2022 31st St. Strategy in a Nutshell

  • Election "infrastructure" is crucial, especially early in year

  • Major issues with the standard approach:

    • "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

  • 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

  • Very selective candidate support where our dollars will be most effective

Our strategy is flexible, nimble, detail-oriented,

evidence-based, and targeted.

By banding together, we can have

the greatest impact.
