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.
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.
Today, we are thrilled to announce our first wave of 2019 endorsements. Supporting these 10 incredible candidates helps us achieve two of our strategic goals: flipping chambers blue, and making inroads into badly gerrymandered states.
We all know what the stakes are, and we should make sure we understand how we got to this point. But our focus must be on the future.
Leading up to the 2016 election and in those chaotic months afterward, I honed my skills as a prolific click-tavist. I’m not too humble to admit that I achieved elite-level status.
Our 40,000+ volunteers at Sister District have been working hard over the last two years. Check out our 2018 Impact Report for details about our fundraising and field efforts, how our volunteer base has grown, and feedback from campaigns on our work.
Overall, our teams have raised over $1m and reached out to over 1 million voters!
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.
