Apply for the New York 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 New York State 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.
