New Jersey

About our team

We each have our own political views.  In the midst of the daily storm of events it is difficult to decide how to mobilize.  An informed electorate with easy access to the ballot is an essential part of the process.

What to do?  Where to start?

Sister District's goal is to win power in strategic state legislatures across the nation so that we can draw fair districts in 2021 and catalyze real progressive change for the next decade.

We’ve wrapped up a big year! In 2020, Sister district New Jersey was paired with our neighbor Pennsylvania. In the 2018 Pennsylvania House races Democrats won 54.1% of the vote yet received only 45.8% of the seats. We had the privilege of supporting Deb Ciamacca and Jonathan Kassa for Pennsylvania state representatives. All of our work helped drive votes for Biden and helped these great candidates inspire and turnout new Democratic voters, something that will help the next candidates to run in these districts. More broadly, Sister District volunteers and donors raised $1.85M in small dollar donations for our 2020 candidates and reached out to over 1 million voters. (You can check out Sister District’s analysis of what happened in this year’s historic election.) 

In 2021, we’ll be supporting special and general election candidates and tackling other opportunities to build power in the states. Please join us!
