Square One looks for districts long overlooked by the Democratic establishment, identifies compelling, young and diverse candidates and creates the infrastructure needed for them to run and win, ushering in a new generation of political leadership.
Square One is with its candidates from day one, providing the connections, resources and support to launch, run and win their campaigns. From hiring campaign staff, to brokering endorsements, to GOTV strategies, to new technology, Square One is with their candidates every step of the way.
For too long, women, people of color and the LGBTQ community have not been properly represented in government. By recruiting diverse candidates and providing them the necessary tools to run for office, Square One is working to create a government that truly represents the people it serves.
We are not a party committee that only provides funding to promising districts. We are not a political startup that provides a stock toolkit to campaigns. We are not a political organization that comes in only when a campaign begins to look like a winner.

Every dollar goes towards flipping Congress and electing progressive leaders to move our country forward.
