Since launching in the wake of the 2016 elections, the Sister District Project has grown to over 25,000 volunteers across the country. Our volunteers raised more than $350,000 in small-dollar cash donations directly for our candidates in 2017, plus another $350,000 in partnership with allied organizations. We made over 81,000 phone calls, wrote 40,000 postcards, knocked on 30,000 doors, and sent 185,000 text messages.
We’re developing partnerships on the national and local levels with Indivisible, Swing Left, Flippable, One Vote at a Time, MarchOn, Together We Will, Solidarity Sundays, EMILY’s List, and Emerge, along with countless other progressive organizations and local groups.
We’re also proud to be an organization founded and led by women, including women of color. Four out of five of us quit our jobs to be with Sister District full time.
The Sister District Project activates the power, passion, and creativity of volunteers to win elections and turn states blue.
By 2020, the Sister District Project will lead the movement to turn state legislatures blue and ensure fair redistricting by empowering an enduring community of volunteers who are formidable in their ability to help Democrats win elections.
