it started when two people sat down for coffee...
and started to talk about their anxiety
after the 2016 election...
Anxiety gave way to action and in a short time a dozen people in the Boston area were a team focused on flipping the House in 2018 in order to check Republican power.
Through relational networking we talked with everyone we could think of and then some, believing that every network leads to another network and that we could get others to join us. It worked.
In 2018 mid terms: we built a community of 1,300 people and raised almost $700,000 for our 15 House candidates.
13 of our candidates won!
Force Multiplier is an all volunteer organization that raises funds for Democratic candidates and grassroots groups doing voter empowerment work.
All donations go directly to candidates or groups through Act Blue.
We do the research so you don’t have to.
We make it easy to do one click donating.
Going forward, Force Multiplier’s strategy is to protect our majority in the House, flip the Senate and support voters in states that will have a high impact on who carries the electoral college.
Although we will not be fundraising directly for the Presidential election, supporting candidates and voter empowerment groups in these high-impact states will bring out the vote for the Democratic Presidential candidate and help Democrats up and down the ballot. Regardless of who wins the Presidency it is essential to have a Democratic House and Senate to move our country forward.
FM is ready
to be bold and work with passion and urgency to achieve our new goals, with the help of our vibrant ever-expanding network.
We hope to raise $2,020,000 more by November 2020.
We have lots of work to do.
In 2020 we will focus on 3 THINGS:
in the House:
We will support the newly-elected members of Congress who flipped their districts in the mid-terms. It took a historic Blue Wave of Democratic voters to squeak out close wins in many of the 40 districts that flipped in 2018. The Republicans only need to win back 18 of those seats to regain the majority. In many districts all that’s needed is a shift of a few thousand votes. All of the candidates Force Multiplier supported in 2018 have already been targeted by the GOP. Our early support helps these Reps discourage challengers, hire staff and mobilize voters.

Cindy Axne (IA 03) | Jared Golden (ME 02) | Lizzie Fletcher (TX 07) | Abby Finkenauer (IA 01) | Lucy McBath (GA 06) | Tom Malinowski (NJ 07) | Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (FLA 26) | Elissa Slokin (MI 08) | Abigail Spanberger (VA 07) | Susan Wild (PA 07)
supporting voter empowerment efforts:
In 2020 we may not know all the candidates for a while yet but we can begin by supporting groups that are registering and organizing voters in high-impact states. Many of these states are the worst offenders when it comes to voter suppression and gerrymandering. Creating another Blue Wave in 2020 means registering and turning out voters.
in the Senate:
We need to pick up 4 seats to flip the Senate. Two of our best opportunities are Maine and North Carolina. Since primaries have not yet been held, we are using Act Blue's Nominee Funds, which ensure that your dollars will go to a candidate will go to the eventual Democratic Senate challenger.
