Grassroots Campaigns is a progressive organization that specializes in running face-to-face campaigns for political parties, candidates, and advocacy groups. By running campaigns on behalf of groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union, Democratic National Committee, the Nature Conservancy and Oxfam America they can focus on building up their membership and base of support. Also, through running field campaigns for candidates and other political organizations they can mobilize citizens to be more actively engaged and involved in politics. Since 2003, Grassroots Campaigns has worked with many of the most progressive organizations and political candidates to date. Their campaigns have been on the front line of a variety of social change movements and historic elections. Their goal is to grow the progressive movement through face-to-face outreach. In addition to running ongoing small-donor fundraising canvasses throughout the U.S., Grassroots Campaigns also has more than a decade of experience running cutting-edge voter contact, volunteer organizing, and grassroots advocacy campaigns on behalf of progressive political groups and candidates.
