Special Guests: CA Sen. Jerry Hill, CA Assemblymembers Kevin Mullin & Marc Berman will update us on the laws passed during the 2018-2019 CA Legislative session that will help California today, and be a guiding light for the rest of the country. Then they will share their perspective on why it is so critical to elect Cheryl Turpin to the Virginia State Senate this November. For those of you who joined us last year for this event, you know this will be a passionate, uplifting evening. You are in for a real treat!
Turn your outrage into action. Together, we can prevent 10 more years of gerrymandering. We have only 2 months before elections which will decide if Democrats are fairly represented for the next decade in two critical Southern states.Check out our calendar for dates and join us!
WELCOME TO SISTER DISTRICT CA PENINSULA
Sister District CA Peninsula is the Sister District chapter for members living in the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula region (though we welcome everyone interested in joining us). We are a very active group, with events every month, so we welcome you to become active with us!
We created Sister District as a grassroots organization in response to the 2016 elections and their alarming consequences. Democrats are the majority of Americans but Republicans - a minority party - control two of the three branches of our federal government and 30 of our 50 state legislatures. Our mission is to help Democrats regain control of state legislatures. By doing so, we can reverse gerrymandering and ensure Democrats are fairly represented so that progressive policies can be implemented.
Chapters work as teams directly for their assigned candidates, doing the fundraising and voter outreach the candidate needs and specifies. We become part of the candidate's volunteer team. This close connection is felt on both sides: as volunteers we feel a personal loyalty to and investment in our candidate, and our candidates can (and do) communicate their gratitude for our contribution. In fact both candidates Sister District CA Peninsula supported in 2017 in Virginia have traveled to California after being elected, to personally tell members of Sister District CA Peninsula how important our contribution was to their success.
