We collect, analyze, and share the best timely examples of red state advocacy wins. These case studies take us inside some of the most challenging political climates in America, to learn how advocates got it done, identify elements of strategy, tactics, or message that can be replicated by other advocates. We share these best practices in a digestible way that helps advocates apply them to their own work.
Red Lens is different from broader efforts aimed at rehabilitating government in the public consciousness. Since advocates work through government, these broader efforts are also important. But Red Lens is about mapping out specific policy wins in red states, learning the success stories behind them, and sharing those successes with the broader community of advocates. We see our work as contributing to broader conversation-change efforts, as well, by providing concrete examples of government acting too solve real problems for real people.
