Sister District Minnesota

Entire state, primarily Twin Cities metro and surrounding communities

About our team

We formed our team early in Sister District's second election cycle in 2018. Although Minnesota itself had a busy ballot that year, we felt it important to be part of a national network of volunteer teams striving to build progressive power in state legislatures across the country. After two cycles of helping candidates get elected in Michigan then Virginia -- and seeing real policy change there as a result -- we're excited to be supporting candidates to help flip the Minnesota state Senate blue in 2020. We emphasize creating a sense of belonging and impactfulness when connecting volunteers to the electoral work we do for wonderful candidates in strategically selected districts.

Upcoming Events

Recurring Phonebanks (Sun 2p, Wed 630p & Sat 10a), starting Aug 23 to election day:

Calling voters is our #1 remote tactic to increase voter turnout. By identifying voters, improving the campaigns' data, and recruiting local volunteers, we help our awesome MN state senate candidates win their strategically-valuable elections to flip the chamber blue.
