  • Here's What's Coming Up

    Last year was big for us. We celebrated our 10th birthday by leading over 130 trainings in 29 states, preparing thousands of the nation’s top progressives to win the Wellstone Way. So I wanted to take a second to give you a quick update about what we have planned for 2014, and let you know a few ways you can stay connected with us.

  • Empowering a Movement as Big as Texas

    This might be the understatement of the year, “Texas is a big state.” Yep, Texas is big: big geographically, big population, big economy, and big by the countless numbers of cultures, communities, and traditions that make up the people of the Lone Star State.

  • Governing Through a Politics of Conviction

    If you’ve attended any Wellstone Action event, you know that we empower progressives to take on tough fights and win. We travel the country, teaching progressives the hard skills that make a difference, like leading an effective one-on-one organizing conversation and creating a winning campaign plan. We also spend a lot of time talking about something more fundamental: our values, and what it means to run and win and, yes, govern, through a politics of conviction.

    What are we talking about? Meet Joe.

  • You're the Best, Patty

    Last week, we said goodbye to Patty – after 10 years volunteering with Wellstone Action and many years of campaigning with Senator Wellstone, Patty’s going to be spending more time with her family, including a new grandchild!

    Yes, we’ll miss all the work Patty put in helping to process credit card donations. But, much more importantly, we’ll miss her joy, her positive spirit, and we’ll definitely miss her stories.
