Representative Pramila Jayapal, immigrant rights activist, first Indian-American member of the House, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) and chief sponsor and author of H.R. 1384 – the Medicare for all Act of 2019 (with 118 cosponsors to date), has endorsed Bernie Sanders for President of the United States.
🚨 Really big deal – @PramilaJayapal has endorsed Bernie Sanders for President.
Pramila is a major leader in the House, carries the Medicare for All bill & co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Both chairs of the Progressive Caucus have now endorsed Bernie Sanders. https://t.co/DPUjrFWTW3

This means that both CPC co-chairs have endorsed Bernie Sanders, as AOC points out, and that’s not all. As I type the number 2 most tweeted-about topic in America right now is #IEndorseBernie. Here are a couple favorites of mine:

I don’t really talk about this on social media but as I’m sure a lot of you know I was diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma when I was 19. my medical bills totaled over $300,000. I had decent insurance but many dont. We need Medicare for all – one of many reasons #IEndorseBernie

I just revisited this Intercept piece.
Millions have received health care from community clinics because Bernie has repeatedly passed progressive amendments in hostile congresses in order to fund them. #IEndorseBerniehttps://t.co/PLFzmPVcFf

Bernie marched with MLK
Bernie's been fighting racism since the middle of the 20th century
Who you are and what you do, what you fought for, and who and what you fought against, is always relevant

Sanders supporters: Keep pushing! Bernie volunteer options, in order of importance:
1. If you’re in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, or South Carolina:- find an event near you: events.BernieSanders.com – Download BERN and add everyone you know and ask them to support Bernie: https://app.berniesanders.com/
2. If you’re not in one of those first four early states, the most important thing you can do is get to one of those first four early states, especially IA and NH. Take the “Bernie Journey” and travel there to knock on doors: https://act.berniesanders.com/signup/…
3. If you can’t get there in person, make calls to early states. The Campaign has a huge goal of 5 million calls before Iowa. You can do it on your own from home, there’s a chatbox if you need help, and there’s a community on Slack of other callers to talk to. As a “coastal, urban elite” with a small child, I have mainly been volunteering in this way, and it is super easy and even quite fun at times. https://berniesanders.com/call
