Philly Politics

Philly Politics Action Group

Every four years the nation focuses on the race for the White House, but NN understands that political power starts with the committee person, ward leader, city councilperson, district attorney, mayor, judge, state legislators, governor and judges at all state levels – and that these are important races that we can influence.  So we endorse and assist down-ballot progressive candidates in primaries and off-year races as well as those in the major national contests for Congress, Senate and White House.

After a detailed endorsement process NN members vote on a slate of candidates, and depending on our resources,we may open offices to stage door-to-door canvassing efforts, telephone banking and polling place literature distribution.  In national elections we may volunteer with a campaign and become campaign leaders in our own wards. We see our electoral work as follow-through on our policy positions and we urge you to join us in these lively campaigns.

Members of the Steering Committee lead this effort overall with teams that focus on researching and interviewing candidates and supporting candidates we endorse.
