Sister District CA Peninsula is located on the San Francisco Peninsula, from Daly City to Menlo Park, and over to the San Mateo County Coast. Learn all about us in our website, SisterDistrictCAPeninsula.org.
We work hard, but we really like to have fun doing so! For example, in 2019 our events included an evening with a stand up comedian, a margarita party, a BBQ with a live band, an elegant silent auction/cocktail party, and several fascinating speakers (including for our famous Nerd Night). With this approach, we have been able to attract volunteers and donors and have become one of the most active and productive chapters in Sister District.
In January we will commence fundraising - our 2020 Kick Off fundraiser is on 1/26/20 (proceeds will go to Sister District Project) - and writing postcards. We will be part of two Sister District Action Network (SDAN) postcard experiments. The postcards will encourage voters in Texas, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Minnesota who strongly support Democrats but who don't usually vote in primary elections, to do so in 2020.
Summary of our work in 2019
In 2019 we supported three excellent candidates:
2020 is our last chance to elect Democrats to state legislatures which will draw electoral maps controlling state and Congressional elections until 2031. We of CA Peninsula want 2020 to be our biggest year yet. We are now planning our calendar of events (will include a professionally presented Quiz Night and an evening with a political comic/songwriter!) To check out all of our upcoming events, go to our Sister District CA Peninsula Calendar, in our website.
A great way to learn about us is to come to one of our Sister District CA Peninsula monthly meetings, which are held every second Thursday of the month (except December) at 7:00-8:30pm at the Highlands Recreation Center, 1851 Lexington Ave, San Mateo.
