We Believe

We believe that politics shouldn’t be about money and power games - it should be about the improvement of people’s lives. That’s the kind of politics Paul Wellstone embodied: one where we all do better when we all do better. And with a radical, resurgent conservative movement on the rise, it’s the kind of politics we need now more than ever.

We believe that electoral politics, public policy, and grassroots organizing can be woven together to create progressive change. We call it the Wellstone Triangle, and it anchors everything we do.

We believe that to set this triangle in motion, and sustain change over the long haul, we need to develop a critical mass of diverse leaders with the motivation and expertise to win back our values. So that’s what we do.

We’ve been at it for over 14 years now, and, more than ever, we believe in winning. We believe in Wellstone. And we invite you to join us.
