Our Revolution Trenton Mercer (ORTM) is a member-driven organization seeking to empower a broad coalition of grassroots activists to bring about needed progressive change. We are grounded in progressive values, and are committed to reflecting the diversity of all members of our community. We work to promote change by listening and responding to the needs of everyday people and working families, not just the wealthy and powerful.
Central to our mission is identifying and supporting candidates, so we can build both a down-ballot bench of progressive champions and support for a slate of progressive policies. ORTM works to hold elected officials accountable at all levels of government, from county committee and town council, all the way up to Trenton and Washington DC.
We are focused on educating and improving the public’s understanding of major policy issues, prioritizing fixing our primary ballots by Abolishing the Line, the implementation of Medicare for All and the Green New Deal, getting money out of politics, overturning structural racism, and fundamentally transforming both public safety and the criminal justice system.
