled, historic race for the Democratic nomination, speaking to the needs of the multiracial working class and against the tide of white supremacy and fear coming from the White House.”She faced down a billionaire on stage and showed that the truth is on the side of the progressive movement, and she stayed steady when misogyny reared its head, and we are so grateful for her accomplishments. “Thank you, Senator Warren.” 

People’s Action endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders for president in 2020, but its members noted a strong second preference for Warren, who together with Sanders stood head-and-shoulders above the rest of the field in terms of their work with movement groups and support for our long-term agenda. 

About People’s Action

People’s Action is a national network of 40 state and local grassroots, power-building organizations united in fighting for justice. Our organization recently released a vision for a national Homes Guarantee that has already prompted major legislation from champions including U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib. We operate the largest progressive rural organizing project in the country. Prior to endorsing a candidate for president, we completed a national forum series that included Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, and Andrew Yang. The Nation called our Iowa forum the “most in-depth, people-powered forum” of the 2020 cycle.
