MOVEMENT POLITICS

vs.

TRANSACTIONAL POLITICS

ELEVATE PEOPLE POWER

Organize around real relationships in our communities, 1:1’s & direct actions

ELEVATE POWER OF CONCENTRATED WEALTH
ELECT MOVEMENT LEADERS TO PUBLIC OFFICE

Elect people who reflect our life experiences and identities, share our values

VOTE FOR THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS
INCREASE SHARE OF ELECTORATE WITH OUR WORLDVIEW ON RACE

Stop threats to democracy, dismantle barriers that keep people of color from voting, confront candidates with weak on racial justice analysis

ROLL OVER TO DOG-WHISTLE ATTACKS ON CANDIDATES OF COLOR & AVOID TALKING ABOUT RACE
RAISE MONEY FROM THE 99%
BIG MONEY DICTATES OUR ACTION
BUILD & STRENGTHEN ORGANIZATIONS' INFRASTRUCTURE THROUGH ELECTORAL CAMPAIGNS
POP-UP CAMPAIGN SHOPS THAT DISAPPEAR AFTER ELECTION DAY
BOLD ISSUE STANCES INTEGRATED INTO PLATFORMS & ELECTIONS
ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS "BLUE" CANDIDATE WINNING
EVER-EXPANDING PUBLIC CONTROL OF THE ECONOMY
POLLING IS ONLY WAY TO TEST MESSAGES
USE ELECTIONS TO INVEST IN LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
PAID STAFF MAKE ALL THE DECISIONS AND TAKE ALL KEY ROLES
OUR MOVEMENT, OUR AGENDA, OUR LIBERATION

Politicians will not save us.

A POLITICIAN WILL SAVE US
