We were thrilled to support three excellent candidates for the state house in North Carolina in 2020, Brian Farkas, Ricky Hurtado, and Frances Jackson! All three were extremely close races; Brian won his race by just over 800 votes and Ricky flipped his Republican district blue by fewer than 500 votes. Frances lost by some 700 votes.
Sister District Eugene volunteers work with campaigns to help with fundraising, canvassing, writing postcards, textbanking, and phonebanking. In 2019 we supported three candidates running for state office in Virginia and, in so doing, helped flip that state blue.
We're always looking for volunteers to help with any of these campaign activities, including small-dollar fundraisers. Please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help out! To sign up to help, click the "VOLUNTEER" button; your Lane County OR zip code will drop you into our SDP EUG emailing list.
In 2021, we’ll be supporting special and general election candidates and tackling other opportunities to build power in the states. Please join us! Check your email to stay in the loop, check our Featured Events page for upcoming events in the national Sister District community, and follow us on social media for the latest news.
No public events currently scheduled due to COVID-19 precautions; instead we are working together/at home on postcarding and other campaign activities. As soon as possible we will resume our popular Sunday night trivia nights and in-person postcarding.
