MoveOn is mobilizing millions of voters to protect democracy from the extreme right. Program will include key down-ballot races, including secretary of state.
Washington, D.C. – Today, MoveOn Political Action announced the launch of its 2022 political program: America for All: Us v. MAGA. MoveOn is mobilizing millions of voters to protect democracy from the extreme right that seeks to overturn our elections, silence our voices, take control of our bodies, and block policies that will benefit all Americans.
MoveOn’s over-$30 million election program—its largest ever for a midterm—will build long-term progressive power and move the needle in key races spanning from Congress to gubernatorial contests. And with the real threat of MAGA Republicans taking over state and local election systems to control the outcome of elections, MoveOn members will bundle an unprecedented $1 million in small-dollar donations to support secretary of state and gubernatorial candidates running in competitive races in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin.
“The choice we face in 2022 was already a dire one between the majority who support democracy and helping all Americans thrive and MAGA Republicans who are so extreme they attempted to overthrow our government,” said MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting. “The danger is even greater now as Trump’s radical justices on the Supreme Court get ready to overturn Roe and hand over more power to states where MAGA Republican candidates are lining up to criminalize abortion and take us backward to a time of forced births, even in the case of rape or incest.”
Epting continued, “With basic freedoms, our health care, and democracy under attack, MoveOn members will also be keenly focused on state and local elections, including gubernatorial and secretary of state races.”
To achieve these goals, MoveOn will be raising millions for candidates, running the largest-at-scale relational voter outreach program of the midterms, and launching a multimillion-dollar paid media program to microtarget voters to boost turnout.
MoveOn has already endorsed 14 candidates for state and national office and will announce more in the coming weeks.
MoveOn is a people-powered force for progress. MoveOn mobilizes the left to elect Democrats and enact progressive change. We are the homebase for millions of members who refuse to accept the status quo and are moved to take action. For more than a generation, MoveOn has been a bulwark against the radical right, channeling our voices to end wars, protect democracy, and advance justice for all.
