Running Expansive Campaigns

In this edition we were joined by some of our progressive U.S. Senate candidates to explain the importance of Additory campaigning. Additory campaigns focus more on the voter than the candidate and they include modes of interacting with voters that go beyond the normal transactional nature of traditional campaigns.

Watch as DFA's CEO Yvette Simpson, Rev. Raphael Warnock, Betsy Sweet, Royce West, and Jaime Harrison — moderated by DFA Political Director Mondale Robinson — offer a great introduction to expansive campaigning.
