Dear Friends,

The Democratic National Committee and Senator Obama just announced they are seeking broad input for the Party platform. As promised, WomenCount will make sure they hear us loud and clear. The first step is hearing from you about which issue we should tackle first.
WomenCount is focused on the critical issues that emerged from this remarkable primary.  Last week we asked members to take a survey and declare which issue should be addressed first – gender bias in this election, discrimination in the nominating process, or electing more women to office? The response has been incredible! To make sure everyone has an opportunity to determine WomenCount's first campaign, the survey will continue to run through Monday, July 14.
   << Make sure your voice is heard by taking the survey.
Our agenda is simple – accountability.  With your help, we will gather the largest, most passionate, most vocal and potent coalition of women (and men) of all generations and backgrounds who care about the issues that have risen out of the energy and emotion of this election.
   << Help us grow the movement by forwarding this message to friends and family.
Everyone -- no matter who they supported in the primary or who they vote for in November -- should care equally about these matters. Our plan is to organize the movement so that it can be mobilized instantly to promote our shared political agenda. Think of WomenCount as the new MoveOn for women.
