The Democratic National Committee is Now Using a Parkland Survivor to Fundraise

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is now using a survivor from the tragic school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida to fundraise for the cash-strapped committee.

The DNC sent out an email to its supporters from Sara Imam, a survivor of the tragic school shooting, on Friday that asked Democrats to donate to the DNC.

“This week the Democratic Party launched IWillVote — a national campaign to organize voters and get them to the polls. Voting is the first step toward ending gun violence, so I’d like to ask you to do something important today. Will you add your name right now to commit to vote this fall?” Imam asks in the email.

After you have committed to vote this fall on the DNC website, users are immediately taken to a page asking for a donation.

This is not the first time the DNC has tried to raise money off the tragic Parkland school shooting. Just a day after the tragedy, the DNC Chair Tom Perez sent a similar email to supporters.

The DNC’s decision to use the victim of a school shooting to raise money is sadly not surprising, given how much the committee has struggled to raise money under Perez’s leadership.
