Our country is in crisis.

Shahid Buttar is an advocate that has fought for the future for 20 years, not a politician that seeks popularity over principles. When defending communities, challenging corruption, and establishing new rights, he has taken positions unpopular at the time:

  • When he fought for LGBTQ marriage equality in 2004, it wasn’t popular.
  • When he organized direct action to stop Bush’s wars, it wasn’t always popular.
  • When he challenged Obama’s administration as a non-profit leader defending civil liberties from a bipartisan assault, it was not popular among many Democrats.
  • And when he challenged the most powerful Democrat in Congress in 2018 and 2020, it was certainly not popular among supporters of her party.

The climate crisis, emergent authoritarianism, and white supremacy are all the results of indefensible policy choices by a Congress composed of millionaires. The class war they have waged on working families across the United States demands accountability. The future we all share demands our solidarity.

Vote for change on June 7, 2022!

We're building momentum.

In 2020, we won more votes to replace Nancy Pelosi than any challenge she has ever faced in the 34 years she has held her seat in Congress. We overcame a global pandemic, a corporate media whiteout, a 15:1 fundraising deficit, and an attempted character assassination by Democratic Party operatives wielding disinformation and amplifying racist & Islamophobic dogwhistles.

The 81,000 votes we won were not enough to liberate her seat—but our momentum helped move half a dozen policies through the House over Pelosi’s initial objections, by forcing changes in her positions on issues from worker rights to civil rights, funding the U.S. Postal Service, and impeaching Trump.

People over profit.

Defund the police
Demilitarize the country
Dismantle mass surveillance

We live in the most heavily monitored country in the world, yet our political system prefers to delude itself with lies about freedom and liberty. We have more people behind bars than any other, militarized borders with mass detention camps, and federal budget priorities that emphasize weapons over food, housing, or healthcare.

Green New Deal and Equitable Sustainability

The mounting global climate catastrophe is already killing thousands every year. From catastrophic wildfires every year to the historic drought that has helped ensure them, its impacts are being felt with increasing severity. Yet Democrats in Washington continue to dither, delaying direly urgent climate action while mouthing slogans about believing science.

Healthcare as a Human Right

We’re living through a global pandemic, yet Washington continues to deny the human right to universal healthcare long established across the rest of the world. That’s almost a million Americans dead—and counting—because Democrats led by Pelosi have put the profits of insurance companies before public health.
