The Power of One

Rights of women and minorities, climate change, gun control, universal healthcare: They all depend on getting out the vote. That is where you come in! Because more and more elections are decided by razor-thin margins, your actions can make the difference in defending our democracy. You are the power of one!

2019 is 2020! It is not enough to focus on winning Congress and the Presidency in 2020. Republicans have built structural advantages by using their control of state offices to gerrymander districts and enact voter suppression laws. In 2017, Democrats lost one seat in the Virginia House of Delegates by a single vote. But for that loss, the Democrats would have broken the Republican majority in Virginia. We have another chance in 2019. Democrats are only 2 seats away from majority in the state Senate and House. Success means that Democrats and progressives can draw a fair Congressional district map in 2020.  2019 is also the year to be registering and empowering voters, particularly in states with a track record of disenfranchising voters. 

Take Action

Lean Left VT helps activists apply their power to elect Democrats and Progressives at the state and federal levels outside of Vermont, and we support Voter Engagement efforts like voter registration and education. Whether you have one hour or ten per week, Lean Left VT can hook you up with actions that fit your time and your interests. Don’t worry if you have never done campaign work before. Lean Left VT volunteers provide training and support.
