Elisa/Sheila Devlin/Rawat started this petition to Joe Biden and

The United States is passing through one of the greatest challenges it has faced in the past two decades. The current administration has dramatically failed us in our time of need. The gravity of these failures have caused the working class to realize that they have been failed for years, by both parties. Now is not the time for non-transformative politics of the last decade. The progressive movement and those it has inspired realize that now is the time for bold, progressive leadership to take the reigns and deliver on the will of the people. The will to make education, healthcare, representation in government, clean air and clean water universal human rights in the country. The will to fight for economic, environmental, and racial justice.


Our preference would be Senator Nina Turner, but of the people being considered by Joe Biden, the natural champion to continue the fight for these causes is Karen Bass, and the undersigned progressives agree that she should be chosen as Joe Biden’s Vice Presidential Candidate. As chairwoman of the Black Caucus, long time dedicated activist, and someone with a pristine voting record, Karen Bass represents a connection and sincerity of virtue with regards to the tense politics of the day. Nominating Bass is nominating someone that not only represents the most democratic voting block in the country - black women - but also represents their struggles with both rhetoric and action. Not only this, but she does this without alienating the center of the party, as the “most liked democrat”. 


Karen Bass represents a chance to approach governing though organization, a strategy that worked well in Barack Obama’s two elections and for Bernie Sanders’ fundraising, which was consistently his strongest suit throughout his campaign. 


Karen Bass is known as a masterful compromiser, which is a skillset Joe will need if he hopes to bridge the divide in the democratic party and activate the 90 million Americans who did not vote last cycle to come out for him.


To maximize our chances of success at a time when many have lost hope and to send a clear signal to the American people that the Democratic Party will not only unseat the 45th President of the United States but will fight for the 99%, we must select a progressive Vice President who will lead us out of the wilderness of criminality, bigotry and corruption. That progressive should be Nina Turner but we’ll settle for Karen Bass.
