Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has been making waves in the Democratic Party ever since she won her primary in June 2018. Indeed Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley as part of the new freshman class of congresspeople are pushing the Democrats to the Left in a way we haven’t seen in many years, with headline after headline showing how the Establishment is complaining about it. And they need reinforcements. They need you.
Justice Democrats is an organisation that helps recruit, guide and manage uncorrupted, progressive, people focussed candidates to run in the Democratic Party. Congresspeople, governors, state-legislators: at every level of government, the Justice Democrats are there to put candidates in who don’t take corrupting, special interest money in their campaign donations, to run for office, and to win. Almost all JD candidates enter the race at the primary level - that means their first fight is against other Democrats. If you are tired of seeing the same old corrupt incumbent keep holding onto their position in power election after election, or you can’t stand to see another centrist blue dog step into representing a deep blue, left wing constituency, then it’s time for the Justice Democrats.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and a host of other contenders were all Justice Democrat candidates.
In fact, they were one of the first and only organisations to reach out to and help AOC and the rest build and run their campaign. They want you next.
If you want history making, strident, courageous change, they want you. If you want to bring the American people Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, raising the minimum wage to a living one, ending money in politics, and much more, they want you.
If you can inspire and work with grassroots movements of thousands of people to power a campaign that defeats big money, then the Justice Democrats want you.Now is the time to consider how you and those passionate, caring, hard working, people-serving members of the community you know can help bring the political revolution.
