Movement for a People’s Party (MPP) is a campaign led by former campaign staffers for the 2016 Presidential campaign of self-described “democratic socialist” U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) that is attempting to establish a progressive political party to challenge the Democratic Party from the left.
The group works to build coalitions and establish state groups that will supplant the Democratic Party and eventually lead to the national implementation of their far-left platform that includes sweeping new government welfare programs and increased regulation of the economy.
History and Organization
Nick Brana, the former national political outreach coordinator for the 2016 Presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders campaign, founded the Movement for a People’s Party in 2017.  It was originally called Draft Bernie for a People’s Party.  The campaign is a project of the non-profit People for a Working Democracy, which does not currently have any tax filings publicly available.  Movement for a People’s Party advocates a far-left platform that includes sweeping proposals touching nearly every aspect of life, including government-run single-payer health care, taxpayer-funded public college tuition, restrictions on campaign speech, an infrastructure jobs program, a $15 minimum wage, and stricter financial regulations.  The campaign proposes a four-day workweek, paid family leave, and rent control. The campaign argues that the government can create money to fund these programs. 
Movement for a People’s Party claims that it is building a far-left coalition that is capable of supplanting the Democratic Party on a state by state basis that ultimately culminates in “political revolution” that will “wipe away the old system and bring the people’s platform to life.”  So far the campaign has partnered with various labor, environmental, and anti-war groups in protests and boycotts. 
Nick Brana is the founder and executive director of the Movement for a People’s Party. He was the national political outreach coordinator for the Bernie 2016 campaign. He left the Democratic Party in 2017 and founded the Movement for a People’s Party, stating that “for years he watched Democratic politicians take bribes from the wealthy while they dismissed the needs of working people” and “that neither party shared his desire to help others,” ultimately concluding that “that both parties are corrupt beyond repair.” 
In December of 2018, Brana was asked to join Bernie Sanders’s 2020 Presidential campaign. However, he turned them down, alleging that the Democratic National Committee had “rigged” the process in 2016 to ensure that Sanders lost and would take action in the 2020 process to ensure Sanders would lose again.
