When Susan Burton’s five-year-old son was run over and killed by a Los Angeles police officer, her grief drew her into severe drug addiction. For the next twenty years, Susan would cycle in and out of prison. Her crimes were non-violent, but she was struck with felony charges mandatory under California law, making it near impossible to find housing, employment or access to drug treatment.
Then her story took a remarkable turn. Susan not only broke the cycle – getting clean and finding employment - but she went on to found A New Way of Life Reentry Project, dedicated to helping recently incarcerated women rebuild their lives. You can listen to Susan share her story in our powerful video below and read more about how Californians can vote on a simple solution to end this ugly pattern this November.
The fight to become the first Democratic Texas governor in two decades is not an easy one, but the Davis campaign has already made major inroads.
Now it’s clutch time, and investments made in the final weeks will be make-or-break. Here’s a look at what needs to happen before Election Day for Wendy to succeed at flipping the script on Texas politics.
Six years after the historic election of Barack Obama, we are living through a revolution in American politics, and the elections taking place in less than 35 days are a key moment in that ongoing revolution. Obama’s election in 2008 announced the arrival of a new demographic majority in American politics, comprised of People of Color and Progressive Whites.
As we saw in 2010, however, when the New Majority stays home, we lose. If we make the right investments in 2014 – targeted, grassroots voter engagement, elevating progressive leaders, and focusing our energy on key races – we will hold the Senate and make progress in the House and in representation at the statewide level. Here’s what it’s going to take.Read more
We wrote recently about how critical it is for powerful, multiracial women to seek public office (and how we can help them win). And this year, we couldn’t be more proud to endorse a slate of talented, passionate women at the forefront of this movement. Since we introduced them back in May, the women leaders on our slate have been working tirelessly to turn the tides in communities on the brink of political transformation.
We are also proud to announce the addition of Leticia Van de Putte, a longtime progressive voice and current candidate for Texas Lieutenant Governor, to our list of fierce women candidates to watch. Full 2014 Endorsed Candidate List.
With less than 35 days till Election Day, here is a look inside the campaigns of six women we want to see shaping progressive politics come 2015:
You hear it all the time - our schools have gone downhill. But people seem to be 'Waiting for Superman' to fix education - like the 2010 documentary so aptly observed. No need. Here are 7 of the best proposals to fix our schools put forth by a group of up and coming progressive candidates in the 2014 election.
Midterm elections are less than fifty days away, and the time is now to rally behind rising progressive leaders. That’s why we’re proud to announce our endorsement of four game-changing new candidates. From California to Florida, these leaders have proven that they can energize voters of color, women and young voters – because, simply put, they are serious about making the changes these voters want to see.
Some of these faces may be familiar to you, others may be new, but one thing is certain: these are leaders that we want to see at the forefront of progressive change in 2015.
