Uplift Syracuse is a group of progressive political activists, who have made it their focus this fall to break up the Republican Super Majority on the County Legislature.
Uplift Syracuse has endorsed Democratic candidates: Tom Buckel, Mark Matt, Chuck Keller, Pete Ludden and Stefanie Heath. They have been creating weekly events to canvas and phonebank for these candidates, with good results. They’re helping to create content for social media, and doing outreach on college campuses to engage students in the local political process.

All donation levels accepted.
Come join Uplift Syracuse for a night of great music, good friends, and come discuss how we can make Syracuse a more equitable city, and Onondaga County a more progressive and beautiful place to live.
Uplift Syracuse is a progressive advocacy group, working to create a more equitable city by supporting social justice efforts throughout the surrounding region.
They’re developing a grassroots network to push for changes we hope to see in New York; including a single payer healthcare system, a transition to renewable energy, increased educational funding and equality, housing and economic justice, and reversing the trends in urban segregation.
Uplift Syracuse plans to organize events that will increase outreach efforts and education, to actualize this vision. And will support progressive candidates running for public office who share these goals, and continue to push for legislative and electoral change at the city, county, and state level.
