BIJ1 is a new leftist political party in The Netherlands. Unequivocally anti-racist, unapologetically anti-capitalist, unreservedly inclusive: BIJ1 is the real deal.
BIJ1 was founded in 2016 by Sylvana Simons. It stands for a society with equal rights and equal opportunities for everyone. After gaining a council seat in the city of Amsterdam, BIJ1 is preparing its admission to Dutch Parliament after the national Dutch elections in March of 2021.
In December 2019, BIJ1 first used Wings to launch a fundraiser in preparation of their election campaign in the run-up to the elections of March 2021. Soon thereafter, they migrated their national website as well as a slew of local chapter websites to Wings. After raising over € 100,000 using Wings's fundraisers, they were finally able to transfer to a bespoke campaign website on BIJ1.org, while still using Wings for their local websites.
As explained further in our article "Who is Wings for?", this is an excellent demonstration of Wings's strengths and limitations.
