Fair Share in Action

Fair Share Action stands for an America where everyone gets their fair share, does their fair share, and pays their fair share; and where everyone plays by the same rules.

We work to provide every American with a fair shot at a good job, a secure future and a strong voice in our democracy. We elect public officials who stick up for working families at all levels of government. We use tactics that promote citizen engagement and empower people to make a difference on issues that affect their daily lives.

We have a multi-issue agenda that includes tackling the COVID crisis, closing corporate tax loopholes, ending childhood hunger, growing a strong middle class, and fighting for a future that gives all Americans — not just the powerful or the lucky or the super-talented few — the opportunity to lead fulfilling lives as our economy changes.

Colorado Neighborhood Vote Project

We are mobilizing 60,000 people who don’t always vote, letting each of them know that we need them to cast their ballots in the 2020 election. We are focused on some of the closest races in the state, where the outcome will make a difference in how Colorado and our country tackle issues like COVID and our economy. The margins of victory in these races are expected to be small, so neighbors turning out neighbors who might not otherwise vote could be a key part of the final outcome. We can’t do it alone, so we’re asking everyone to join our Neighborhood Vote Project with online events, phone banks, and more.

Florida Vote By Mail 2020

Fair Share Action conducted a Florida calling campaign in August and September of 2020 in partnership with Florida America Votes, assisting Florida voters to be able to vote safely from home during a pandemic by submitting a vote by mail application. Fair Share Action’s telephone organizers called a list of over 400,000 registered Florida voters who had just received a letter in the mail containing an application to vote by mail. The Fair Share Action team explained to voters the process for submitting their absentee ballot applications and encouraged them to do so if they preferred to vote in this way.  In total the project reached 35,724 Florida voters with this message.
