Central to Down Home is making government work for us as poor and working people, not for the wealthy and big corporations.
One way that we do this work is through our endorsement process. Down Home focuses on local elections, knowing that local office holders have a huge amount of impact on our daily lives.
From local school boards to the local sheriff, a lot is at stake for poor and working people when it comes to who represents them.
Our local chapters endorse candidates in municipal elections through statewide offices– evaluating candidates based on their alignment with our local platforms as well as their understanding of the need to build multiracial poor and working power in our local government.
Endorsing candidates isn’t a complicated process, but our members treat it with intentionality and care.
If you are a member and want to get involved in the endorsement process in your local elections, contact your local organizer.
If you are a candidate seeking an endorsement, please contact your local chapter organizer.
