You CAN make a difference. 

Lean Left welcomes anyone with a passion for our mission of electing Democratic and Progressive candidates in other states.

How Does It Work?

    • We empower activists by connecting them with meaningful actions that align with their individual capacity, interest, and availability.

    • Some of these actions support Lean Left candidates and some support candidates whose elections can directly impact voters in our chosen districts including Secretaries of State, Attorneys General, judges, etc.

    • We partner with local, state, and national organizations that support voter registration efforts, voter education efforts, and any efforts that will improve access to the ballot box.

You can quickly plug into all our actions right here!

But You Can Do More!

Sometimes folks are afraid to take the first step. You can be their guide and inspiration, serving as a Lean Left ambassador of sorts. Take a look at some of the ways you can help out, then consider grabbing a friend and jumping into that beautiful Blue Wave!



Find people in your community who believe in the importance of electing Dems/Progressives in other states. Identify people who want to participate in phonebanking or text banking, write postcards, canvas in a candidate’s district, or fundraise.


Event Host

Have a great space and not afraid to use it? Hold an event for Lean Left! You can raise funds for a candidate or a worthy voting rights organization; you can host a phonebank (even if you don’t phonebank yourself!); you can gather friends for a social hour, then share information about Lean Left candidates and causes. Get creative! And remember, it’s always more fun to buddy up, so grab and friend and plan a Lean Left event.



Mentors and Trainers help people figure out how to work on a particular action. You can mentor someone in your community to phonebank, textbank, or canvass. You can work one-­on-­one or you can attend an event and mentor anyone who needs help—right in your own community!
