She has also consistently received the lowest average contribution of any candidate in the race, showing the strength of grassroots support from people who believe in the Wu campaign’s movement.
Wu has raised $944,000 since her launch, the most of any candidate in the race, fueled in large part through grassroots donors from every neighborhood in Boston. The Wu campaign has 458 monthly recurring contributors, which continues to provide the resources for an in-depth organizing program.
“I’m so grateful to every single person who has supported our campaign by making phone calls, chipping in a dollar, and sharing their vision. We’re building community across every neighborhood fueled by an outpouring of grassroots support and energy. To meet this moment, we need bold, urgent leadership to build a city for everyone and tackle our longstanding challenges head-on,” said Michelle Wu.
