Our Mission

Blue Rising Political Action Committee was formed in the aftermath of the November 2016 election to fuel resistance to the Trump Presidency and the radical right-wing agenda of Congress. Blue Rising supports Democratic candidates at the Federal level who will champion the rights of women, people of color, immigrants and the LGBTQ community. Our mission is to help elect leaders who will work to reduce gun violence, combat climate change, provide access to affordable health care, protect our civil liberties and fight for the rights of all Americans regardless of gender, race, religion, class, or ethnicity.


“The most common way people give up power is by thinking they don’t have any.”

Alice Walker
