Members pay dues.
Building a powerful grassroots organization takes resources: paying our staff members a living wage, running communications campaigns, eventually rent for an office, printing flyers, running a robust canvass operation, running issue campaigns, and more. Building independent political power means building an organization that is proudly self-funded, by members. Paying membership dues is an important expression of members’ ownership of York Stands Up.
