Good People for the Resistance is an interview with people who give me hope. Between now and the election, I will shine a spotlight on people who are working day and night to restore and protect our Democracy. It’s the Best News I can find. I hope you are inspired by them as much as I am.
Today, meet Susan Labandibar, regional organizing coordinator for Swing Left Greater Boston, the largest grassroots all-volunteer organization in New England, with upwards of 5,000 volunteers based in Massachusetts and in Blue states across the country. Swing Left connects volunteers in Blue states with campaigns in Super States – where the most important battles are being waged for the White House, Senate, and to control the GOP’s attempts at gerrymandering. Now only a few weeks away from the election, volunteers are in overdrive, making sure Democrats win up and down the ballot. What exactly are they doing and why is Labandibar optimistic?
