Mobilize Missouri is an official chapter of Our Revolution, the political organization that sprung from the Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign. They seek to continue the vision laid out by the Sanders platform by supporting the ongoing movement sparked by the campaign and endorsing candidates that align with the organizations stances on issues.
The Our Revolution Mission
Our Revolution will reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the “political revolution.” Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.
Our Revolution has three intertwined goals: to revitalize American democracy, empower progressive leaders and elevate the political consciousness.

Our Beginnings: STL for Bernie, 2016
When Sen. Bernie Sanders launched his campaign to run for President his message all along was about bringing a political revolution to this country and to get people involved in the process. It was never just about him winning the Presidency, it was about changing the minds of millions of Americans and reinvigorating voters to get engaged and stay engaged long after the November elections.
We had an incredible run with St. Louis for Bernie Sanders; a huge picnic, debate watch parties, over a dozen trips to Iowa and a huge mobilization working directly with Bernie’s national campaign staff for what ended up being basically a tie here in Missouri. Because of that, St. Louis for Bernie Sanders made the transition to Mobilize Missouri and joined Our Revolution.
Our goal is simple: To help coordinate the patchwork of Bernie’s grassroots organizers in St. Louis and across Missouri and to make sure we get progressive candidates elected to offices up and down the ticket. We have taken the volunteer base that came together for Bernie and kept it active to fight for Bernie’s revolution.
