What is New Left Accelerator?

New Left Accelerator (NLA) empowers progressive leaders to transform their ideas into impact. They accomplish this by running an accelerator program, providing technical assistance, and serving as a resource clearinghouse for promising, new, progressive organizations.

Why do we think this project is important? 

NLA believes that in order to create the change we want to see in the world, the entire progressive ecosystem must evolve to better support multi-entity power-building organizations led by the communities most impacted by injustice. NLA seeks to deliver multi-entity informed technical assistance and to develop a multi-entity praxis and resource hub that will serve as a central home for tools, training, resources, and knowledge specifically designed to address the most complex and common multi-entity strategic and operational needs of power-building organizations.

Democracy Fund Voice supports NLA’s work to strengthen movements and state ecosystems that use multi-entity infrastructure to build power.

How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting New Left Accelerator? 

In 2023, Democracy Fund Voice approved a three-year grant of $600,000 to New Left Accelerator.
