For the many. not the few.

We believe that winning a government that provides for the many, not the few, will require winning elections with candidates from the rank-and-file of our movements, organizing that builds people-powered infrastructure, and campaigns that shift the prevailing narratives and recruit people to our politics. Our values include:

Quality Public Education
We value neighborhood public schools that are thriving community centers, and we believe that every child deserves a quality education in a safe, supportive learning environment that welcomes authentic parent engagement, and is filled with highly effective teachers who love our children and our community.

High Quality Jobs
We value fair pay for hard-work, and we believe that everyone deserve quality, living wage jobs with health-care and benefits that allow them to not only provide for themselves and for their families, but also build their community’s economy.

Affordable Housing
We value safe communities and we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live in safe, affordable housing and that affordable housing not only provides families with a place to live, but also builds the community towards becoming more stable and vibrant.

Civic Engagement
We value civic engagement, and believe that the people who are most affected by the issues should be at the decision making table and should engage with and hold their elected officials accountable to their constituents.

Direct Action and Corporate Accountability
We value organizing that empowers community members to take direct action to address community issues they care about. We believe that large numbers of people united around a common concern is a vehicle of power that is able to provide a formidable counterweight to corporate control over the political process and challenge the corporate domination of both the Democratic and Republican parties.



Each Membership Convention has debated, amended, and voted on a resolution prepared by the Party Committee that speaks to what we believe is required of us in this moment. Read past resolutions below.

Priorities from within the full platform, based on what we believe will best serve our political organizing strategy.

We make endorsements based on our hopes, not our fears. It is not our role to endorse in every race, but to win a city and a state for the many, not the few. We will out-organize our opponents, set the terms of the debate, and develop a pipeline and infrastructure that can support bold and inspiring new leadership.
