2019 Candidates are Here!

Meet Our Candidates

How It Works

1. First, sign up. Then, we connect you with a team of volunteers who live near you, led by a group of volunteer District Captains.

2. We handpick a small number of strategic state legislative races—probably in a different state—and assign your team to 2-3 of those races.

3. You work with your local team to fundraise, phonebank, postcard, textbank and, if you can, travel to knock on doors and get out the vote.

What You'll Do

Sister District teams act as an expansion of campaign's field and fundraising programs. That means you'll be writing postcards to voters, canvassing, phonebanking, textbanking, and raising money on behalf of amazing Democratic candidates. But more importantly, we believe long-term activism isn't possible without building an activism community, full of real connections and real relationships. At Sister District, you'll be part of a creative, innovative, passionate community of fellow activists—and, just maybe, lifelong friends.

We focus on state legislatures because:

  1. States are critical to securing fairly drawn districts and fighting back against gerrymandering and voter suppression.
  2. States are incubators of strong progressive policies and leaders.
  3. State level campaigns are often small and under-nourished—our volunteers' dollars and hard work can have an outsized impact.

About Sister District

The Sister District Project works to turn states blue by winning state legislative elections. We are open to volunteers and candidates of all genders.

We have a strategic, targeted focus on critical down-ballot, state races that—if we win—will make it easier to win national elections. We support a portfolio of races, with the strategic goals of (1) flipping Republican-held state chambers (2) holding fragile Democratic majorities in state chambers, and (3) making blue inroads in badly gerrymandered states.
