About Sister District Project
Sister District builds enduring progressive power in state legislatures by filling critical gaps at every point in the political lifecycle. We win elections by “sistering” teams of volunteers across the country to support candidates with field and fundraising capacity, and providing strategic professional support to campaigns. We support organizers through hands-on training and coaching, and also direct grassroots fundraising support to power-building organizations on the ground in the states where we work. We develop legislators to help our alumni hit the ground running in office, and by supporting candidates who lost but who should run again. We educate and empower through cutting-edge voter and volunteer engagement research and broader education about the importance of states.
Since launching in the wake of the 2016 elections, we have grown to over 50,000 members nationwide, raised $3.6 million for candidates, and reached out to 3.1 million voters through phones, doors, postcards, and texts. While we have a Democratic trifecta at the federal level, our progressive values—in terms of voting rights, reproductive health, climate change, and more—are under attack and vulnerable in the states. Our 2021-2022 strategy is laser-focused on building power in the states that matter most.
Sister District’s mission to build progressive power in state legislatures is inextricably linked to our vision for racial equity and justice in America. We value a multicultural, diverse working environment. Applicants of diverse backgrounds are welcomed and encouraged to apply.
