MOVEMENT POLITICS

Petition-2-750×450

Government is not the problem. It’s the prize.

That’s why we’re fighting for a democracy where people - not corporations - set the agenda, and where we all have a voice.

In towns and neighborhoods across the country, we hold conversations with voters about the issues of the day and the world we’re fighting to build. We train volunteers to knock on neighbors’ doors and transform their communities into a force at the polls. We ask candidates tough questions and secure policy commitments. And, crucially, we help leaders in our movement transition from community activism to elected office, transforming our political system town by town and state by state.
