Introducing Swing Blue Alliance

Swing Left Greater Boston has attracted activists across the country — volunteers who recognize the value of our campaigns and focus. To reflect this greater scope, we are launching Swing Blue Alliance, a program of Swing Left Greater Boston.

The mission of Swing Blue Alliance is to serve Democratic committees and campaigns. We work with these organizations to leverage blue energy and provide meaningful support. Swing Left Alliance offers practical tools that empower organizations to run dynamic letter-writing, phone banking, texting, and other initiatives.

We work with campaigns to measure the response to these programs. So you can feel secure that your volunteer time is well-spent. No matter where you live.

Introducing the New England for PA newsletter
Have you seen New England for PA’s first newsletter? Each issue includes links to upcoming events, updates on races and strategies, and just about anything else that you need to know to continue the fight for November.

Why is Pennsylvania important? In 2016, Donald Trump won PA by only 0.7%, marking the first time since 1988 that a Republican Presidential candidate won the state. Since then, grassroots organizations across the U.S. have been fervently organizing to make sure that Pennsylvania not only goes blue in 2020 but also flips the state legislature and puts an end to partisan gerrymandering.

Whether you’re working to register Democrats, pushing for VBM participation, focusing on state-level races, or doing some combination, we hope this newsletter will facilitate your valuable work.

Voter Protection
Swing Left Greater Boston’s voter protection campaign is focusing on key swing states, including Florida, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. We’re working with the Democratic Parties in these states to recruit poll workers and poll monitors (the most immediate need) and to staff voter assistance hotlines.

You don’t need to be an attorney to help with this work, though we certainly need attorneys and people with prior voter protection experience. For example, you can help “cure” rejected ballots to make sure that those votes count.

The outcome of this year’s election hinges on our ability to counter Republican attempts at voter suppression and intimidation. Our voter protection efforts are crucial to guaranteeing that the 2020 elections are fair and that they don’t disproportionately limit the voting rights of citizens of color.

WI Wisconsin could very well be the tipping state this November. Join us and support the most organized and innovative State Democratic Party in the country. Last Sunday, 21 people joined our weekly phone banks. This week, our goal is 30 callers. Can you help?

Join the MA Wisconsin Bridge-Building Phone Bank from 4:00-6:00 pm on Sunday, August 2, and every other Sunday up to the election. We’ll be phoning voters in Wisconsin to ask what issues they care about and which candidates they support.

Not free on Sunday(s)? Check out these other Wisconsin events.
ME Thanks to everyone making calls for our 100 Days Weekend of Action! The new ThruTalk predictive dialer enabled us to make 40,000 calls in just two days, even though we were just getting trained and up to speed. Way to go, Team Maine!!

Making Sara Gideon our next Senator from Maine is too important to stand on the sidelines. Every single call makes a difference. Pick any of our phone banks on the Swing Blue Alliance Maine calendar.

Keep up-to-date with all things Maine.

FL The Broward Democratic Party is excited about the launch of our English and Spanish language vote-by-mail (VBM) campaign. Next stop: outreach to voters who speak Haitian Creole.

The goal is to drive up the percentages of Latino and Haitian Creole people who VBM. Many believe that current low numbers are simply due to the lack of language-accessible contact and information.

Put your powers to work for FL. Apply your Spanish/Haitian Creole/English skills to become a host, distributor, and/or phone banker. Find your opportunity on the Florida page of the Swing Left Greater Boston website.

Learn more about — or get started by — hosting a FL VBM Postcard-to-Go event.
MI Michigan has about 7.7 million registered voters. Let’s make it 8 million.

Join the StateWide Indivisible Michigan (SWIM) and Rust Belt Rising virtual voter registration campaign. We’ll be following up on traceable mailing, working to get unregistered Michiganders who are likely to vote Democrat onto the voting rolls. This is a five-week, two-hours-per-week commitment

Learn about and sign up for the virtual voter registration with new Michiganders training on Saturday, August 8 @ 10:00 am.

We Bid a Fond Farewell

When we wake up on election day in November, we’ll owe Francis Brumley some part of the credit for helping save our democracy. As a summer intern, Frances seems to have been everywhere, and her great work has laid the foundation for success in the months to come.

Frances set up the Pennsylvania Phone Bank team; created incredible phone bank training programs that are being shared across Swing Left; and helped launch everything from the Spanish-language phone bank to the successful Swing Left Greater Boston internship program.

As Frances heads off to law school, we say, “Thank you, Frances, for all you have done and for your energy, enthusiasm, good humor, and remarkable effectiveness.”

We celebrate all the summer interns — as well as the fall crew that just joined us — and recognize all they do to keep us moving forward.
