Support Build the Wave, an organization that gets grassroots volunteers involved in critical 2018 races.
Build the Wave is yet another org created by campaign veterans who are doing an end run around the standing but rusty and expensive traditional political infrastructure and getting real people involved in races across America that need their help.
It’s all about the grassroots–the small-dollar donors, the digital activists, the tech-savvy, and the countless alarmed folks who want to do their bit to defend small-d democracy in the wake of Trump’s 2016 election.
Build the Wave’s clearest high-profile result was the narrow special election victory of Democrat Conor Lamb in Pennsylvania in March. Almost 250 of its volunteers sent more than 94,000 texts encouraging folks to vote. Its texting campaign reached a third of all of those who cast their ballots for Lamb. Its Facebook ads reached about 23,000, and its Lamb-related Twitter posts got more than 3 million impressions.
