We are a value-based, peer-to-peer coalition of people volunteering and working to improve their community. We understand that in order to reclaim democracy for the working people, we must harness the transformative energy of the political revolution to empower those who are too often disenfranchised.
We believe that through supporting a new coalition of leaders across multiple parties and backgrounds and empowering thousands to fight for true change by elevating the political consciousness, we will help transform local politics to once again respond to the needs of the people.
Who's behind this effort? 👀
We’re a network of former Bernie staff, volunteers and supporters. Some of us have been involved in politics for a long time, and some of us are just now getting involved.
What we have in common is our belief that grassroots organizing – people turning to their neighbors instead of turning on their neighbors – is the only way to fix the mess we're in. We don't have to agree on everything to share the same values. We seek to build community and deepen solidarity. We want to advance diversity, inclusion, and compassion. We're here to listen, too.

Are you just about Bernie Sanders?
Of course not! But a lot of us definitely #FeelTheBern🔥 -- some of us not so much and that's cool.
We are about everyone that shares our values and is willing to work to find solutions that listen to all sides.
We draw a lot of inspiration from Bernie's message -- we believe that true transformative change only happens from the bottom up, and that in this fight for the soul of our country it's time for all of us to get more involved in the political process. We pledge to stand in solidarity with those who might be singled out or oppressed, and will work toward building and supporting equitable systems that can help our communities to thrive.
