Unite And Conquer



Old-school divide-and-conquer tactics—demonizing opponents, frightening voters, refusing to compromise—may make us feel good about the purity of our ideals, but it’s no way to get anything done. Worse, this approach betrays some of the most cherished ideals of the progressive movement: inclusion, reason, justice, and hope. Illuminated by examples from her own work and a host of campaigns across the country, Kyrsten Sinema shows how to forge connections—both personal and political—with seemingly unlikely allies and define our values, interests, and objectives in ways that broaden our range of potential partners and expand our tactical options. With irreverent humor, enthralling campaign stories, and solid, practical advice, Sinema enables us to move past “politics as war” and build support for progressive causes on the foundation of our common humanity.

Praise for Unite And Conquer

“Kyrsten Sinema’s down-to-earth, funny, and insightful wit is a great match for her practical lessons. Unite and Conquer goes to the very heart of what progressive politics needs—a good dose of learning how to work with others, sprinkled with humor and grace, from a truly remarkable woman.” —Celinda Lake, President, Lake Research Partners “This book is a must-have for anyone interested in winning those campaigns that are supposed to be unwinnable.” —Joe Solmonese, President, Human Rights Campaign “As a member of the minority party in the Arizona legislature, Kyrsten Sinema has had to forge cross-ideological coalitions to further her objectives, and she’s become good at it. Unite and Conquer will equip policy advocates on both sides of the spectrum to break through partisan gridlock and effectuate meaningful change.” —Clint Bolick, Director, Scharf-Norton Center for Constitutional Litigation, Goldwater Institute
