WHY MOVEMENT  SCHOOL

We aim 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.

One election was never going to fix everything wrong with our country. Today, we must continue organizing. Organize to make sure every vote is counted. Organize to build a just and equitable future. Organize to save our lives. The people will win.
