The Jovanka Beckles for AD 15 campaign urges East Bay progressives to rally with Senator Bernie Sanders, Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Jovanka at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at the Berkeley Community Theater (on the grounds of Berkeley High School). 

“We need a government by the people, by the many people, not the few,” Jovanka said. “That’s what Bernie Sanders and Barbara Lee believe, and so do I. As Nina Turner says, ‘Everything we love is on the line!’” 

Bernie is already electrifying enthusiastic crowds and packed auditoriums on his nation-wide tour, so far in Indiana, Michigan, South Carolina, Iowa, and Wisconsin. He’s on his way to Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, and California to mobilize the vote in the upcoming crucial mid-term elections. 

Bernie is sweeping to regions vital to his progressive agenda. His Berkeley rally will be held in concert with Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13) as they energize support for progressive candidates and progressive causes in the November 6 general election.  

In Ames, Iowa, Bernie challenged his base to get out the vote. “I’m doing everything I can to make it happen. But one thing I will absolutely guarantee you: it will not happen if people are sitting back and are cocky and talking about how sure they are of winning.” 

Congresswoman Lee announced her endorsement of Jovanka on October 10. Jovanka had previously been endorsed by Our Revolution, whose President Nina Turner rallied with her in September, and by the Democratic Socialists of America, 28 nation-wide, state, and union locals, eleven environmental organizations, and a long list of state, regional and local activist organizations and leaders .
