In December 2015, we decided to endorse Bernie Sanders for President after 87% of Working Families Party members voted to back him.
Working Families Party members and staff have been busy building the political revolution ever since — helping Bernie Sanders get out the vote all across the country as #WFP4Bernie.
We wanted to make sure you knew about all our great work together. Every week, we’re going to give you a snapshot of our #WFP4Bernie activism all across the country. Here’s what we’ve done in the past few months:
Sent WFP staff to help Bernie Sanders Get Out the Vote and start campaign offices nationwide.

This is just the beginning. In the next week, we’ll be going hard to make sure Bernie wins the nomination.
- Voter registration drives at college campuses in New York and Pennsylvania
- Phonebanks in our Oregon, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut offices nearly every day of the week
- Engage #WFP4Bernie volunteers nationally to join local volunteer events and make calls from home
- Embed field staff into Bernie’s on-the-ground operation in Wisconsin who know how to open offices, recruit, and send out volunteers in just 24 hours
- Deploy grassroots organizers around New Jersey to recruit Bernie delegates, train them, and make sure they get the signatures they need to get on the ballot for the June 7 primary
Thanks so much for being part of #WFP4Bernie.
