Update: We’re disappointed to announce that Marianne Williamson did not win the primary and will not be able to advance. She’s a powerful woman and we know there will be more inspiring, meaningful things coming from her, so keep an eye out for her!

Political wisdom from Marianne:
“The moral challenge of our generation is to get the money out of politics.”
“You can’t look to the status quo to heal the disease.”
“If you don’t vote, you’re still voting. You’re just voting for the people you hope won’t win.”
Here are two things you can do to help Marianne Williamson win the election:
1. Share this “care package” blog with video and resources on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and include why you’re voting for Marianne with #mariannewilliamson.
2. When you share the video, tag three of your friends in Los Angeles (District 33) to get them to vote for Marianne.

Marianne was recently on Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis in March:
Waylon talks with spiritual leader Marianne Williamson, 6-time bestselling NY Times author, about her run for Congress—can she win? Why is she willing to subject herself to the “mud” of our political system? Can she be effective if she wins? And how can we help, if so inspired?
Elephant is psyched to be working in partnership with Google+ on our new live video series, which features three live videos a week (that can be watched later, too).

Top Three reasons why Marianne Williamson should be in Washington:
1. Because she is a voice of clarity and equanimity by running as an Independent unencumbered by corporate special interests and political party agendas.
2. Because humanity’s well-being demands that we integrate wise, feminine leadership into government.
3. Because she makes Love her bottom line (not fear; not money; not ego). And that’s missing from world leadership. And it matters.
