Both Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress have been snowballing support nationwide for viable progressive candidates. Along with the support their name brings, they offer consulting, fundraising, and above all a unified slate of extraordinarily ordinary people – running candidates that are a true reflection of the communities they serve. Additionally all candidates are required to pledge not to take any corporate PAC or corporate lobbyist money.
Justice Democrats was created by Cenk Uygur, CEO of The Young Turks, Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk and Zack Exley and Saikat Chakrabarti. Zack and Saikat are former Bernie Sanders campaign staffers.
Brand New Congress is running a slate of candidates regardless of their party affiliation, breaking down party politics to have a true post partisan Congress.
