Mar 30, 2020

We must make sure that the checks from the first stimulus package get to people as quickly as possible. Next, we must build a new stimulus package to go even further.

Bernie Sanders' Campaign recently announced it would rally donors for coronavirus relief. Last week, The AGMA Relief Fund was named in the second wave of the call for donations, among a handful of groups “providing critical support during this crisis.”

For seven days, Bernie Sanders supporters were encouraged via text message, email, and social media interaction to contribute what they could, noting that donations (unless the donor stated otherwise) would be divided evenly between The AGMA Relief Fund and nine other charities.

Thanks to this effort, The AGMA Relief Fund saw over $181,000 in donations enter the Fund. This influx comes at a time the Fund needs it the most, with the number of requests for assistance in the last two weeks eclipsing what the Relief Fund had seen in the last three years combined.

"Thank you, Senator Sanders, for your recognition and support of the performing arts and artists,” said Ray Menard, AGMA President and AGMA Relief Fund Trustee. “Your advocacy for the health and well-being of workers sets a great example of leadership in this time of crisis. Your supporters have made an immediate difference in the lives of so many AGMA artists."

Democratic U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan was officially named chair of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign in Wisconsin. Pocan had previously endorsed Sanders, the independent from Vermont, and called him the most electable candidate to take on President Donald Trump.

The Sanders team rolled out a list of endorsements early Monday ahead of the April 7 Democratic Party presidential primary.

"In this an unprecedented moment in history, it is more important than ever that we come together and look out for one another,” said Sean Ward, who is coordinating the Sanders campaign in Wisconsin. “We are grateful to these Wisconsin leaders who are standing with Sen. Sanders in the fight to protect and safeguard our nation through these uncertain and dangerous times.”

State Rep. David Bowen, former congressional candidate Randy Bryce, dairy farmer Sarah Lloyd and Marcelia Nicholson of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors were among those named vice chairs of the Sanders Wisconsin campaign. Other vice chairs include labor leaders Angelina Cruz of Racine Education Association, Amy Mizialko of Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association and Peter Rickman of Milwaukee Area Service & Hospitality Workers Organization. In addition, the campaign announced endorsements from 14 other elected officials, labor and community leaders.
