— THE COMMON PURPOSE WAY: Multipliers in the field —

We. Travel. We don’t only give money. We don’t just inspire friends and family to get involved in local politics. We TRAVEL to swing states where supporting progressive initiatives and candidates means impacting significant change in national politics.

We may hail from Seattle, but when we arrive in a state to work with a local partner organization we’re following their lead. We carefully select local partner orgs that align with our values, and while in-state we fully adopt their plans, priorities and tactics. We may be passionate and experienced, but we respect the reality that the most lasting change is driven by local citizens. We’re here to be multipliers.
