The Working Families Party is regular people coming together across our differences to make a better future for us all. We’re a multiracial party that fights for workers over bosses and people over the powerful. We want an America which realizes the promise – unrealized in our history – of freedom and equality for all.

Votivate is a voterfile management and canvassing toolset that has been incubated by the Working Families Party since 2018. It has been used by hundreds of campaigns and organizations who either cannot afford other tools or who choose to build political power independently.
