Sister District Contra Costa County

Contra Costa County, CA

About our team

We are working to build a community of folks in Contra Costa County dedicated to building progressive power across our country. Our volunteers are helping fundraise, phone bank and write postcards for our Sister District campaigns. We're having an impact, building meaningful relationships and having fun while we're doing it!

We’ve wrapped up a big year! In 2020, we supported Cindy Polo's reelection campaign in Florida and challengers Aleta Borrud and Bonnie Westlin in Minnesota. Sister District volunteers and donors raised $1.85M in small dollar donations for our 2020 candidates and reached out to over 1 million voters. (You can check out Sister District’s analysis of what happened in this year’s historic election.) 

In 2021, we’ll be supporting special and general election candidates and tackling other opportunities to build power in the states. To sign up to volunteer, click the "volunteer" button to the right. Check your email to stay in the loop! While we prepare to begin organizing for 2021, check the Sister District Featured Events page for upcoming events in the national Sister District community, and follow us on social media for the latest news. You can also donate to Sister District by clicking the "donate" button to the right.

We would love for you to join us!

We're actively looking for volunteers to join our core organizing team and help with organizing virtual phonebank parties and small-dollar fundraisers and help us build our beloved community in Contra Costa County. Contact our team if you have any questions. 

Upcoming Events

Stay tuned!

In 2020:

We focused on organizing small dollar fundraisers, phone banking and otherwise supporting Cindy Polo, Bonnie Westlin, and Aleta Borrud's campaigns. In light of COVID-19, we organized monthly virtual gatherings to fundraise and build community. 

On Sunday, July 19th, we held a meet and greet to fundraise for Aleta Borrud's campaign. And did the same with Cindy Polo later in the summer. We ran phonebanks and collaborated with our friends at Sister District East Bay (who were helping the same candidates) to run phonebanks on alternate Sundays.

2019 must be about more than impeachment. Thanks to you, it is.

Moments ago, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives will begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump. As new allegations surface about Trump’s illegal dealings with the former Soviet Union, many of us continue to ask how low is too low (still no end in sight). This is likely to galvanize conservatives this fall and heading into 2020, so while the House does its part, let's be sure to do ours.
