Up2Us Steps Up!

For the past three years, Up2Us has driven political action to support Democrats across NY and the USA. We have petitioned, trained, canvassed, registered voters, phone-banked and staffed several campaign offices.

But we have done more than that. We have stepped up.

In 2017, three of our members-- Kristen Browde, Gail Markels and Ivy Pool, ran for the Town of New Castle Town Board, resulting in a gain of one seat.

In May of 2018 , our Executive Director, Holly McCall, ran successfully for the Board of Education in the Chappaqua School District.

One of our founding Board Members, Francesca Hagadus is currently running for Town Council in the Town of Mt. Pleasant, NY.

We are enormously proud of these members who have had the courage to put their names on ballots.

We are equally proud when candidates and electeds join.

If there are any other of our over 4000 members who are running or considering a run for office, please shout out below!

It’s Up2Us!
