Across the country, working-class candidates and progressive leaders face systematic disadvantages in our electoral system. Corporate interests, elite donors, and insular party power structures disincentivize many potential leaders from running for office.
The Courage to Change PAC is our answer to that broken system. Officially affiliated with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Courage to Change seeks to reward challengers and incumbents who display political courage — people who refuse to bow to establishment pressure, who advocate ferociously for working-class families, and who have lived the same struggles as the people they seek to represent.
Contributions will be used to make early investments in progressive challengers that can even the playing field against established incumbents, and bolster progressive leaders in Congress who take difficult but righteous stands. All endorsees will embody the ideals of racial, social, economic, and environmental justice.
Courage to Change will refuse all corporate PAC donations, as will our candidates. As a result, grassroots support is critical to our efforts to build a progressive majority in Congress. Your support is greatly appreciated.
