How We Win

How We Win

The Official Podcast of the Persistence! For the past 4 years, we’ve been making history in critical elections all over the country, and last year we made history again by expanding our majority in the Senate, beating election-denying republicans in crucial statehouse races, and fighting back a non-existent red wave. But our freedoms are still under attack and we must keep fighting to build a just and equitable America for us all. Every week we take you behind the lines and inside the "rooms where it happens" with strategy, and inspiration from progressive change makers all over our country! And we give you the tools you need to make an immediate impact on our most critical races.
