What Activism Looks Like – Funding Congressional Races – 1¢ at a time
Donate to “It Starts Today” to get Democrats elected to Congress. Here’s how and why –
Money is one of the biggest impediments to running for Congress.
A recent study found that candidates for Senate must raise an average of $3,300 every day for six years to match the contributions collected by that year’s winner.
We cannot afford this type of insecurity in our Democratic races: the 2016 election was lost in just a handful of battlegrounds.
“It Starts Today” uses the simplest of tactics—disbursing money to every single Democratic Congressional candidate the day after they win their primary—to level the playing field.
This works via a monthly subscription—$4.68 minimum to be exact, a figure that represents one penny per federal and state race in the country (you can donate more).
Started by a progressive campaign finance attorney and political technology entrepreneur, “It Starts Today” is designed to ensure that each Democratic nominee can run a funded, competitive campaign, regardless of their background.
