About the Sister District Project

We help volunteers and volunteer teams around the nation provide grassroots support to progressive state legislative 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. Read more about Our Strategy.

Our impact, at a glance:

  • In 2019, Sister District volunteers helped our endorsed candidates flip both state houses in Virginia, creating a blue trifecta for passing progressive legislation and ensuring that Democrats will draw the next decade of electoral maps in the state during 2021 redistricting.
  • In 2018 we helped flip the Colorado Senate, which created a blue trifecta in that state. CO legislators went on to have a historic 2019 session, passing bills banning conversion therapy, ensuring equal pay for equal work, providing universal state-funded all-day kindergarten and much more.
  • In 2017, Sister District supported Shelly Simonds in her bid for VA House of Delegates. She tied, ultimately losing when her opponent’s name was drawn from a ceramic bowl. In 2019, Shelly was our first candidate to declare victory. Sister District volunteers made well over half of Shelly’s phone calls, sent 100% of her texts, and raised $83,000, which was 6% of her total fundraising.
  • Josh Cole ran in 2017 and lost by 82 votes. He was endorsed by Sister District in 2019 and our volunteers raised $82,500, or 7% of his total fundraising, and made over half of his phone calls. On election night 2019, Josh became the first Black person, and the youngest ever person, elected to his House of Delegates seat
