Los Angeles, CA – The Humanity Forward Fund, stylized as HumanityFWD, was started by supporters of Andrew Yang, the increasingly viable forward-thinking candidate for President currently polling at *8th among the Democratic hopefuls (ahead of Klobuchar, Gillibrand, Castro, Inslee, and many others) will now be taking donations through ActBlue after launching with a period of taking donations in Bitcoin only, in recognition of Yang being the only candidate to support creating sensible policies around cryptocurrency.
In a 99% upvoted post on Reddit the organization, led by longtime SoCal Yang supporter Seth Cohen and noted Universal Basic Income advocate Larry Cohen (no relation), came out with their commitment to transparency. Noting “we are #YangGang, just like you all! We are all longtime Andrew supporters, UBI advocates, and 21st-century realists. We built this “Super PAC” for the movement. For YOU. The plan is to have the best and boldest ideas bubble up from the grassroots… and then make them happen.”
“We didn’t set out to start a “Political Action Committee”. We set out to get UBI passed, save the environment, recognize quality healthcare and economic security as fundamental human rights and to GET ANDREW YANG ELECTED PRESIDENT.”
“We spoke to lots of smart people and came to the conclusion that, if we wanted to take big actions in support of Andrew, this is the best and, most importantly, legal way to do it.”
“We know ‘Super PACS’ and ‘Independent Expenditure Committees’ don’t have the best reputations. That’s why we are building a new type of Super PAC. One that believes in Yang Gang Values and Human-Centered Capitalism and making America work for THE PEOPLE. No ‘dark money,’ no ‘political insiders; and 100% transparency!”
“We believe this to be quite historic. We are using the mechanisms ‘political insiders’ put in place for other ‘political insiders’ to beat the system. The difference? We are a bunch of ‘political outsiders’ using those same mechanisms to give voice to the grassroots MOVEMENT!
“This movement is bigger than Andrew. We need to get Andrew elected and get his policies passed into law. But that won’t happen unless we also fill the undercard up and down state and federal ballots with forward-thinking 21st-century leaders who will work with Andrew to move #HumanityFWD!”
“By the way – Super PACs are NOT ‘PACS’ – we can not and will not donate money to any political campaign. We take actions independent of the campaign to support Andrew and his policies. When Andrew says “I don’t take PAC money” – this will still be true. We also don’t take foreign money, and all donor lists are public information for transparency. That’s why you’ll see this language on our website: ‘Paid for by the Humanity Forward Fund (www.humanityFWD.org) and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee. Contributions or gifts to Humanity Forward Fund are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.’”
“This is a global movement. The #YangGang can not be stopped. Thank you all for your service to this movement! But here’s the thing – ‘we’ are ‘you’ and ‘we,’ being the Super PAC, aren’t going to thrive without your support. Other candidates have tens of millions of dollars more than Andrew, he needs our help. Please join us to build the biggest, baddest and most altruistic Super PAC ever… and get Andrew to the White House!”
It’s time to act. It’s not Left, it’s not Right… It’s HumanityFWD.
