We Match Blue with Red for a Bluer Tomorrow.
These are dangerous times that demand resistance. But if you live in a solidly blue (or red) place, you might feel frustrated trying to figure out what you can do to fight back. The Sister District Project can help you find a place to channel your blue energy where it will actually make a difference.
When you join the Sister District Project, you will be connected with your local home district team. After the primary elections in June, your team will be matched with a strategic, winnable race that needs your support. In 2017, your Sister Race will be a down-ballot race that is critical to helping Democrats defend or take back control of the states and bring fairness back to redistricting. As 2018 approaches, you will be matched with a swing congressional district, or other strategically important race, so that we can take back the House of Representatives and the State Legislatures.
Anyone can join. When you sign up to volunteer, we will (1) connect you with your local Sister District team, (2) assign your team to a race that is both winnable and strategic to support, and (3) give you specific action items to carry out that have been vetted with the campaign. Your economic and volunteer resources will help provide a much-needed boost to a progressive candidate in a race that matters. With your team, you will also be able to engage with other local activist groups, identify local issues that require action, and report back to Sister District with any elections that you think warrant support. This project is built from the ground up, and you are the foundation.

*We have not paired home district teams with their Sister Races yet. Election season generally runs from June to November, and we will not assign Sister Races until there is a candidate with whom we can coordinate, which will generally be after the primaries in June.
Nevertheless, we encourage you to sign up now! Already, local teams in all 50 states are meeting up to discuss their agendas and gather more volunteers. Signing up now allows you to connect with other SDP volunteers in your area and get trained and organized while you await your Sister Race assignment. Your local group may also want to engage in complementary activism activities, such as those suggested by Indivisible, or get involved in supporting or resisting local races in your area.
