314 Action is nationwide organization dedicated to electing Democratic scientists to all levels of public office. In the November 2018 elections, 314 Action's scientists lead the charge to take back the House, with 9 wins for crucial House and Senate races, while raising over $5 million in the 2018 election cycle. 314 Action was recently featured in the New York Times and HBO's Vice News Tonight recently covered our first cycle. For 2020, we led the effort to draft Mark Kelly for AZ's Senate race and are working to recruit other scientists at all levels.
For 2020, we're focused on recruiting scientists to run in 25 key Congressional districts across the country and in other key down-ballot races. We will raise $20-$25 million, and leverage our grassroots network of nearly 1 million scientists and STEM advocates on behalf of our campaigns, while providing strategic and other support. 314 Action is currently seeking entry level campaign staff willing to work with great candidates all across the country.
