    DonateSign Up to VolunteerVisit Website

    Marilyn Strickland

    U.S. Congress (WA-10)

    Marilyn Strickland was born in Seoul, South Korea to a military family before coming to the United States in the 1960s. She was the popular two-term Mayor of Tacoma who ran on education and jobs and delivered. If elected to Congress, she will be the first African-American to represent Washington state at the federal level, and the first Korean-American Congresswoman in our nation's history. Marilyn is the kind of person you want as mayor – a bridge-builder who gets things done. That's the sort of leadership we need in Congress.

    Jermaine Johnson

    South Carolina House (SC-80)

    Jermaine was Chairman of my South Carolina campaign. He's one of the most energizing and inspiring people I’ve ever met.

He was a basketball star in college, going on to play professionally overseas. Now he's a non-profit leader, family man, and soon, South Carolina State Representative. Jermaine was the very first Humanity Forward challenger to win a competitive primary election. Against a 22-year incumbent nonetheless!

    U.S. Congress (MI-11)

    As the Chief of Staff for the Auto Rescue in 2009, Congresswoman Haley Stevens played a leading role in saving the American auto industry and bringing back over 200,000 jobs in her home state of Michigan. She’s helped create advanced manufacturing opportunities across the Midwest and helped create the White House Office of Manufacturing Policy under President Obama. Congresswoman Stevens has spent her career leading the mission to build an economy that works for people. She knows firsthand what it takes to rebuild from an economic crisis. That's why Congresswoman Stevens is an advocate of recurring monthly stimulus checks during this crisis. And it’s why we need to make sure she is re-elected this November.

Mondaire will be a champion for monthly stimulus checks in Congress. I’ve met Mondaire — he’s the real deal.

    Part of the reason I believe our Congress lacks urgency in solving national crises — like the economic crisis we're facing right now — is that most members of Congress are millionaires and lawyers. They have not experienced the pain of struggling to afford groceries or make rent or pay for health insurance. Julie Oliver is the kind of leader who will represent the urgent needs of people — because, growing up, she knew these struggles firsthand. Later, she worked in health care and was appointed to serve on the Board of Central Health for Austin, TX, where her mission was to deliver healthcare to low-income Texans. Now, she has the chance to flip a longtime Republican seat and fight for universal health care and monthly stimulus checks to help us recover and rebuild from this national crisis.

    U.S. Congress (TX-22)

    Sri served our nation overseas as a diplomat for more than 14 years, working to protect our national security and reduce conflict around the globe. But after seeing the hostility, fear and hatred spreading across our country over the last few years, he became concerned with problems here at home. Sri is running for Congress on a platform to increase economic opportunity and access to healthcare to all Americans during this crisis, including stimulus checks for American families. Sri’s ideas will move us forward.

    Dr. Al Gross

    U.S. Senate (Alaska)

    Dr. Al Gross is a commercial fisherman, an orthopedic surgeon, and a lifelong Alaskan. He is running for Senate as an independent. Al represents some of the best impulses in American politics. He's not fueled by ideology, but by what works for his community. Al's father helped create Alaska's oil dividend as state Attorney General. I'm excited to help send Al to Washington, where he will continue his father's legacy as a leader in the fight to create a more human-centered economy.

    Carlos Cardona

    New Hampshire House of Representatives (Belknap 3)

    Carlos was born in Puerto Rico before moving to New Hampshire as a teen who spent a period of time struggling with homelessness. I've spent a lot of time with Carlos as he was one of the first people to host an event for me in New Hampshire. His unrelenting determination to improve his community is evident. When Carlos was 17, he was appointed by the governor to chair a task force on homelessness in the state. Since then he has become a businessperson and activist as well as a parent. People already look to Carlos for leadership, and I believe he will make a fantastic rep in Concord.

    C.J. Petersen

    Iowa State Senate (SD-06)

    C.J. Petersen was born and raised in western Iowa where he lives with his fiancee. C.J. is not running to represent a political party, but to represent the interests of everyday Iowans. C.J. has a bold plan, dubbed the Homecomers Initiative, to reinvest in rural communities, which would include funding for Universal Basic Income pilots in Iowa. I have many fond memories from the campaign trail of Carroll, Storm Lake and nearby towns. These communities deserve a committed representative like C.J.

    Carolyn Long

    U.S. Congress (WA-03)

    Carolyn Long knows hard work. When her father suffered a hospitalization while Carolyn was in seventh grade, she and her mother stepped up to keep the family’s produce store running. Carolyn later put herself through college while working as a grocery clerk and went on to teach higher education at WSU Vancouver for 25 years. Carolyn’s experience in small businesses and as an essential worker make it natural for her to fight for monthly stimulus checks knowing the benefits that they will provide to Americans who are struggling today. We are excited to stand with Carolyn!

    Liam O'Mara

    U.S. Congress (CA-42)

    Liam O'Mara grew up a working class kid in a union household. His father worked on the docks and his Mom ran a daycare. The first in his family to go to college, Liam didn't start college until he was 30 but went on to get his PhD in history and become a professor. Liam gets real life but also gets the big picture. For those who are fed up with the same old politicians, Liam is a great candidate to support. He won his competitive primary and now faces a 27-year Republican incumbent. I'd love to see Liam fighting for better policies on Capitol Hill.

He’s spent his working life taking on Big Pharma and the health insurance companies — fighting to ensure every Texan has access to healthcare.

    Tom Palzewicz

    U.S. Congress (WI-05)

    Tom Palzewicz has integrity and grit. His focus is to create an environment in Washington where we put country over party. Our political system is broken and we need leaders such as Tom to restore it. When Tom ran in 2018, he narrowed the margins in his Wisconsin district by double digits. This year, he’ll get closer than ever, and if we fight hard enough, we’ll send him to Washington to help reshape our economy and put human beings first.

    Dana Balter

    U.S. Congress (NY-24)

    As a child, Dana Balter fought for her brother, who has cognitive disabilities, to make sure he had the resources he needed. As a young adult, Dana has experienced what it’s like to struggle from paycheck-to-paycheck. Dana has worked in disability services both as a teacher and nonprofit leader, helping hundreds of families access the support services they needed. Now, Dana Balter is running for Congress as an advocate for monthly cash relief. She’s the right person for the job because she has always been a fierce advocate for those in need. Let’s help her win.

    Cynthia Wallace

    U.S. Congress (NC-09)

    Cynthia Wallace is exactly the kind of leader we need in DC. She has been a teacher in our communities. She has built ladders for young people to achieve a higher education. She has experience serving as a leader in some of America's largest companies and as a community leader on the ground in North Carolina. Cynthia knows firsthand that our people need direct cash relief during this period of crisis -- that's why she supports monthly stimulus checks and that's why we need to get her to Congress! Cynthia is running in a tossup district that is trending blue for the first time in a long time. Let's help her win!

    Nancy Goroff

    Wouldn’t it be great to have more scientists in Congress? Nancy Goroff has served as Chair of the Chemistry Department at Stony Brook University on Long Island for years. She is a scientist and makes decisions based on the evidence and the facts. Her opponent is pretty much her polar opposite - Nancy would be an enormous upgrade. Dr. Goroff has committed to supporting monthly stimulus checks during this pandemic. Let’s help her win.
