“A key takeaway from the last 3 election cycles is that if we want better policies, we need better candidates that will lead our country forward. AFP Action is supporting these candidates because they are strong advocates for policies that will improve the lives of all Americans. We will bring the full force of our grassroots network and data capabilities to ensure they win in 2024.”
