Today’s Action: Attend a Swing Left Kickoff Party this weekend!

Think we’re sitting back, relaxing, and riding on the good vibes of taking back the House? Think again! We’ve already got our sights on the other prizes: the White House, Senate, and key state races in the 2020 elections.

The work to win those seats start now…and the good folks of Swing Left are helping to focus efforts with nationwide kickoff parties starting this weekend (and most of them won’t interfere with your SuperBowl plans).

Enter your zip code to find a Swing Left Kickoff Party this month, beginning this weekend, Feb 2-3! Set your intention NOW for bumping Trump out of the White House and the GOP out of the Senate Majority.

The action plans for the next two years are going to vary depending on the needs and makeup of your area and your personal interests and abilities. Whether it’s focusing on flipping a Senate seat, redistricting your state to battle GOP gerrymandering, or lending your support to a neighboring district (because yours is already progressive), your local Swing Left Kickoff Party will lay it all out for you.

You can bet that Republicans have already begun their grassroots organizing for Trump’s re-election. But Trump’s approval rating is low and we’ve got massive momentum on our side. We need to launch into the next two years of organizing to take back the presidency…and Swing Left is making it easy and fun to start now.

Find the Swing Left Kickoff Party nearest you by entering your zip code – plan to attend and bring a friend! Parties begin this weekend, Feb 2-3, and extend throughout the month.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to tell Trump’s Justice Department to start prosecuting hate crimes NOW, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
