Somewhere along the way, you realized you're a progressive changemaker.
Who knows when it happened. Maybe when you first volunteered for an election. Maybe when you organized friends into your first coalition. Maybe when you became a student leader. Maybe you’ve just always loved that feeling of pushing, pushing, pushing yourself ... and then winning.

About The Fairness Project
While Congress and state legislatures across the country remain paralyzed by partisan disagreement, ballot initiatives provide a path forward for improving millions of lives. The Fairness Project (TFP) incubates, funds, and provides strategic and technical assistance to state and municipal ballot initiative campaigns and drives a national narrative to elevate economic fairness issues. Through ballot initiatives, TFP offers voters the opportunity to do what politicians cannot or will not: take direct action to enact sound economic policy and change their own lives.
This summer, TFP worked with state-based groups on ballot measures to deliver big Medicaid expansion wins in Oklahoma and Missouri. In the 2018 election cycle, TFP helped raise the minimum wage in Missouri, Arkansas, and Massachusetts; provided paid sick leave in San Antonio and Michigan; and expanded Medicaid in Idaho, Nebraska, and Utah.
In 2017, TFP was a crucial player in the nation’s first successful ballot campaign to expand Medicaid in Maine. And in 2016, TFP partnered with grassroots organizations in six states on ballot initiatives to raise the minimum wage, two of which also guaranteed paid sick and safe leave.
To date, the organization has won 18 of its 19 campaigns, changed more than 15 million lives, delivered health care for 830,000 people, and put more than $15.6 billion in working families’ pockets.
