Our Mission

Elect regular working people to Congress who put people before party to make government more accountable and responsive to the needs of all Americans.

Our staff, volunteers and candidates are comprised of working people who have experienced the problems facing our communities every day, and together form a movement that will elect a Brand New Congress.
