Our Mission

Left politics through the lenses of love, justice, hope, and possibility.

Core Principles

LOVE

The bright future we envision and will work toward will be grounded in true care and compassion for one another, increased empathy, community, culture, and inclusivity. A better tomorrow is achievable for all through collective consciousness, mutual aid, and community care; our work will center around opportunities to uplift one another and rise together.

JUSTICE

Essential to our work is a focus on distributive justice: in education, in housing, in healthcare, in our economy, in environmental issues that affect our communities, in our political system, in the legal and carceral systems of governments including our own, in all the core pillars of society that form the foundations of how people live. To achieve justice we must continuously work toward dismantling white supremacy, heteronormativity, patriarchy, and imperialism while building both socially and economically just futures.

HOPE

We see the possibility of a more loving and just future and we are fundamentally based in hope. We believe that people can come together and that the power of spreading light is real. We believe that systems can be changed and, when needed, dismantled. We believe that injustices can be overcome, and that when we come together, we have the ability to inspire and uplift one another. We believe that we have the power within ourselves to make our greatest hopes and dreams for this world a reality.

POSSIBILITY

We believe that, when in alignment, hearts and minds can meaningfully change and positively, creatively impact the world we live in. We see no limits to love, justice, and hope. We see the opportunity and possibilities to foster a brighter and better world. We know far more can be achieved!
