Contest Every Race Grant

Contest Every Race Grant

Cache Dems recently received a grant from the Contest Every Race organization.

Contest Every Race Mission Statement

The biggest problem facing the Democratic Party and our small d “democracy” is how badly we, as Democrats, are getting overtaken at the local level, especially in non-urban areas, by Republicans and the radical right. Over the last twenty years, we’ve been outspent and out organized in non-urban communities.We’re leaving nearly 100,000 elections uncontested every year, which has huge implications on everything we care about as progressives. And the folks on the front-lines of this problem - rural Democratic county parties or progressive organizers - don’t have the support they need to win.

How does the Grant help us?

The Contest Every Race grants program grants funding and recruitment support to non-urban county Democratic party organizations and offers training, coaching and tech tools to help grow the capacity of these critical rural organizations.
