So far, 2020 is proving to be a year of tumultuous and uncertain times. We are reminded almost daily of how much is at stake in the upcoming elections. From municipal boards to the presidency, we need movement champions in office at every level of government, who will advocate for the change we need and ensure that the communities most impacted by the multitude of crises confronting us, and whose voices have been excluded from decision-making spaces will be heard and included.

We are steadily advancing Movement Politics by identifying grassroots, movement-aligned candidates, providing leadership training for those who are considering running for office, and holding forums for our members and the public to engage with progressive candidates on their platforms and visions for the future. New Hampshire Organizing Director, Isaac Grimm adds, “Given the billions of dollars pouring into our elections spreading fear, disinformation, and racist, sexist and classist messages, it’s more critical this year than ever that people’s candidates running for local and statewide office are supported by grassroots organizations with a shared vision for a just and sustainable society.”

Ahead of the September 8th New Hampshire primaries, RAD is endorsing a new slate of twenty-one candidates in state races. This latest round of endorsements is in addition to the 84 endorsed candidates we announced at the launch of our Renew platform at the end of June, for a total of 105 RAD-endorsed candidates in the 2020 New Hampshire races. We are grateful to all of our members who invested the time and energy to participate in the endorsement process. Movement Politics is a key part of how we make the change we need. And we couldn’t do it without you.

As we head into this critical election season, let’s keep building this movement together.

And now, please meet our newest slate of endorsed candidates! (If you are interested in volunteering, supporting a campaign or simply finding out more, we have included links to the candidates’ social media pages, websites, and donation pages to get you started!)
