About All Hands on Deck Network
All Hands On Deck is a new national effort to use creativity and advanced strategy to focus our collective people power on key moments of crisis or opportunity where doing one little thing could make a big positive difference (see Malcolm Gladwell’s book The Tipping Point).
Our mission is exactly what it sounds like: We identify potential crises or strategic opportunities where a little extra push might make a world of difference, we shout: “All Hands On Deck!” and we organize as many people and organizations as we can around a common goal.
We invite you to join us. If we all seize the day, we could avert disaster –and tip the balance of history.
All Hands On Deck Network has a beautiful long-term transformative vision (you’ll hear more about this over the coming months). But at the moment, we are focused on one thing: The 2012 Election.
The 2012 election is not a hope election. It’s a fear election. It’s about how much worse things will be if we allow right-wing corporate ideologues to take over all three branches of our government. That is what they are gunning for: A Tea Party Trifecta –right-wing control over the Presidency, the Congress, and the Supreme Court.
Everything we care about is at stake.
War, youth, women, the climate, LGBT rights, immigrant rights, voting rights, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Pell grants, food stamps, the Supreme Court, the middle class, labor unions… you name it!
The Presidential election will be decided in 6-14 states. Control of the Senate will be decided in 8-12 states. It’s likely there will be razor thin margins in one or more states. We are deploying 100 young organizers in at least 12 key states to get out unlikely young progressive voters to help push these races over the top.
