What is Rust Belt Rising? 

Rust Belt Rising helps Democrats be the party of working people by training candidates on connecting effectively with Midwestern families and winning seats.

We are committed to advancing a Democratic Party whose leadership reflects our diverse coalition and are proud to offer all of our services free of charge.
