We promote progressive candidates.

 

The best way to create the change we wish to see is by supporting progressive candidates and electing representatives who share our values at the local, state and national level. We work tirelessly at home and at large to get out the word about our energetic and inspiring candidates, as well as support our amazing and dedicated representatives already holding office.

 
 

How we support our candidates:

Get Out the Vote efforts like canvassing, postcard parties, phone calls and driving people to the polls

 

2.

Meet the Candidate and candidate platform educational opportunities through picnics, social events and speaking opportunities online and in person

We are a community.

 

We are a community guided by facts and dedicated to caring for one another. We get together to learn, to work, to celebrate. Our meetings are focused on doing work. We prioritize action over self-promotion.

 

We build community by:
