Wellstone Action gave me the foundation to run an effective grassroots campaign. Most importantly, it taught me that progressive candidates need to get serious about reaching new and disengaged voters.
Wellstone gave our candidates a renewed sense of confidence; they believe they can win, and they have the tools to win. That wouldn’t have happened without Wellstone. Wellstone harnessed their potential.
Wellstone brings a level of intentionality around impact, and a sophisticated understanding of the political climate in which our grantees work. They help our groups understand their role in the broader progressive ecosystem and have transformed them – through core skills training, strategy, metrics, and time-tested best practices – from making small-scale change to really commanding the margins.
