WHO WE ARE
Rose Caucus is an organization whose goal is elevating working-class and socialist candidates to positions of power by providing policy framework support and building the professional bench required to run effective left campaigns. Our candidate slate hosts US Senate, US Congress, and state legislative candidates.
All slate members take the same pledge of solidarity, a promise to do the following:
Publicly identify as socialist and/or anti-capitalist.
Adopt & help develop a comprehensive Peoples' Platform.
Refuse all corporate money.
Participate in mutual aid/community service efforts.
Center marginalized voices in their campaign messaging and staff.
When it comes to additions, changes, discussion, and the ratification of the unified platform, all campaigns and candidates have agreed to operate in good faith and abide by a process that is democratic, centers on unity, and is responsive to the needs of impacted communities.
Sitting legislators who meet these criteria are invited to join us in solidarity to fight for the interests of working-class people. We are also seeking activists & organizers who want to build power for working-class people to help us shape our platform and develop the necessary experience to win elections.
Additionally, we want to encourage grassroots organizations across the country to reach out; help us develop, refine, and clarify our platform. Not only does our coalition want buy-in from groups such as yours, it’s made up of folks who already organize in many of your spaces.
Together, we’ll change everything.
Rose Caucus works collaboratively on many exciting planks, that we hope will help improve countless lives. We use a unity-based approach to determine our platform. Read on to learn more about what we do, who we represent, and how we are working every day to create change.
The climate crisis presents the greatest engineering challenge the world has ever faced. A Green New Deal will allow us to rapidly transition to a zero-carbon economy while leading by example on the world stage.
The US may be a democracy at the ballot box, regular people have very little say in how our workplaces run. Most Americans are working-class, and when union membership was at its highest levels, working families had a much higher standard of living.
HEALTHCARE 4 ALL
Healthcare is a human right. We don’t have to settle for paying twice as much as Europe and Canada and receiving worse care; we can save trillions of dollars and thousands of lives by covering everyone with truly universal healthcare.
