We Flipped Virginia Blue!

You Did It

Democrats flipped both the House of Delegates and the state Senate in Virginia. Our candidates ran tough races where every single vote mattered, and because of our volunteers’ hard work, they will proudly go to Richmond in January as the majority party. And, all of our 2017 alumni running for re-election won!

Tonight was historic, and we’re ready to keep the momentum going straight into 2020. To do that, we’ll need to see a large increase in contributions to Sister District to grow our organization. Help us get a head start!

Spotlight: Tammy Savoie

Election Night in Virginia and Mississippi is in the books! Our work isn’t done yet, with one more run-off election November 16th. Sister District is proud to support our first Louisiana candidate ever: Dr. Tammy Savoie, running for Louisiana State House of Representatives District 94.

Tammy retired from the Air Force in 2016 and returned home to New Orleans where she was dismayed to find that Louisiana was consistently ranked #50 out of 50 states in nearly all quality of life indices. She chose to run for office because she could not very well look at the state of my state and not take action. Her 38+ years in the military had trained her to keep going when things get tough. Tammy is committed to making the changes the state needs.

In an exclusive interview, we asked Tammy to explain a little bit about her personal journey, why she decided to run for office, and the policy she intends to work on if elected.

Impeachment is Happening

But we have work to do right now.

We all wish Donald Trump wasn’t president. But with the Senate still in the hands of Republicans, and impeachment historically unpopular, there’s no guarantee the proceedings will lead to him being removed from office. With chaos and instability at the federal level, we must re-commit to building lasting Democratic power the only surefire way: by electing Democrats up and down the ballot.

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.

Elizabeth Warren agrees!
States legislatures are important 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.
