Rapid Resist

The largest peer texting operation in the U.S. in 2017, Resistance Labs helps progressive leaders in rural and conservative areas improve the lives of those left out of economic progress. Resistance Labs manages a 501(c)4, Rapid Resist, that mobilizes via text for organizers pushing key Republican legislators. Rapid Resist has recruited over 100,00 new activists in red areas, shut down judicial nominees, and flipped votes on health care. The new Contest Every Race campaign aims to end uncontested races by recruiting thousands predominantly female candidates to run for office, using texts to set up meetings between local county party chairs and potential candidates.
