Casper, WY | Natrona County
We are your local continuation of the movement Bernie Sanders started in 2016. Jane Sanders aptly said on June 2, 2018 at the Left Forum 2018 in NYC, "The Democratic Party has to become a progressive party. If it does not...there will be a continued loss of faith in the electoral process and there will be a third party." ORC represents the seeds of that potential third party and also presents a cautionary tale to the Democratic Party of the critical importance of returning to its New Deal populist, progressive roots. Where our members may work on campaigns for candidates they deem worthy irrespective of their party affiliation, we stubbornly believe it is critical to remain independent of any political party. Our mission is to restore Wyoming to its progressive, populist roots by increasing our capacity to effectively communicate our values and have conversations that change minds, empowering individuals to organize around the issues that matter to them, and fight injustice.
