We are a PAC committed to promoting the election of progressive candidates to political office. One By One, we can shift the balance to a government that consistently promotes all rights for all people.
Individual state and federal election laws set limits on the amount a person can contribute to a political candidate. A political action committee (PAC) is an organization registered with the United States government designed to pool individual's money together to create a larger contribution to a candidate. PACs are required to collect information from contributors and report regularly to the Federal Election Commission (FEC). PACs usually self-fund their operating costs through a portion of member contributions. There are limits set by the FEC as to how much a PAC can contribute to a candidate during each election cycle.
One By One was conceived as a place where people could feel they were always doing something in today's challenging political climate, even if they don't feel they have a particular skill set to contribute to a given task, or time in a month to actively engage. By pooling our dollars, we are all still putting our contributions toward the larger goal.
