2014 Elections Resources

CPUSA members are engaged in campaigns across the country to turn back the extreme right agenda. This page contains some tools, links and articles that can be helpful to your work.

Take the GOTV (Get Out The Vote) Challenge! 

We are urging members to take part in national phone banks once a week or more from now to Election Day, door to door canvassing and travel to battleground states. Let us know that you are taking the challenge or if you are interested in traveling to a battleground state or district by emailing: politicalaction@cpusa.org 
Sign up here for the AFL-CIO online phone bank and make calls from wherever you are.
Sign up here for the MoveOn national online phone bank to Save the Senate.

Sign up here for the Democracy For America “DFA Dialer”  

If you live in a battleground state or district, you can take part in door knocking or phone banks with union or community groups. Contact your local labor council, MoveOn.org, NAACP, NOW chapter, immigration rights or other grassroots political organization.

Take part in the “Turn Out for What?” campaign by AFSCME.

US Senate scorecard: who holds the majority makes a difference


    The Communist Party USA is a  revolutionary working-class  political party founded in 1919 in Chicago, IL. The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign. But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit — socialism. We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms.
