Solidarity Strategies is built on lasting relationships

In 2009, Chuck Rocha founded Solidarity Strategies to build campaigns for labor, environmental and progressive groups. He brought together consultants and campaign professionals who he had come to respect and trust over his two decade-long career with organized labor. Our partners have worked together on projects in Democratic and progressive politics, and bring with them networks that reach from Texas to California, Wisconsin to Missouri, and New York to Washington, D.C. We value our relationships with each other and aim to create the same lasting relationships with all of our clients.

Solidarity Strategies was founded on the premise that we work better together

We have seen the benefits of collective action, we understand the power of unity in enacting change, and we share the belief that our communities are stronger when workers are empowered. In fact, our founder has been a union member since the age of nineteen, and all Solidarity employees are members of the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 400.

We measure success in wins and losses – not in retainers and consulting fees

Solidarity Strategies works with candidates and organizations that fight to better the lives of working families, protect the environment, and stand up for equality and civil rights. When our clients succeed, we all win.
