Run to Win, a national recruitment campaign aimed at recruiting and helping thousands of pro-choice Democratic women around the country run for office and win.

Run for Something will recruit and support talented, passionate youngsters who will advocate for progressive values now and for the next 30 years, with the ultimate goal of building a progressive bench.

A friend linked to this article in the Detroit Free Press, and I thought it was worth reposting here:

Nation can't survive system that distorts the majority's will

Even as Republicans strengthen their grip on the legislative process, America’s electoral majority continues moving steadily to the left.

What if the same anomaly becomes commonplace, not just in presidential balloting, but in congressional and state legislative elections? How will voters react if their preference for one party’s candidates are routinely expressed as electoral victories for the opposing party?

Michigan has already witnessed the normalization of this disconnect
between the voters’ electoral preferences and those of their elected representatives.
