Our partners at Renew U.S. are still accepting submissions for their upcoming campaign manager training! They’re training hundreds of first-time campaign managers to run electoral, issues, and ballot initiative campaigns in state legislatures, focusing on 14 states across the country. Learn more about the training and sign up!

January is a special month at Rights & Democracy, one full of assessment and preparation. In each state, we’re at a moment of opportunity.

In Vermont and New Hampshire we have critical midterm races, key legislative fights, and a chance to elect school board candidates who are committed to truth and equity in our schools.

As one of the largest, fastest-growing member-based organizations focused on electoral organizing across both states, our member base is stronger than ever. If you are not a member yet, become one today to join this example of true movement governance. We want your voice in our endorsement process this year!

Stay tuned for some big announcements at the end of the month and into February; we’re building a lot in 2022, and we’re just getting started.

In solidarity,


We believe that all of our Vermont youth deserve culturally responsive and fact-based curricula, equitable access to educational resources, and a safe school environment. We’ve seen a rise in powerful interests determined to silence critical dialogue and sow division, so in 2022 we’re working to shift the narrative and support local leaders. Learn more and help us in this fight by signing the petition.
