CALL TO ACTION

… and Swing Left Greater Boston is up and running
Learn about Swing Left’s 2020 Strategy
After the 2016 elections, Swing Left founder Ethan Todras-Whitehill took this advice to heart. Instead of getting involved in protests or the primaries, he just stuck to one strategy.  He founded Swing Left, a political organization with a single goal for the next two years: Take back the U.S. House of Representatives. And that’s what we did.

Now we’re going to take back ALL the Houses.

Hear the latest on Swing Left’s state-by-state strategy from Ethan and Swing Left Field Director Marisa Kano on January 12 at 8:00 pm. (Yes, the date has changed; don’t worry if you’ve already RSVPed – you don’t need to re-register.)

If you haven’t yet registered, sign up today.
You’re also welcome to share this meeting with other Swing Left volunteers, allies, partners, and potential supporters!



Host a Swing Left 2020 Strategy Party
Start 2020 off right! Host a Swing Left strategy party on January 18, 19, or 20. It’s a perfect opportunity to get your network charged up for the New Year! Can’t host a party that weekend? No worries, feel free to schedule it later in the week. It’s easy with Swing Left Greater Boston’s soup-to-nuts strategy party kit. Plus, we’ll promote your event via the Take Action tool.

Check out the house-party-in-a-box.

Learn about Registering Voters in FL
This training call is for anyone interested in registering Democrats in Florida — a state crucial to holding the House and toppling Trump in 2020. We’ll give you an overview of the state, where our time will best be spent, and kinds of hot spots we’ve identified. We’ll also go over the state-specific voter registration form.

Join us on this call on Tuesday, January 21 @ 7:00 pm.


Solidify Your Existing Plans to Register Voters in FL
This call is for anyone planning to travel to Florida to register Democrats with Field Team 6 and Swing Left Greater Boston. For those who don’t live in the state, we’ll give you the deets on getting there: when, where to stay, and who to contact when you arrive. We’ll go over the new state-specific voter registration team leaders kit, so you’ll be an expert on registering voters in Florida.

Before you begin packing, sign up for the call.
It’s on Monday, January 6@ 7:00 pm EST.

Join the call on Sunday, January 5 @ 8:00 pm.
