I have compiled an Act Blue page which looks at the House, Senate and Governor's races in 2014 and looks for LGBT, women's rights, labor and other progressive organizations that we can support to win those races. These include some of the close races of 2014 (as well as some long shots) and helps to further the rights of workers, women, and LGBT. So far I have raised $95 for these races and causes. Can you help me get it to $250?

Please donate here to further progressive causes and win key races in 2014.

Details of what I cover below.

NH Young Democrats
New Hampshire is one of the smartest states in the union. They lean VERY progressive but also hold an independent, more conservative view that actually helps America. Even their Republicans aren't that bad and their Democrats are wonderful. The youth vote in NH will help continue this independent but progressive trend.

NH Stonewall Democrats
NH is a key state for marriage equality. If we want true equality to be acceptable to more conservative thinkers, then New Hampshire (and Iowa) are ground zero for our fight. Both states are fair minded so lean towards marriage equality despite and otherwise conservative view. Let's help equality in NH!

Alison Lundergan Grimes
KY-Sen
Mitch McConnell is one of the least popular Senators in America. He has blocked progress through the filibuster hundreds of times. He brags about being “a proud guardian of gridlock.” Yes...he is PROUD of stopping progress!

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is running for Senate against Mitch "Gridlock" McConnell and is tied in the polls with obstructionist Republican extremist McConnell. Moving forward means defeating McConnell to stop Republican obstructionism.

Kentucky Young Democrats
Moving America forward means reaching out to young voters and inspiring them. Let's help turn Kentucky blue using the youth vote!

Iowa Third Congressional District Democratic Central Committee

Iowa is always a big battleground. It has a long progressive tradition but also tends to lean right wing from time to time. Iowa's 3rd Congressional district is a true swing district in a true swing state. We have a shot at winning IA-3 in 2014 and that would be one more step towards winning back the House. Help win IA-3 for the left in 2014.

College and Young Democrats of Iowa PAC
Getting the youth vote out is critical for moving America forward and this is as true for Iowa as it is for anywhere. Young voters in Iowa can help determine the House and Senate in 2014. Let's help them out!

District 33 Democrats (AK)
Alaska is increasingly a swing state. This is not obvious in Presidential elections, but it is clear in other races. We have a long way to go, but 2014 will be a year where Democrats have a shot at winning in Alaska. Let's not waste it. Here is a local effort to turn Alaska a tad bluer.

Alaska Democratic Labor Caucus
Continuing the theme of turning Alaska into a real swing state, let's fight for worker's rights in Alaska!!

Alaskans Together for Equality
Can we make Alaska the next state to opt for true equality? It is not as far fetched as you might think! But we have to fight for it. Give to equality in Alaska!

Montana College Democrats
Montana is another state that is increasingly a swing state, though this isn't seen in Presidential races. But on all other levels Montana is turning more progressive. And the youth vote will help that trend, so let's help young people in Montana turn Montana blue!

Montana Indian Democrats Council
Native Americans are a voting bloc that is often ignored. Time to change that! Reaching out to the TRUE native Americans works to win key elections for Democrats and helps create a better life for one of America's most neglected communities. Let's empower Montana's Native American Democrats!

Montana Stonewall Democrats
Yep...even Montana will eventually go for marriage equality if we fight for it. I guarantee it. But we have to start fighting NOW.

Grassroots Farm Team
North Carolina is another state that is becoming a swing state. In this case EVEN for Presidential races! The Grassroots Farm Team recruits new, energetic Democrats to run in North Carolina, pushing for a real future for progressives in NC. Let's help them out!

Equality North Carolina
North Carolina is likely to be slower than Alaska or Montana in accepting marriage equality. But they will come around in the end. Let's push that day forward!

Arizona Women In Blue
Arizona is another swing state in many ways. We can move it further blue if we fight hard. Fighting for women's rights here is key.

LGBT Caucus Arizona Democratic Party
I predict Arizona will go for marriage equality even after North Carolina, and long after Alaska and Montana. But we need to start the battle here and now and not let the right feel safe even in Arizona.

Again, the next generation of voters already show a more progressive view. Let's get them voting!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
