2020 Ready House Parties
Ready to (House) Party?
If you’re ready to defeat the GOP, attend a Swing Left 2020 Ready! House Party this weekend. At a House Party, you’ll meet like-minded people who want to make a difference, discuss the Super State Strategy, and plan how you’ll take action in 2020.


Pick any from the calendar above.

NEWS ALERT!
2020 Starts Now
On January 12, a nationwide Swing Left webinar described what’s next.
Recap from Swing Left Strategy Call
On Sunday evening, thousands of you dialed into Sunday’s National Strategy Call, where we laid out Swing Left’s grand plan to put Democrats in charge of the White House, Senate, and critical state houses this year. If you missed it, here’s a quick recap.

Between now and the Democratic convention, Swing Left is focusing on team-building. Volunteers together, we’re building strong alliances that will be able to hit the ground running over the summer.

We’re writing letters, registering voters, canvassing, hosting house parties, and running grassroots fundraisers. At every step, we’re going to find ways to create synergy among volunteers from a host of activist organizations.

In July, we’ll put this action into high gear. Then starting in September, we’ll begin a huge push to get out the vote — some battleground states have early voting. Our full-court press to reclaim our government will make the #BlueWave2018 look like a ripple.


Here are five quick steps you can take now:

  • Congratulate yourself! You are already subscribed to New England’s best resource for unseating Trump and taking back our democracy. Read the newsletter every week from now until the election.

  • Join a local group. Check out this list of local groups that took action with Swing Left in 2019; contact slabandibar@swingleft.org for an introduction to any of these groups.

  • Don’t wait. Start to fund the Democratic Presidential Nominee now. Make small dollar donations now, and ask your friends to donate, too. Donate to Swing Left Greater Boston’s Unify or Die Fund. We’ll send 100% of the money to the eventual Democratic nominee for President exactly when they’ll need it most — right after the convention in July 2020, at the start of the general election.
