Our 2020 Endorsements

The Working Families Party is proud to endorse the following candidates for federal, state, and local office in 2020. The Working Families Party endorsement is like a progressive seal of approval: it means these candidates can be counted on to fight for us on the issues that matter most, from fair funding of public schools and living wage jobs to ending mass incarceration and getting big money out of politics.

You can apply for the WFP endorsement in 2020 here, or nominate a candidate for the WFP endorsement here.
