Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz is committing 
$20 million to help Hillary Clinton and her Democratic
 Party in the upcoming US election.
 Moskovitz, a Harvard room mate of Mark Zuckerberg
 who was part of the founding group of the social
 networking giant, said he and his wife Cari made the 
decision to pour in millions because “polarization in
America today has yielded a race that is about much
 more than policies and ideas.

”
The election “has become a referendum on who we
 want to be  —  as individuals, as a nation and as a
society,” he wrote in a blog post on Medium.
 Moskovitz said this was the first time he and his wife
are endorsing a candidate and donating.
“The Republican Party, and Donald Trump in particular,
 is running on a zero-sum vision, stressing a false
contest between their constituency and the rest of the
world,” he wrote. 
“We believe their positions, especially on immigration,
which purport to improve the lives of Americans, would
in practice hurt citizens and noncitizens alike. ”
He added that he hopes his efforts “make it a little more
likely that Secretary Clinton is able to pursue the 
agenda she’s outlined, and serve as a signal to the
 Republican Party that by running this kind of campaign
— one built on fear and hostility  –  and supporting this 
kind of candidate, they compel people to act in
response. ”
The donations will go to various political action
committees including the Hillary Victory Fund,
 Democratic congressional groups, the League of
Conservation Voters (LCV) Victory Fund, For Our Future 
PAC, MoveOn.org, Color Of Change and several
 nonpartisan voter registration efforts.
