“Changing how we develop campaign leadership”

WHY MOVEMENT SCHOOL

The progressive movement, despite our demonstrated ability to mobilize large-scale grassroots action, still lacks the political power to enact solutions that are as big as the crises we face.

Movement School aims to translate activist power into political power by changing how we develop campaign leadership. Headlined by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York City, a handful of 2018 campaigns pushed the boundaries of what anyone believed was possible in grassroots campaigning. They excelled by mobilizing volunteers in disciplined teams, by integrating new tech tools and aggressive digital strategies, and by harnessing bold, unapologetic messaging across all facets of their campaigns. We need to build on this momentum - we need to build the next generation of organizers. Movement School, through our intensive Campaign Fellows program and NYC activities, aims to do just that.

Our Goals

WITH PEOPLE POWERED CAMPAIGNS

More campaigns are run by key staff and volunteers who are women, people of color, working class people, and young people, all with high-level capacity to run the best campaigns the world has ever seen.

TO STRENGTHEN THE MOVEMENT

Our organizers help the progressive movement empower the voiceless in creating a vision for the future, gain the political power to achieve that vision, and become a unifying engine for positive change in our country.

We have to keep organizing.
We cannot stop.
Electoral organizing is a tool for this movement.
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
