  • Movement Technology Trainings in 2018

    At Wellstone, our Movement Technology program is about people and the connections between us -- not tech for tech’s sake.

    In 2016, we began this body of work because we saw that technology was getting farther and farther away from the core components of what makes organizing so powerful: people. Our framework has evolved over the last two years, and we’re proud to report that organizers and communicators that come through our doors are creatively equipped with the skills to face an increasingly complicated world.

  • 2016 fair courts

    Defending Our Democracy

    Our courts have always played a crucial role in maintaining our country’s checks and balances. Judicial independence is crucial for protecting our democracy and in 2017, this is more critical than ever. 

    In 2016, outside spending by interest groups dominated judicial elections like never before. This threatens the impartiality of our nation’s court system, a balance that is crucial to our democracy.
