   This is a e-mail which I have just received from Sojourners, a Christian Magazine and action group. Please read it and do what you do.

You may not know Sam but he's just one person without health care who spurred Sojourners on as we fought for health-care reform. You may not know Mercy but after hearing the tearful story of losing her home through foreclosure, Jim Wallis stood in front of the Treasury Department to tell Washington and Wall Street: Enough is enough.

Informing and advocating for people like these are just part of Sojourners' accomplishments.

Below we've listed some of our 2009 successes -- these are your legacy too. As we reflect together, will you decide now to lay the foundation for our work in 2010? Click here to give right now.

We have worked on many issues: poverty, hunger, climate change, health care, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, nuclear weapons, workers rights, abortion reduction, immigration reform, and economic recovery.

  • Health care: we called for affordable and accessible coverage for all, launching a 'Tell the Truth' campaign which targeted the media members who were polluting our airwaves with half-truths and fear-laced language. This work isn't over -- but access to health care is a goal worth the long struggle.
  • Afghanistan: We were called to a prophetic witness against the war in Afghanistan. Our supporters sent more than 20,000 letters to our nation's leaders, urging investment in development, not warfare. This work will continue in 2010.
  • Climate Change: We helped resource a strong faith-based movement that saw real progress on climate change.  We informed through 2 issues of our magazine and we advocated on Capital HIll for legislation that prioritized the needs of the poor.

Just these issues alone have required a huge investment. Work like this requires more momentum. If you'll be a part of our legacy for 2009 and beyond, click here to support us today.

Well said, we might not have gotten all that we wanted this time around, but the fight has just begun.

Great post, You listed what eh Democratic Party stands for but what do the Republicans stand for?  Just saying NO?  Are they called the party of No because they have no ideas?
