It's 2021, and here at Sister District remain laser-focused on building progressive power in state legistures. With the GOP doubling down on state level voter-repression bills, there's no time to waste! This year we'll support Virginia's fragile Democratic majority, and through our new State Bridges initiative, work to strengthen on-the-ground collaborations with local organizers in VA and in critical 2022 midterm states (AZ, FL, GA, MI, NC, NH, PA, TX, WI, MN, CO, NV). We also continue to support six organizations building Black power through elections--donate to them now!

Our Past Candidates
Now John's a State Senator and Jennifer is running for Governor!
Historially heavy GOP gerrymandering made our victories in Florida and Pennsylvania especially sweet.
Blue Wave, baby: we helped usher in a blue trifecta in Virginia! With GOP obstructionists out of the way, Virginia has expanded Medicaid to 450K residents, protected undocumented immigrants, and passed guns-safety legislation -- a historic achievement given the state's centrality in the infamous "Iron Pipeline."
Between the pandemic, rampant voter suppression, and Former Guy, this was a tough year for first-time progressive candidates. We lost...this time. But we sowed the seeds for future progressives, and supported Black Male Voter Project , BlackPAC, Black VotersMatter, Higher Heights, TheCollective, and Voting While Black -- six organizations amplifying Black electoral power.
We've also taken part in Sister District Action Network's voter-engagement initiatives; forged partnerships with Reclaim Our Vote, MassVOTE, and Ohio Progressive Action Leaders' Mission Vote to expand voter registration; and maintained ongoing relationships with Indivisible and other progressive groups in New England.
