We are building a movement to transform our politics and revitalize our democracy.

We believe we should expect more from our political leaders — that courage, integrity, and empathy aren't too much to ask for.

We support outstanding military veterans and national service leaders who step up to serve our country again, this time through politics — from Congress to school board.

Our lack of political leadership is not for a lack of leaders. There is a new generation of committed citizens, forged by service, who have created change and exercised leadership in communities across our country and around the world. We now call on them to continue their service to our country in elected office — to transform our politics, bring our country together, and revitalize our democracy. It's time for political leaders who are guided by the call to serve and a shared sense of purpose for America — leaders who are committed to putting country over party and people over partisan politics.

Mission

We need those who have put everything aside to serve America outside of politics to continue to serve our country — now as political leaders.

At a time when national politics is so broken, we are in desperate need of a new generation of leaders who cut their teeth on public service. Recruiting these leaders and giving them the resources to run for public office may be our best hope of breaking out of today’s mess.
— David Gergen, advisor to four U.S. presidents

Candidates

To break down the significant barriers to successfully running for office, we support the whole leader every step of the way and at every level — from school board to Congress and on both sides of the aisle.

In the news

Our candidates and elected office holders are changing and challenging the political landscape every day. Follow them on their journeys, and join us in this movement.

“While many around the country thought my race was unwinnable, New Politics was there from the beginning as a trusted partner, advisor, and advocate of public service candidates. It means so much to be part of the New Politics community and build this movement with them.”
— Representative Mikie Sherrill, NJ-11
