The Lincoln Project releases a new ad focused on the resilience of the American people.

August 19, 2020 – Despite months of civil unrest, an economic crisis, and the failed leadership of Donald Trump in a global pandemic, today The Lincoln Project released an ad with a message of hope. The ad reminds voters of the promise of America; a place where dreams come true and the caring that unites us is stronger than the hate that divides us. The ad comes on the third day of the Democratic National Convention and aligns with the day’s theme of “A More Perfect Union.”

“America is not perfect, but even at our worst, we are still the land of hope, opportunity, and perseverance,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “We are a nation of people who rise to meet challenges. When we fail, we get up and try again. We didn’t let aggression deter us in World War II. We didn’t let Al-Qaeda crush our spirit after 911. This year, we are not going to let the most corrupt, divisive, morally weak president in the nation’s history continue to destroy our nation. We will unite against this enemy, too, and will defeat him in November.”



There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.

Thank you for joining us in this fight.
