31st Street Strategy, in a Nutshell

  • Election "infrastructure" is crucial.

  • Major issues with the standard approach of many other organizations:

    • "Boom and Bust" cycle around the time of elections

    • Siloed campaigns; disjointed & uncoordinated efforts

    • Too much, and too late, dependence on TV

    • Failing to organize locally year-round & on-the-ground

  • We build infrastructure in states with key elections, especially US Senate races, via organizations that do year-round, on-the-ground organizing.

    • Support State Party year-round organizing following successful Wisconsin model e.g. PA, NC and MI

    • Grassroots groups in PA, NC and GA

  • We especially look for opportunities to reach working class and rural voters​.

  • Working America's outreach to working class voters appears attractive, including for members to engage with voters in Pennsylvania.

  • We provide very selective candidate support where our dollars will be most effective.
