Dues Make a Difference

Printing thousands of endorsement guides for distribution each year—50,000 in 2023 alone!—isn’t cheap. Most of your dues go toward these kinds of voter outreach expenses, from printing and phonebanking costs to parade entry fees to effective digital tools like social media ads and P2P texting. And that outreach works! 78% of our endorsed candidates and campaigns won in 2017.Your dues also cover the basics to keep the lights on, like room rental fees for our monthly meetings and web hosting. We’re an entirely unpaid, volunteer-run organization; we count on dues and contributions from engaged citizens like you to fund the work necessary to get progressives elected.
