Sister District Greater Chicago volunteers come from across Chicagoland and support state legislative candidates with fundraising, phonebanking, postcarding, textbanking, and canvassing.
In 2020, Sister District volunteers and donors raised $1.85M in small dollar donations for our 2020 candidates and reached out to over 1 million voters.
In 2021, we are supporting special and general election candidates, with a focus on Virginia, and tackling other opportunities to build power in the states. Please join us! Check your email to stay in the loop, check our Events Page page for upcoming events, and follow us on social media for the latest news.
Looking forward to working with you!

Buildling on the successes in Arizona and Georgia in 2020, we know that long-term community-based organizing, often led by people of color, is bedrock for our ability to build progressive power in state legislatures.
Join us as we raise money for one of our new partner organizations doing year-round power-building work: Citizen Action of Wisconsin. We'll hear from Dr. Robert Kraig, Executive Director, and JoAnna Bautch, Movement Politics Director.

Hear directly from one of our 2021 Virginia candidates, Delegate Chris Hurst. Long-time volunteers will remember Chris as our very first Sister District candidate. We helped him flip his seat from red to blue in 2017, and we're going to help him keep it in 2021.
