Be the Change Bmore helps connect people with issues and campaigns that can use their contributions of time and money. We support a range of progressive candidates and important reforms. As we work together, we build a sense of community.
Our major focus through November 3, 2020 is the election because it is clear that change is essential to saving and building our democracy. However, we don’t want to forget issues and people needing our support now.
We will keep this page updated as we learn about more effective organizations and efforts. Please let us know what you hear about.
