A campaign with unaddressed pain points does not thrive. We can change the course of the campaign's effectiveness by creating safe space for staff, volunteers, and leadership to share information about unmet needs in fast-paced conditions, unskillful management, cultural friction, hostile environments, and more. A candidate who is willing to invest in the organizational health of their active supporters and staff is a candidate worth fighting for.
