The organization will fund "resistance" groups standing up to President Donald Trump.

Clinton said in an email announcing the nonprofit those groups include Swing Left, which supports Democratic House candidates in swing districts; Emerge America, which advocates Democratic women run for office; and Color of Change, an online organization for racial justice.

"We're launching Onward Together to encourage people to get involved, organize, and even run for office," Clinton said on Twitter.

The organization's leadership includes former Vermont governor and 2004 presidential candidate Howard Dean.
