ADAM BRESNAHAN for DA Delegate for Bernie Sanders

sixhundred

Germany for Bernie is proud to support Adam’s candidacy to be a delegate for Bernie Sanders at the 2020 DNC. Adam has been a tireless volunteer with the campaign since 2019, making thousands of calls and training numerous volunteers to get on the lines with him. He was not afraid to initiate canvassing drives which has no doubt contributed to the highest in-person voting numbers in Germany as well as a resounding victory for Bernie in the DA Global Presidential Primary.  

Adam has been an inspiring member of the group and we believe his drive and unwavering commitment to progressive policies will make him an ideal delegate for the Bernie Sanders campaign.

Adam arrived in Berlin as a Fulbright scholar for German Literature and works as a translator and copy editor.

Following is a statement by Adam as well as a testimonial from one of our lead organizers Claire Lops. 

Adam’s Statement

My name is Adam Bresnahan. I was intensely engaged with the grassroots Germany for Bernie. Alongside canvassing in Berlin, I regularly participated in our weekly phonebanking sessions, when we made over ten thousand phone calls and sent over one hundred thousand texts to voters in Iowa, Nevada, Michigan, and other states. I am experienced at getting out the vote and am well-networked in Berlin and Germany.

I am campaigning to be a delegate for Senator Sanders because I want Medicare for All to be on the Democrats’ platform. Those living in countries with robust healthcare systems know that things can be better than they are in the States. Our first-hand experiences are going to be important conversation starters at the convention. At the same time, universal healthcare in the US will give Americans living abroad have the ability to return to the States if they would like to do so. The prospect of returning to the States and being priced out of healthcare is daunting. This makes the decision to return very difficult. It is my belief that in order to get out the vote abroad, we need to be able to tell voters that the Democratic Party and its presidential nominee will push for legislation that gives healthcare to all. This will provide many Americans abroad with the financial independence and freedom of movement that many of them are currently lacking.

I believe that I would be a good delegate for Bernie because I have the support of a large grassroots organization, Germany for Bernie. I have campaigned side-by-side with Americans and non-Americans and have had phone conversations about Bernie and his platform from people all over the United States.

I will endeavor to get out the vote for Democrats Abroad in the November general election and will encourage our grassroots organization to engage for the eventual nominee.

We are already coming up with ways to support down-ballot candidates, including by mobilizing our experienced phonebanking crew. I have canvassed in Berlin to make people aware of the Democrats Abroad presidential primary by going from bar to bar at night in a trendy district, standing outside a subway station at a large university, and informing study-abroad students at a university class.

I have extensively volunteered helping refugees find permanent housing in Berlin, a city with a severe shortage of affordable housing. I thus have a lot of experience working together with people from cultures and with life experiences much different than my own.

I have been living in Germany since 2011 and work as a translator and copy editor.

Attached is a video of me introducing myself and a letter of recommendation from Claire Lops, one of the lead organizers of Germany for Bernie. I am proud to have her recommendation and would be overjoyed to be selected as a delegate for Bernie Sanders.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions at adam@germanyforbernie.com

Best,
Adam Bresnahan

Dear Electors,

I am writing you to strongly support the candidacy of delegate candidate Adam Bresnahan because I am truly convinced that he will best represent our interests.

As a US-American lawyer living abroad in Berlin, I have met Adam multiple times during political activities for the Bernie Sanders campaign. Adam has been working tirelessly within and outside of the group Germany For Bernie over the course of the last twelve months. His efforts have made a huge difference in getting out the vote for the Global Presidential Primary as well as in the US.

I have witnessed numerous conversations between Adam and potential voters in which he not only informed people about their right to vote from abroad but also convinced them to go the extra mile of becoming a part of our great democratic process. It has been refreshing to see how important it has been for him to give Americans abroad a voice and how many new members signed up with Democrats Abroad Germany as a direct result of his work.

Adam not only cares deeply about political rights, but also has the rare gift of being able to communicate with people regardless of opinion and political affiliation. This, alongside the fact that all of our volunteers have true respect for Adam, is one of the main reasons that convince me that he would be an excellent delegate.

If you would like a delegate who has the interests of Democrats Abroad and the protection of our political rights at heart, Adam is the ideal person for the job.

I can only encourage everyone to reach out to Adam for further conversation.

Kindest regards,
Claire Lops, LL.M

The campaign ends, the struggle continues

08.04.2020, Bernie Sanders livestream announcement
Video link

I want to express to each of you my deep gratitude for helping to create an unprecedented grassroots political campaign that has had a profound impact in changing our nation.

I want to thank the hundreds of thousands of volunteers who knocked on millions of doors in the freezing winters of Iowa and New Hampshire and in the heat of Nevada and South Carolina – and in states throughout the country.

I want to thank the 2.1 million Americans who have contributed to our campaign and showed the world that we can take on a corrupt campaign finance system and run a major presidential campaign without being dependent upon the wealthy and the powerful. Thank you for your 10 million contributions – averaging $18.50 per donation.

I want to thank those who phone banked for our campaign and those of you who came together to send out millions of texts. I want to thank the many hundreds of thousands of Americans who attended our rallies, town meetings and house parties from New York to Los Angeles. Some of these events had over 25,000 people. Some had a few hundred and some had a dozen. But all were important. Let me thank those who made these many events possible.

I want to thank our surrogates, too many to name. I can’t imagine that any candidate has ever been blessed with a stronger and more dedicated group of people who have taken our message to every corner of the country. And I want to thank all those who made music and art an integral part of our campaign.

I want to thank all of you who spoke to your friends and neighbors, posted on social media and worked as hard as you could to make this a better country.

Together, we have transformed American consciousness as to what kind of country we can become, and have taken this country a major step forward in the never-ending struggle for economic justice, social justice, racial justice and environmental justice.

I also want to thank the many hundreds of people on our campaign staff. You were willing to move from one state to another and do all the work that had to be done – no job was too big or too small for you. You rolled up your sleeves and you did it. You embodied the words that are at the core of our movement: Not me, us. And I thank each and every one of you.

WE HAVE WON THE IDEOLOGICAL BATTLE

As many of you will recall Nelson Mandela, one of the great freedom fighters in modern world history, famously said; “It always seems impossible until it is done.” And what he meant by that is that the greatest obstacle to real social change has everything to do with the power of the corporate and political establishment to limit our vision as to what is possible and what we are entitled to as human beings.

If we don’t believe that we are entitled to health care as a human right, we will never achieve universal health care.

If we don’t believe that we are entitled to decent wages and working conditions, millions of us will continue to live in poverty.

If we don’t believe that we are entitled to all of the education we require to fulfill our dreams, many of us will leave school saddled with huge debt, or never get the education we need.

If we don’t believe that we are entitled to live in a world that has a clean environment and is not ravaged by climate change, we will continue to see more drought, floods, rising sea levels and an increasingly uninhabitable planet.

If we don’t believe that we are entitled to live in a world of justice, democracy and fairness – without racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia or religious bigotry – we will continue to have massive income and wealth inequality, prejudice and hatred, mass incarceration, terrified immigrants and hundreds of thousands of Americans sleeping out on the streets of the richest country on earth.

Focusing on that new vision for America is what our campaign has been about and what, in fact, we have accomplished. Few would deny that over the course of the past 5 years our movement has won the ideological struggle. In so called “red” states, and “blue” states and “purple” states, a majority of the American people now understand that we must raise the minimum wage to at least $15 an hour; that we must guarantee health care as a right to all of our people; that we must transform our energy system away from fossil fuel, and that higher education must be available to all, regardless of income.

It was not long ago that people considered these ideas radical and fringe. Today, they are mainstream ideas – and many of them are already being implemented in cities and states across the country. That’s what you accomplished.

In terms of health care, even before the horrific pandemic we are now experiencing, more and more Americans understood that we must move to a Medicare for All, single-payer system. During the primary elections exit polls showed, in state after state, a strong majority of Democratic primary voters supported a single government health insurance program to replace private insurance. That was true even in states where our campaign did not prevail.

And let me just say this: In terms of health care, this horrific crisis that we are now in has exposed how absurd our current employer-based health insurance system is. The current economic downturn we are experiencing has not only led to a massive loss of jobs, but has also resulted in millions of Americans losing their health insurance. While Americans have been told, over and over again, how wonderful our employer-based, private insurance system is, those claims sound very hollow now as a growing number of unemployed workers struggle with how they can afford to go to the doctor, or not go bankrupt with a huge hospital bill. We have always believed that health care must be considered as a human right, not an employee benefit – and we are right.

Please also appreciate that not only are we winning the struggle ideologically, we are also winning it generationally. The future of our country rests with young people and, in state after state, whether we won or whether we lost the Democratic primaries or caucuses, we received a significant majority of the votes, sometimes an overwhelming majority, from people not only 30 or under, but 50 years of age or younger. In other words, the future of this country is with our ideas.

THE CURRENT CRISIS

As we are all painfully aware, we now face an unprecedented crisis. Not only are we dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which has taken the lives of many thousands of our people, we are also dealing with an economic meltdown that has resulted in the loss of millions of jobs.

Today, families all across the country face financial hardship unimaginable only a few months ago. And because of the unacceptable levels of income and wealth distribution in our economy, many of our friends and neighbors have little or no savings and are desperately trying to pay their rent or their mortgage or even to put food on the table. This reality makes it clear to me that Congress must address this unprecedented crisis in an unprecedented way that protects the health and economic wellbeing of the working families of our country, not just powerful special interests. As a member of the Democratic leadership in the United States Senate, and as a senator from Vermont, this is something that I intend to be intensely involved in, and which will require an enormous amount of work.

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

That takes me to the state of our presidential campaign. I wish I could give you better news, but I think you know the truth. And that is that we are now some 300 delegates behind Vice President Biden, and the path toward victory is virtually impossible. So while we are winning the ideological battle, and while we are winning the support of young people and working people throughout the country, I have concluded that this battle for the Democratic nomination will not be successful.

And so today I am announcing the suspension of active campaigning, and congratulate Joe Biden, a very decent man, on his victory.

Please know that I do not make this decision lightly. In fact, it has been a very painful decision. Over the past few weeks Jane and I, in consultation with top staff and many of our prominent supporters, have made an honest assessment of the prospects for victory. If I believed we had a feasible path to the nomination I would certainly continue the campaign. But it’s not there.

I know there may be some in our movement who disagree with this decision, who would like us to fight on to the last ballot cast at the Democratic convention. I understand that position. But as I see the crisis gripping the nation – exacerbated by a president unwilling or unable to provide any kind of credible leadership – and the work that needs to be done to protect people in this most desperate hour, I cannot in good conscience continue to mount a campaign that cannot win and which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour.

But let me say this very emphatically: As you all know, we have never been just a campaign. We are a grassroots multi-racial, multi-generational movement which has always believed that real change never comes from the top on down, but always from the bottom on up. We have taken on Wall Street, the insurance companies, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, the military industrial complex, the prison industrial complex and the greed of the entire corporate elite. That struggle continues. While this campaign is coming to an end, our movement is not.

Martin Luther King, Jr. reminded us that “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” The fight for justice is what our campaign was about. The fight for justice is what our movement remains about.

And, on a practical note, let me also say this: I will stay on the ballot in all remaining states and continue to gather delegates. While Vice President Biden will be the nominee, we should still work to assemble as many delegates as possible at the Democratic convention where we will be able to exert significant influence over the party platform and other functions.

Then, together, standing united, we will go forward to defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history. And we will fight to elect strong progressives at every level of government – from Congress to the school board.

As I hope all of you know, this race has never been about me. I ran for the presidency because I believed as president I could accelerate and institutionalize the progressive change that we are all building together. And, if we keep organizing and fighting, I have no doubt that our victory is inevitable. While the path may be slower now, we WILL change this country and, with like-minded friends around the globe, the entire world.

On a very personal note, speaking for Jane, myself and our entire family, we will always carry in our hearts the memory of the extraordinary people we have met across the country. We often hear about the beauty of America. And this is an incredibly beautiful country.

But to me the beauty I will remember most is in the faces of the people we have met from one corner of this country to the other. The compassion, love and decency I saw in them makes me so hopeful for our future. It also makes me more determined than ever to work to create a country that reflects those values and lifts up all our people.

Please stay in this fight with me. Let us go forward together. The struggle continues.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders
