By a vote of 72%, Bernie Sanders campaign organizers in Los Angeles have decided to bolt the Democratic Party and join the Movement for a Peoples' Party.
Los Angeles, CA -- Our Revolution Los Angeles announced today that an overwhelming majority of its members have voted to form a major new party and it is joining the Movement for a People’s Party. The chapter represents more than 10,000 people in Los Angeles. They are asking other Our Revolution chapters and progressive groups to join MPP and the fight for a people’s party alongside them.
Former Bernie 2020 Co-Chair and Our Revolution President Sen. Nina Turner also showed her support for the Movement for a People’s Party in a series of tweets last week, including retweeting, “Our future is in a #PeoplesParty” and MPP’s website. Turner is joining MPP on an upcoming national call. Prominent Sanders surrogates RoseAnn DeMoro and John Cusack shared their support for a new party as well.
Jerry Perez from the group appeared on Jimmy Dore today, saying that he believes the grassroots organizers have finally had enough with DNC betrayals.
