Seek challenges.

We constantly seek out where we can add to the overall progress and success of the movement, especially when that means taking on hard or unfunded problems.

Make the team work.

We value each member of the movement and go above and beyond to support others’ work when given the opportunity.

Work on the biggest picture.

We constantly seek out gaps in the progressive movement ecosystem, “zigging where others zag” in the effort to build power for poor and marginalized people.

Equity matters. Emotional intelligence matters.

Our work centers Black and brown communities and we work in solidarity with organizers and organizations that are authentic leaders of their communities. Our work is done respectfully and with emotional intelligence.

Measure the impact.

We measure and analyze our work and constantly interrogate the impact of our work to be sure we are having the impact we want.
