August Spotlight:
The Southern Strategy

Since the 1970s, the Republicans’ Southern Strategy was to divide and conquer along racial lines. In 2020, Dems have real chance to win with a message of unity that appeals to a broad coalition of people. This month our fundraising energy is focused in two states: North Carolina and Georgia.

The month of August is Lean Left’s jumping-off point for Election 2020! 
We will have multiple trainings, webinars, Q&A’s, Resistance Cafes, and other online events throughout the month so we can hit the ground running in September!
