31st Street Strategy, in a Nutshell
Election "infrastructure" is crucial.
There are major issues with the standard approach used by 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.
Our strategy is flexible, nimble, detail-oriented,
evidence-based, and targeted.
By banding together, we can have
the greatest impact.
