JUN 13

Community Fundraiser for Stephany Rose Spaulding

Hosted by Stephany Rose Spaulding for Senate

Thursday at 7 PM – 9 PM 134 Buckeye Dr, Colorado Springs, 80919

Please join Arlene Moss and other celebrated community members for an evening with Dr. Stephany Rose Spaulding! Last year, Stephany ran for U.S. Congress against Doug Lamborn, raising $350,000 and delivering over 125,000 votes -- more than a Democrat has ever received in the 5th Congressional District.

Today, Stephany is running for Senate because the divisions holding us back go far deeper than the politicians realize, and we need structural change in the way things work. Universal single payer is the only way to end medical bankruptcies and protect Medicare for the future. 100% renewable energy is non-negotiable in confronting climate change. And if the middle-class is ever to break free from high costs and low wages, they must have access to higher education and trade school without taking on any debt.

To pass policies like this, we don't just need "more Democrats." We need more business owners, more working-class people, more veterans, more people of faith, and more people of color, to demand that these reforms become law. As a pastor, an educator, and a pro-choice Democrat who delivered over 125,000 votes in Colorado Springs, Dr. Spaulding is uniquely qualified for the job.

Whether or not you can attend on June 13, we need your help: Help fuel this rapidly growing coalition by donating as much as you comfortably can. And if you can join us, please do and bring a friend! Dr. Spaulding is an inspiring and passionate speaker, so you won't want to miss her. See you June 13th, and thank you for your support.   Please RSVP
