COVID-19 Candidate Support

​Coronavirus (COVID-19) ​is forc​ing​ ​campaigns​ to shift the way ​we do business. No more door-knocking, no more in-person events: for the foreseeable future​ most candidates will have to ​find new ways to reach voters where they are.

Despite all odds, thousands of young, progressive candidates are continuing to organize. ​With the help of a large community of other progressive organizations, we’re ​keeping a ​running ​list of resources to ​help candidates navigate their new reality.

Check out our resources for candidates below. We’ll continue updating as we go.​ (Page last updated 7/29/2020, 12:05 PM ET).​
