Code Blue Nation, the time has come for us to become more than a secret Facebook group. I wanted to make sure that this group had the staying power and the passion to fulfill its mission before we became a more formal organization. After more than 6 months and more than 24,000 Americans and growing, it is safe to say we have what it takes!

There are a lot of worthy progressive democratic organizations, some old and some new. However, Code Blue has the broadest mission; we are looking way past 2018. It is not just enough to flip Congress. What then? What about your local neighborhood, school board, and statehouse? We have to be ready to keep on defending democracy from your neighborhood all the way to congress. 

To fulfill these goals we’re going to form a non-profit (most likely a general 527 and then possibly some other entities as legal experts recommend) This will require:

-Legal fees
-Accounting fees
-Filing fees for state and federal forms
-Insurance
-An annual fee for the state of California 

We need to raise approximately $5,000 to cover just these costs. However but we’re going to set the bar higher at $50,000 and create a general annual fund so Code Blue can get office space, hire some staff (assuming we raise enough), build a more robust website, produce voter education materials, and continue to build a more effective organization. 

You should know that myself and members of the board who will oversee this nonprofit will not be paid employees.  Our goal is to operate the group with financial transparency. We’d like Code Blue to be as mean and lean as possible to make sure that your donations are used in the most effective way to rebuild a healthy blue majority in every level of government.
