This website is produced for the public, to respond to the question: “Where is my donation or volunteering likely to make the greatest difference in helping Democrats retain control of the Senate and House in 2022?"
We rely on the advice of a number of leading political experts for the information and recommendations on this website -- we keep in close touch with them, and update the website regularly. Some of the experts are based in Washington DC, some in other parts of the country.
Ten Dems is an independent group of grassroots volunteers from across the country; the network was founded in 2017, at that time called Take Back Congress Network, in 2019-20 called Win2020 Network.
The three of us who manage Ten Dems are independent and working without pay. We are registered Democrats but not part of any Democratic Party entity.
We met long ago while students at Stanford University. Our careers took us in different directions: one to law, Amnesty International and international human rights work; another to finance, then writing fiction, then teaching English as a Second Language to immigrants; the third to business and then to serving on the boards of companies and non-profit organizations.
What brought us together again was our shared objective to do all that we can to support Democratic candidates who are committed to equality, the rule of law, quality and affordable health care and education for all, environmental protection, and global respect for human rights.
