  • Building Progressive Power Coast to Coast

    Each week, we're confronted with another threat to our communities; last week's assault on immigrants leads painfully to this week's attack on transgender kids. We do this work of resisting, of persevering, knowing full well that it doesn't stop here: that another hateful executive order is just around the corner. 

    And we aren't going anywhere. In these first months of the new administration, Wellstone has turned toward what we already know: we can't cede power anywhere.

  • Data and Analytics Camp Stands with Miami

    Last Friday, when the Miami-Dade County Commission voted to collaborate with ICE and place our communities at risk, we were horrified. We believe that our public and political leaders should act to strengthen our communities, not tear them apart.

    We asked our partners on the ground how we could help. The answer: "Come to Miami." 

    Wellstone is proud to stand in solidarity with our allies and partners in Florida who are resisting this threat to our communities; however we also know the risks that come with traveling to cities with hateful, anti-immigrant policies.

  • Data and Analytics Camp: Suiting up for the Fight Ahead

    Friday and Saturday were a study in contrast so fierce it took my breath away. On Friday, the threats to our communities reached a viciousness and a scale many of us haven’t seen. Yet Saturday we saw a wave of new energy and support, banging on our doors, ready to be a part of the fight. 

    As organizers, it is our task to step up and meet the moment. For me, as an NOI Data Bootcamp and Bernie 2016 Data Team alum, that means harnessing data and analytics to support long term community organizing as well as electoral wins. We can do both and in this moment, we have to.

  • Ready for New Leadership in Baltimore

    In April 2015, John Bullock and seven others made the trip from Baltimore to attend Camp Wellstone in Richmond, Virginia. That weekend, back at home, people began taking to the streets demanding justice for Freddie Gray, an unarmed black man killed in police custody. 
     
    “I saw this as a touchpoint for inequalities that were under the surface,” John says. As organizers, they asked themselves the question, “How do you show up in a moment like this?”
