Organizer

Rock the Congress PAC

Rock The Congress is an unconnected (e.g. Super) PAC, whose mission is to maximize collaboration among progressive groups to win elections.  We draw upon each group’s strengths to plan and conduct events that: build alignment and solidarity among progressive organizations, foster inter-organizational coordination and communication, and build capacity — training trainers, spreading the word about new tools and methodologies.
