In this time of darkness, it is hard to believe things will get better, but despair is a luxury we cannot afford. This is a moment in history when we must believe in ourselves, the work we do, and the values we hold. We must do this together.

Join Lean Left’s New Hampshire Team for the Monthly Power Hour Lunch
March 24, 12-1 PM
This is an informal meeting to get to know our fellow activists, brainstorm effective ways we can use our skills and resources in the coming months, and find community in our shared goal of building power and strengthening our democracy. Each month, we’ll focus on one topic that we all want to learn more about, and we’ll share our own experiences and ideas around that topic. March’s topic is “How can we get encourage friends and neighbors to join us in this work?” Sign up here!

It’s easy to get discouraged by today’s news. From a bird’s eye view, we see democracies around the world under assault and wonder what will happen to our own democracy.
Let’s bring it down to the ground level and focus on one state only: North Carolina. What if we could actually help build democratic power in just one state?
This month we bring you three groups that are making long-term investments in North Carolina communities. Carolina Federation, County to County, and Siembra NC use bold and innovative approaches to voter engagement. They reach diverse communities, across race and socioeconomic status; they meet people “where they are” and build relationships that inspire them to commit to political action as a way to improve their lives. And when the time comes, they elect progressive leaders that will represent their values and interests.
Donate today and you’ll receive a ticket to Grassroots to Win in North Carolina, a special event featuring the leaders of these three inspiring organizations. The event is on April 6, 7-8 pm, and is co-sponsored by Lean Left and ten organizations around the country. You’ll receive more information the day before the event. Check out the North Carolina Briefing Sheet for more information about this battleground state.
