Apply for the WFP endorsement in 2018!

Apply for the WFP endorsement!The Working Families Party’s mission is to elect the next generation of progressive leaders who are fighting for the issues that matter to working people. We’re looking to support progressive champions across the country who are running for federal, state, and local office in 2018.

A Working Families Party endorsement is like a progressive seal of approval: it tells the voters in your community which candidates we can really count on to fight for the issues that matter most, from fair funding our public schools and living wage jobs to ending mass incarceration and getting big money out of politics.

WFP does our best to make sure our endorsed candidates have the training and resources they need to run and win, including access to our nationwide base of activists and volunteers to spread the word about your campaign.
