We. Travel.

 

We don’t just 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.

When we arrive in a state to work with a local partner organization we’re following their lead. We carefully partner with local orgs that share our values, and while in-state we fully adopt their plans, priorities and tactics. We know that the most lasting change is driven by local citizens.

We’re here to be multipliers.
