About Sister District

Our Programs Work To Win Elections, Develop Legislators, Support Organizers, and Educate and Empower Communities.

Since 2016, we have endorsed candidates in 177 races across 18 states, 115 of whom won and have gone on to fight for progressive issues in their state legislatures. We’ve raised $5.9 million in small-dollar donations directly for our candidates, and reached out to more than 4.4 million voters through phones, texts, postcards, and door knocks.
For a more detailed look at our work last year, check out our Impact Report.

We’re also proud to be an organization founded and led by women, including women of color. Four out of five of us quit our jobs to be with Sister District full time.

Electoral Program

Our flagship electoral program works to get Democrats elected to strategic state legislative seats by supporting campaigns with grassroots action. We “sister” volunteers from deep blue districts with carefully targeted races in swing districts, where flipping control of the state legislature will advance progressive policy. Our volunteers canvass, phonebank, write postcards, textbank, and fundraise for candidates

We have a strategic, targeted focus on

(1) flipping Republican-held state chambers

(2) holding fragile Democratic majorities in state chambers, and

(3) making blue inroads in badly gerrymandered states.
