Post-Election Personal Care



First, from the entire Arena team,  thank you for all of your hard work to help build a better future. 

Anyone who’s gone through that transition will tell you that it can be a difficult time; there are emotions around the election results and around forming a new kind of relationship with your campaign coworkers. There are concerns about what you’ll do next, where your next paycheck is coming from, and what to do for health insurance. And that’s all totally normal without the added stress of free and fair elections on the line.

This guide is intended to help with three specific parts of the post-election transition for campaign staff:

  • Health insurance
  • Unemployment
  • Mental health care

Most importantly, remember that if you are struggling, reach out to a friend, a family member, or someone here at Arena. We will be here for you as you navigate this transition.

Republicans have spent decades cultivating talent and investing for the long run, and right now we’re paying the price. Republicans control 30 state legislatures, 28 governors mansions, and are just a few seats away from regaining control of Congress. Together with an activist Supreme Court, they’re enacting policies that turn back progress on everything from abortion to voting rights to climate change. 

Arena is building a new generation of political leaders who will lead the fight to save our democracy and build progressive power for the long run. It’s going to take all of us to make change. Join us in this work.
