Read Liberation Road’s 2020 Electoral Statement to get our take on our movements 2020 electoral priorities and contextualizing and building on the excitement and possibilities Bernie Sanders’ candidacy and coalition.
The 2020 election season will be the most crucial of our lifetimes, on all levels, from national to local, due to consequential races, referendums, and the all-important census.
We believe that left and progressive organizing and messaging this year need to advance three long-term goals:
(1) deal blows to the New Confederacy by defeating its candidates and strengthening the united front against it;
(2) build left, progressive and socialist alliances within this anti-NC united front;
(3) unite with advanced forces in the people’s movements to build and grow statewide independent political organizations.
