For the first time in our organization’s history, we took a chance by endorsing a Presidential candidate.
We built an endorsement process rooted in our vision of true democracy and equity. For 6 months, our chapters met monthly to look at all of the candidates platforms in relationship to our political agenda, the Freedom Papers. We spent time analyzing policies, track records and debating which candidates best aligned with our vision for the future. At the end of the endorsement process, 90% of our members voted for Bernie.
Then, we knocked on thousands of doors, made over 100,000 phone calls in every major city in Florida and talked to our communities about the things we all deserve: healthcare, education, debt relief, higher wages, and a re-shaping of our criminal legal and immigration systems.
And at the end of our efforts in our home state, we have more members and relationships than we’ve ever had because of this work.
