Who I Am
My name is Amos Miers and I am committed to a world that works for Everyone and Everything. This mantra has guided me on a path to enact positive change to our current system that does not work well for everyone, that harms our environment, that creates poverty, that separates us from one another and our planet.
This has been my compass for many endeavors such as in my personal business since 2005 where I have work with other Socially Responsible businesses to help them achieve their goals, in my pursuits volunteering as a Guardian ad Litem where I advocate for children in our judicial system who have been removed from their homes, and through activism and organizing more direct actions such as Occupy Wall Street where we addressed income inequality and attempted to release the corporate grip over our government.
Only from the direct action 'outside efforts' of street action and seeing what we did and did not accomplish, made it clear to me that we needed to be working from inside the system in addition to outside. This includes being elected to or helping people be elected to government positions, and fixing the two party system that so many of us believe are controlled by big money interests.
I got actively involved in Bernie Sanders' campaign for president of the United States, organized grassroots efforts in my area and was elected to be a delegate for Bernie in the 2016 Presidential Democratic National Convention...in that process I became more actively involved in the Democratic Party.
I learned it is possible to have a substantial impact on the Democratic Party and became clear that the quickest, most effective, way to bring about positive systemic change is to fundamentally reform the Democratic Party, to bring it back to a more progressive party such as in the days of FDR when the party better reflected voice and will of the people. Where using our government for benefit of the masses and the planet were the focus of the party.
So I have focused all of my time to working within the Democratic party where I first was elected as a Precinct Committeeman, and am currently elected as the Vice Chair of my County Party, went on to create and was elected President of our local chapter of the Democratic Progressive Caucus, got elected to the board of our State Democratic Progressive Caucus, ran for a DNC member position for our State at the national level and helped a campaign for a progressive candidate for DNC Chair who came within 30 votes of winning.
I Need Your Help
These positions are all volunteer roles, and each one of them take the time of full or part time jobs. So this leaves me little time to work on my personal business that provided my income since 2005.
In order to continue this important work of reforming our party to bring about the change we need in our nation I am asking for your help. I am asking for a small monthly contribution to help keep me working hard for you, and everyone around us. Any amount helps, whether you can show solidarity of a $5 a month contribution, or match $20.21 that signifies when our daily progress will be reflected in the elections across our nation in our County and State officers as well as the election of the next DNC officers by 2021!
Onward We Go
The work we are doing in incredibly critical to the future of our people and our planet. I need your help to keep me moving us forward. We can only do this together, so if you can help me financially I greatly appreciate it. Even better, if you have the time I would love to get you involved in the work we are doing, together. The party is made up of people and the better people we have working together, the more we can do, together. I will be updating this site, where you can stay up to date on the progress we are making, learn how you can get involved, and of course sign up to be a monthly sustainer so I can keep doing this important work.
Together we can do this, and I know that we will be successful. The power of the people is greater than the people in power.
