We know groups all across the country have already started thinking about the next election: which races they want to engage in, how they’ll get involved, what level of support they’ll be committing to get their candidates over the finish line. Some groups have already dug in and endorsed some candidates! For groups who chose to make endorsements, we have a new program to help you level up your electoral engagement post-endorsement: Local Voices, Local Power.
We still live under an election ecosystem deeply out of balance, where Corporate PACs use their deep pockets to press on the democratic scales and buy influence, all the while driving a wedge between us and our elected officials. Since our start, Indivisible has been about empowering the grassroots to resist the right-wing takeover of American government, and that includes fighting back against power-thirsty billionaires and their candidate puppets.
Local Voices, Local Power will support and spotlight the hard work you and your groups do to win elections. Through Local Voices, Local Power, Indivisible is putting money and resources into the movement’s hands to reinforce the work you and your groups are already doing to take action, reach voters, and elect candidates who represent your community’s interests, not the interests of CEOs or their billion-dollar corporations.
Making an impact in elections is hard and invaluable work, and is often deeply under-resourced if you’re not connected to a billionaire or two. We may not be billionaires, but we are the grassroots. We’re a network that digs deep, builds connections, and supports one another with the resources we’ve got to help transform our world into something better. Through Local Voices, Local Power, we’re offering you the resources we’ve got to help amplify your local voice to build local power.
