New trifectas in Minnesota and Michigan. Ground gained in Pennsylvania and New Hampshire. Majorities defended in Colorado, Maine, and Nevada. Rightwing supermajorities prevented in Nebraska and Wisconsin. In 2022 we powered historic wins in state legislatures across the country. Our top takeaway? Our electoral work, as part of a nearly $60M investment in states this cycle, made all the difference — despite a national party that overlooks and under invests in state legislatures. And we’re already hitting the ground running to do it again in 2023 and beyond. Join us!

HOW GIVING CIRCLES WORK
The best path to securing the future of our country is by shifting power in a state chamber. At The States Project, we help everyday people drive that change through Giving Circles. We’re a community of actual people — nurses, teachers, retired folks, lawyers, writers, and others — pooling our resources within our Giving Circles, and as a wider Giving Circles network, to make impactful investments that can help shift or defend the balance of power in a state chamber.
Thinking about starting your own Giving Circle but still have questions? We’ve got your back! Check out the answers to the most frequently asked questions in our inbox to understand why starting a Giving Circle is the most strategic action you can take to create real change.
