Left Up To Us is a new Austin-based group which is answering Bernie Sanders’ call for a Political Revolution.

- Our mission is to politically engage and educate the community.
- We support local candidates who reflect Bernie Sanders' values.
- We also advocate for issues and promote legislation
- We accomplish all of this by organizing grassroots volunteers like YOU!
- Our organization is democratic, inclusive, respectful, and empowering.

We determine which candidates, legislation, and causes we support based on how well we believe they would promote-
· Fighting the corrupting influence of money in the political system
· Income and wealth equality
· Universal access to healthcare, education, and food
· Environmental protection
· A humane criminal justice system
· Social and economic justice, and workers' rights
· Many other progressive causes

We are researching and vetting candidates for elected office at all levels of government. We are grading Austin area candidates on how well they reflect Bernie Sanders' values by analyzing their records, campaign financing, policy stances, and more. This fall, we will be mobilizing volunteers to canvass and phonebank for the candidates with the highest grades in competitive races.

We will be undertaking other efforts to politically engage the community, using the same strategies that we learned through volunteering for the Bernie Sanders campaign to canvass neighborhoods and identify those who share our values and help them learn about the many issues which effect their communities and what they can do to get involved.
