DemocracyNews & Opinion
2020 was a historically important election. But the 2022 midterm elections could have an even bigger impact on American democracy and the health of the planet.
Our opponents understand what’s at stake, and will use their corporate coffers to influence the outcome of the election. They’ll spend millions of dollars blanketing the airwaves with ads and filling our mailboxes with misinformation. We don’t have their cash. What we do have are community leaders around the country ready to mobilize their neighbors to vote.
There are three main components to our strategy for electing candidates who won’t trash our public resources for profit.
Defending The Majority In Congress For A 2022 Victory Over Climate-Deniers
Corporations will be spending millions of dollars to elect Republicans who will put profit before people. However, we can defeat them if we work together. Food & Water Action has been building power in key areas around the country, in places like Johnson City, Iowa, Broward County, Florida, and Pittsburgh. We will use our grassroots infrastructure to elect progressive Democrats in these battleground Congressional districts and beyond.
This spring Food & Water Action will announce the Congressional districts where we can have the most impact on the general election. This will happen after redistricting has settled, to best inform our decisions. These will be districts we already have a strong grassroots presence in. This way we know our continued investment will have a big impact.
With your investment, we’ll deploy time-tested tactics to effectively mobilize voters and win these important races, such as:
- Voter registration
- Door-to-door canvassing
- Handwritten letters
Strengthening The Progressive Block With Climate Champions In 2022
Nobody fought harder for President Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda than progressives. We need more climate champions working to get our country to 100% renewable energy. We have already endorsed three climate champions, Summer Lee (PA-12), Jessica Cisneros (TX-28), and Rep. Andy Levin (MI-11). We are excited to support these candidates because they have stood so strongly with us. For more information and background about these candidates, visit our Endorsements page.
