Resurgent Left is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to supporting future leaders of the Democratic Party. We find promising progressive leaders running for office and provide them with institutional, financial, and network support to help them build winning campaigns. 

We see ourselves as the financial complement to the new wave of young Democrats running and winning around the U.S. Our membership base includes young progressive professionals across the country and across all demographics who treat our organization like another Netflix account — paying a small monthly membership fee that we pool and send to candidates. Since launching in late 2016, we have attracted thousands of members and have already helped elect several future leaders to office. As our membership grows and matures into the political donor base of the future, we will be a potent and sustainable force for the Democratic Party.

If you want to stay in touch, sign up for our mailing list! It’s free and we don’t bombard you.

  1. Find Future Democratic Leaders

    We identify promising candidates that represent the future of the Democratic Party. Our candidates are promising leaders from diverse backgrounds and committed to improving the lives of people in their communities.

    See our current list of endorsed candidates.

2. Raise Money

We believe progressivism wins when the message is made loud and clear. Unfortunately, "loud and clear" costs money. Our candidates are often first-time candidates who need money to develop name recognition and build a campaign.  We raise money for our special candidates in order to amplify their voices and help them win.

3. Support Our Candidates

In addition to providing our candidates with financial support, we can connect our candidates with highly reputable and invaluable resources needed to win a campaign, including campaign managers, tech gurus, media savvy firms, etc.

“Resurgent Left helped us prepare to hire a Field Director in June and rent office space by the beginning of July, both of which were ahead of schedule. Can't thank you enough, Resurgent Left!”

Donte Tanner, Former Candidate for Virginia State Assembly


Thanks to Resurgent Left, we were able to hire our Field Director earlier than planned. This means we can knock on more doors and talk to more voters in our district. We are building a grassroots campaign, and thanks to your gracious donation, we can now jump-start our canvassing operation!

Recent Updates:


In Los Angeles, we raised thousands of dollars for our candidates and had the pleasure of hosting a Q and A with Congressman Ted Lieu. We helped Democrats, learned a lot from our Congressman and had a blast! Be sure to attend our next event, coming to your town soon!
