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.
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.
