I'm Going to Fight for What's Right

"Now, more than at any other time in our lives, is the moment for action and organizing" - Thomas K. (Coeur d' Alene, ID)

In the weeks and months ahead a new Congress and President will be making decisions that affect our lives. With so much on the line, we have to ask ourselves, "Are we willing to step up to protect the values we share?"

Say YES and join people like you across the country deciding to fight to challenge Trump & Republican's pledge to rip health care aware from millions of Americans by repealing the Affordable Care Act, instituting mass deportation, reinstituting stop and frisk, or denying climate change while appointing climate deniers to head the EPA and Oil Tycoons over the Department of the Interior. That's just the start.

Join people liking you in this fight – because protecting the progress we’ve made is going to take us all working together. We need unity. We need you.

About RebuildTheHope.org

BuildTheHope was one of the first sites launched in 2007 to empower volunteers of the 2008 Obama Campaign. It acted as a place where volunteers could connect with each other to begin organizing work that would build volunteer teams that ultimately led to the election of President Barack Obama. BuildTheHope helped support efforts that led to historic legislation – historic progress – improving the lives of millions of Americans.

With so much at stake after the recent presidential election, we felt it was time to reorganize and rebuild that hope. Your tools and support can create change. You can help our country realize the potential it has to be bold, honest, caring, inclusive, and uniquely strong. We have to band together for progress. We need your help! Signup to volunteer. Take pride. Pitch in.

Organized by volunteer Obama Alumni and paid for through donations. This site is under construction.
