The People’s Campaign is a grassroots political action committee. Our purpose is to change politics and policy in ways that positively impact People by:
Persuading middle class, working class and economically struggling people to participate with a purpose and vote in their own best interests;
Reinforcing the work of social justice organizations in the political realm and
Fostering moral progressivism.
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
To change the political landscape in ways that positively impact The People.
Abraham Lincoln stated, in his Gettysburg Address, “we here highly resolve . . . that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
Yet today, given recent court rulings, PACs have a greater influence on the outcomes of elections than ever before. The vast majority of the time that influence is exerted by corporate interests and political leaders in the furtherance of their special interests.
There are Political Action Committees that seek to influence elections based upon their respective ideological missions, but such PACs are generally focused upon a single issue or a cluster of very closely related issues. Additionally, labor union oriented PACs seek to influence elections in a manner that’s favorable to labor. Certainly, these PACs represent the interests and concerns of certain sectors of “the people”, but they do not comprehensively represent the interests of “the People”.
So based upon the necessity of sustaining a people driven democratic form of government and the ever increasing influence of PACs upon our political landscape, it is imperative that a PAC, such as The People’s Campaign, exists and operates in the furtherance of what is best for the People.
