The cycle of poverty is set up. The economic systems across our country are set up to make the rich richer and the poor poorer.
Upset the Setup PAC is a people-powered organization that ultimately seeks to upset this flawed system by increasing opportunity and eliminating systems of poverty.

We’ve seen the tremendous progress that is possible when we elect people to power who are committed to this fight.
By tackling income disparities and investing directly in underserved communities, we can begin to eliminate these archaic systems of poverty.
We can enact bold policies that will build up communities for generations to come, but we have to elect the leaders who are willing to fight for it. Upset the Setup PAC is working to do just that.
