About this Giving Circle

We at One State at a Time believe that the most meaningful way of achieving lasting political change in our country is by starting from the ground up at the state legislative level. Democracy is not a spectator sport, and we seek to engage our members beyond a financial contribution with events, meetings, and grassroots engagement opportunities. There is no minimum contribution to join our effort, and all members have the same opportunity for involvement.

For the 2018 election cycle, One State at a Time raised $230,000 which we used to support candidates running for the Michigan State House. We are thrilled to report that our remarkable candidates won six seats in critical districts. These new legislators will fight hard for clean water, better schools and healthcare, and will shift dynamics in the House by forcing compromise on issues central to the rights and welfare of the people of Michigan.

Our work has just begun. Please join us as we seek to alter the course of history, one state at a time. To 2020 and beyond!


Michigan has continued to exacerbate the still-unresolved Flint water crisis, thwarted paid sick leave and worked to undermine Medicaid expansion by limiting care based on a racially inequitable model.
