New York Volunteers

Sister District New York City

Manhattan's East Side and Queens

About our team

Sister District NYC is part of a nationwide grassroots organization working to paint the electoral map blue. SDNYC covers all Manhattan and Queens voting districts—and works closely with Brooklyn and the Bronx—to raise awareness and funds for Democratic candidates in crucial swing-state districts (our “sister” districts).

We have an important mission—and our results show it works—but we also have fun, from Tiki-themed phone banking to trivia nights. To us, it takes both passion and positivity to create meaningful change. (And New Yorkers have plenty of both.)

So where do you come in?

Wherever you’re most comfortable. Whether you’re looking for a leadership role, writing postcards or making phone calls, or simply want to attend events, donate, and spread the word, just a little of your time can make a big difference.

We’ve wrapped up a big year! 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!
