    Default #WalkAway March on D.C. Oct.26-28

    On May 26, former progressive Brandon Straka released a video titled, "Why I Left The Democratic Party." In the video, which has nearly 350,000 views on YouTube alone as of publication, Straka details his transition from progressive to conservative.

    Over the last four months, thousands of former progressives have joined the #WalkAway campaign, sharing their own stories on social media.

    In early September, The Daily Wire had the opportunity to speak with Straka about his video, as well as the impact that the #WalkAway campaign has had. You can check out that interview here.

    Straka has now organized the first #WalkAway march on Washington, D.C., which will take place October 26-28. Speakers for the event include Dinesh D’Souza, Stacey Dash, Joy Villa, Mason Weaver, Buzz Patterson, and others. Dave Rubin, Herman Cain, Tomi Lahren, and Antonio Sabato Jr. cannot attend in person, but have provided videotaped remarks.

    The event will kick off with a gala dinner at the Trump International Hotel on the evening of October 26. On October 27, the march to the Capitol Building is set to take place, followed by a rally featuring various speakers and entertainment. On October 28, there will be a final brunch, which will also feature several speakers.

    Additional details can be found at WalkAwayMarch.com. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased at Eventbrite.

    The official statement provided for the event is as follows:

    The #WalkAway™ Campaign, founded by former liberal Brandon Straka, is a true grassroots movement. Until now, it has been a social media movement, dedicated to sharing the stories of people who can no longer accept the current ideology of liberalism and what the Democratic Party has become. Some left long ago, while many have recently been “red-pilled”. Some have wanted to leave for some time but have feared the consequences they might suffer from friends or family if they were to walk away. The Campaign’s membership currently exceeds 370,000 patriots on all social media platforms combined.

    This is a movement of Patriots from all walks of life who share something very important in common. WE ARE ALL AMERICANS and we will not surrender our country to: group-think, identity politics, violence, vitriol, censorship, hysteria, fake news, race-baiting, corruption, socialism, marxism, and incivility.
    Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

    The purpose of this GoFundMe is to raise funds for the #WalkAway Campaign.

    Update-10/02/18
    This is an update of budgetary expenditures for the #WalkAway Campaign. Currently, we are trying to reach our goal of $500K for the campaign. We have had a team of volunteers work tirelessly on this campaign to ensure its success, and America's success going into the midterm elections. Currently, the campaign is focusing on maximizing our impact by hosting a #WalkAway March on Washington weekend. This is Oct. 26-28th and includes a number of events for which we are fundraising. Our budget for this weekend includes:

    *Hiring of a production team for the march. This includes a team of audio and visual technicians to run the sound and projection for the event as well as the telecasting and live streaming. This team is also responsible for organizing the program and handling the speakers and talent for the event. They will build staging and provide all necessary organization for the success of the event. The minimum amount for this team is $150K and costs increase as our attendance increases
    *Travel and accommodations for speakers, talent, producers and planners
    *Travel and accommodations throughout planning process
    *Marketing and promotion
    *Security
    *Vendors' fees
    *Costs associated with dinner and brunch events (Media, musicians/DJs, security, promotional materials)
    *Shipping costs for merch
    *Permitting and application fees

    In addition to our March on Washington event, the #WalkAway Campaign is becoming a Hybrid PAC organization. We are currently working with multiple legal firms to accomplish this goal, which allows us to remain a politically based organization. Our goals for the organization after the midterm elections include assembling a team of dynamic #WalkAway speakers and sending them to engagements where their voices and stories can have maximum impact (high schools, college campuses, rallies, public speaking events; creating outstanding viral video content which exposes the liberal media, honestly depicts factual information as it pertains to history, politics, current events and culture; creating a top-notch, reliable and informative news source; injecting non-liberal points of view into the culture through creative endeavors in film, television, music, internet and all relevant cultural mediums; voter education; a website which holds our government and politicians accountable to the standards that are demanded by common sense Americans; and much, much more.

    Funds exceeding costs for our current event: #WalkAway March on Washington Weekend will go toward our PAC funding to be carried over and used for campaign causes subsequent to the event.

    (CONCLUSION OF 10/02/18 UPDATE)

    Some of us don’t know any better. We just hang in there hoping things will get better. Kind of like being a Dallas Cowboys fan. I will be a registered Democrat after this election. Some will leave the party because it isn’t liberal enough and some will leave (like at least 5 of my FB friends...3 of them women) because of the Kavanaugh deal. The Democrats will be just fine.
