IS THIS A POLITICAL PARTY?

No. 

DO I NEED TO CHANGE MY POSITION ON ISSUES?

Absolutely not. We don't want anyone to change their party, or their beliefs -- in fact, bringing those affiliations and beliefs to the table is important. We need to have multiple voices and multiple perspectives, and working on solutions will require support across the political spectrum. 

 

That being said, if you're feeling that other members of your party are adopting extreme views beyond what you're comfortable with, or that you don't align with the majority of other party members, this could be the place to participate. 

WHY AREN'T ISSUES LIKE CLIMATE CHANGE, MINIMUM WAGE, HEALTHCARE AND IMMIGRATION INCLUDED ON THE PROBLEMS PAGE?

Majority in the Middle is focused on issues that contribute to or enable unproductive divisions in our civic culture, which make finding common ground on other subjects (like climate change, healthcare, immigration, etc.) almost impossible. 

We're pretty sure that if we can fix the extremism and incivility in our politics, that may make tackling other issues easier for everyone. 

HOW IS THE ORGANIZATION FUNDED?

Majority in the Middle is in startup mode and is in the process of getting 501(c)3 designation. For the first several months, all of our costs were coming out of our founder's pocket, and we started fundraising in February 2021. If you'd like to donate, we'd love the support!
