Remember that article about extreme abortion bans you DM’d to your friend? Or the Substack about gun violence prevention you shared with your school’s parent group? What if we told you state lawmakers — not politicians in DC — are the ones passing the policies that drive every issue you care about? Because they do. And those people in your network? Together, you have the power to help elect state legislative majorities committed to improving lives. Here’s how.

Ready to build governing power for state lawmakers focused
on improving lives?
Why States? Why You?
State lawmakers hold immense power. And you hold the power to help elect them! Did you know it is often cheaper to change the balance of power in an entire state chamber than it is to win a single competitive Congressional seat? Take that in. Because it means you don’t have to be a millionaire who writes big checks to politicians to have an impact in the states. Everyday people — like you and your friends — can create change that just isn’t possible at the federal level. You (yes, you!) can be the difference-maker who helps a candidate in a key state win a purple district, and shift the balance of power for lawmakers who want to improve lives.
What Can $1k Do?
While state lawmakers are powerful, they’re not usually career politicians with unlimited resources. They’re teachers in Arizona and loggers from Maine — people just like you — who are often stepping up to serve in a part-time state legislature because they care about their community. In a state legislative race, a $1k donation is significant. It could help:
- Hire a campaign manager earlier in the cycle
- Pay for a text-banking program that reaches 10,000 voters in-district with campaign messages, volunteer asks, or GOTV prompts
- Cover a month’s rent on a campaign office that houses a candidate’s central operation
When you organize your network, you can collectively become the $1k donor who powers these critical campaign tools.
