More About New Politics

New Politics revitalizes American democracy by recruiting, developing, and electing servant leaders who put community and country over self.

They support outstanding military veterans and national service leaders, alumni of programs like Americorps and the Peace Corps, to step up and serve our country again, this time through politics. They were proud to be behind the movement of veterans who ran for office for the first time in 2018, and we have big plans to grow into the future
