A coalition of 40 grassroots organizations in northern Virginia and Washington D.C. began
meeting regularly in early 2017 to share ideas and coordinate their activities for the 2017 Virginia House of Delegate races. Members of this coalition now share our "lessons learned" about how grassroots organizations can best support progressive Democratic candidates in Virginia House of Delegate and Senate races.
We believe these lessons apply to races in other
states and in Congressional races as well.
“Running a campaign is like running a
small business; establishing priorities
and managing limited resources,
including time, is critical.”
