Today’s Action: Elect Democrats at the state level and stop gerrymandering!

Don’t think another state’s politics can affect you? Think again. Aggressive and partisan GOP gerrymandering at the state level in 2011 was so extreme that in 2012, Republicans were able to retake the House with a 49-seat majority even though Democrats received 1.4 million more votes nationwide.

Creating a government that reflects our values — the values of the American people — depends on breaking GOP strongholds in districts they’ve unfairly seized. If you already live in a blue state and/or district that’s already fighting for your causes, you can focus your efforts on helping those who aren’t as lucky…and thereby help yourself.

The good people of Sister District are organizing those efforts and need volunteers across the nation to actually make it happen.

Sign up for Sister District’s volunteer list today — a local district captain will contact you once there are events near you to join, or help you organize your own team!

Sister District volunteer opportunities include phone-banking, canvassing, text-banking, postcarding, events and more — all for great Democratic candidates in key state races that Sister District has identified as seats we need to win back to counter the most egregious damage the GOP has had on our nation.

And though canvassing and phone-banking can be hard work, it is good work — the two most effective ways to reach voters, if you’re comparing time spent to impact you’ve made.

President Obama recently put it best, when he said, “We shouldn’t expect (politics) to be entertaining all the time… Sometimes you are just in a church basement making phone calls and eating cold pizza.”

Sign up for local volunteer opportunities (or lead your own!) from Sister District — help win key state legislative seats to stomp out GOP gerrymandering, vote down discriminatory voter I.D. laws, and much more.

Cold pizza is a small price to pay for a government that works for all of us again.
