What is the Working Families Organization?
Working Families Organization seeks to build a genuine, vibrant multiracial democracy. To work toward this, it organizes individuals, institutions, and movements to achieve the scale that this goal will take.
Why do we think this project is important?
Organizing for Democracy Reform is a project of Working Families Together, and aims to disrupt the culture, institutions, and rules of the game in order to unrig our political system and transform the fight for an inclusive, multi-racial democracy. Doing so requires legislative changes at the state and federal level that expand voting rights, strengthen campaign finance and ethics rules, end partisan gerrymandering, enact D.C. statehood, and more.
Working Families Organization works toward these goals by building federal and state-based organizing infrastructure to create a pro-democracy ecosystem. Working Families Organization leverages its nationwide network of supporters and activists —particularly people of color and working-class people — to advance this work.
