What We Believe
We understand that political power starts with the committee person, ward leader, city councilperson, district attorney, mayor, judge, state legislators, governor and judges at all state levels – and that these are important races that we can influence.
What We Do
We vet, endorse, and work for candidates who share our vision. We often open an election office from which we run canvasses, phone banking and Get Out The Vote for our endorsed candidates.
We have been involved in successful campaigns to nominate and elect Helen Gym to City Council, Art Haywood to the State Senate, and Chris Rabb to the State House. We were a major force in the coalition that helped elect our nationally renowned District Attorney Larry Krasner.
We often need help in screening candidates and setting up candidate forums. We usually set up a temporary campaign office out of which we run voter registration, canvasses and phone banks. Volunteers work in their own neighborhoods, where they know the voters and can build relationships from election to election. We support our volunteers with training and materials and we have a good time in the process.
