Electing great candidates is a critical step in protecting our communities, but it is not the only way we can fight back. We have leveraged our electoral experience and network of experts to develop a comprehensive and forward-thinking plan of action focused on building progressive power in state legislatures across the country.
Since 2016, we have expanded our programs to include not only electoral work, but also training newly elected legislators and former candidates, providing a full suite of campaign services to our endorsed candidates, conducting academic-quality civic research, supporting community-based organizations, and working directly with on-campus student organizers.
Every dollar you contribute to the Five-Year Fund supports the next phase of our ambitious and comprehensive strategy to build progressive power in state legislatures, including:
As a first-time millennial candidate who had to work a full-time job while running in a year unlike any other, I am honored for the opportunity to represent the community that raised me. There is no way I would be in this position without Sister District in my corner every step of the way! Because of Sister District, I had the chance to communicate my personal commitment to my community and had countless volunteers across the nation assisting me in doing so. Whether it be making phone calls, writing postcards, hosting virtual fundraisers, or making the trek to the 51st District to canvass, Sister District was with me every step of the way.
-Briana Sewell, Delegate-elect from District 51
Sister District was founded in 2016 to build progressive power at the state level across the country. Since then, we have grown from a small group of activists working to elect Democrats to state legislatures; to a nationwide powerhouse and the only national grassroots organization dedicated exclusively to state power.
Since 2016 we’ve made incredible gains at the state level, building momentum for progressive policy and helping to elect Democratic candidates that uphold a shared vision for our future.
As Sister District founders Dr. Gaby Goldstein and Lala Wu told Jonathan Van Ness on his podcast Getting Curious (ep. 220), there is no such thing as an off-year for state elections. The work of building progressive power in state legislatures never stops, and neither do we!
We are working year-round to combat the influence of dark money flooding right-wing politics. With Sister District, you can volunteer your time, or contribute to support the programs in our Five-Year Fund. Together, we’ll continue to fight for our values and build progressive power in state legislatures!
