We’re building a party that works for us

Our vision is a coalition party that will deliver what regular people take for granted in so many other countries: single payer health care, free public college, money out of politics, an infrastructure jobs program, a $15 minimum wage, financial regulations, and more. 

We need actual representation in our government. A majority of people in the US don’t feel represented by either the Democratic or Republican parties. We’ve watched these parties turn their backs on us to answer every call of the billionaires and donors. Overwhelming numbers of Americans understand these parties cannot be salvaged. Polls show that almost two out of three Americans are now calling for a major new party.  It’s time to build the party we’re looking for — one that brings us all together.

What we stand for:
pledges signed to date!
Why we do it

Wealthy donors and big corporations have two major parties. The people have none.

How we do it

Together we’re building a coalition of working people, unions, and progressive groups for a nationally viable people’s party.
