Sister District volunteers help get Democrats elected to state legislatures. Every ten years, the results of the National Census trigger redistricting in the states. This means that after the 2020 Census, every state will redraw its electoral district maps—an opportunity that will not arise again until 2031. State legislatures control the redistricting process in 37 states, so the elected officials we send to our state legislatures in 2020 will have consequences for years to come.
We’ve been crunching the numbers, and just completed a comprehensive report on our volunteer field and fundraising programs, campaign successes, and organizational growth. In addition, our Political Team put together a deep-dive analysis of 2019 you can read our blog. Sister District is committed to being a continuously learning organization. We’re proud to share the nuts and bolts of our achievements with you. so we can go bigger and better together in 2020!
We recently released our 2019 Impact Report. The report includes details about our fundraising and field achievements, program growth, campaign success and satisfaction, and volunteer/team success and growth. Read on for some of the takeaways from the report.

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.

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.
