Working Families Party 2020 Presidential Candidate Questionnaire


The Working Families Party is fighting for a nation that works for the many, not just the few. We are building a multiracial working class movement to transform America.

No matter what you look like or where you’re from, most of us want the same things. We want to earn enough to thrive, not just survive, and to leave a better future for our kids. We want healthy food and clean water, safe neighborhoods and a safe world. We want to contribute to something bigger than ourselves. We want to be free.

But the richest people on Earth and the political insiders who serve them have rigged the rules to grab up wealth and power for themselves. And they point the finger to blame people of color or immigrants or poor people -- all so WE don’t stand united and see what we have in common.

In the fight for a nation rooted in equality, solidarity and compassion, there is no more urgent goal than defeating Donald Trump in the 2020 elections. It is with that goal in mind that we invite progressive Democratic candidates running for President to seek the endorsement of the Working Families Party.

Please complete the short questionnaire below to seek WFP’s support by June 26th. The WFP Executive Committee will use this application to narrow down the field of candidates to invite into our endorsement process, including joining a live-streamed interview with WFP leaders and members.

Note: ordinarily, our candidate questionnaires are lengthy documents that cover a multitude of policy questions. In the presidential race, where candidates provide dozens of statements and interviews on those issues, we felt that was not necessary. As such, this questionnaire is brief -- just five questions. Consider it the beginning of our conversation.
