Fruitful Face-to-Face Online Fundraising
When Force Multiplier organizers had to suspend in-person fundraising, they put together two Zoom* events featuring Lucy McBath, who represents Georgia’s 6th congressional district. They were blown away by the success of their first all-virtual fundraising event. More than 130 people participated, and contributions have exceeded the $30,000 mark.

The Wisconsin Democratic Party’s grassroots Neighbor to Neighbor campaign has taken note and is putting together its own virtual fundraiser this Sunday, March 29. Joining the Zoom conference will be Lewis Friedland, activist leader and expert on Wisconsin politics. He has watched anti-union, anti-democratic dark money enact racist policies and eliminate programs and services for families.

In 2018, Wisconsin Democrats turned the state, voting in a full slate of Democrats. Now, the Republican Party believes that whoever wins Wisconsin will win the election. Swing Left wants to prove them right.

Disappointment in PA
Lose a seat but win the state in 2020
Setback Energizes Meaningful Action
We had tough news from Pennsylvania last week. Despite strong efforts from Swing Left Greater Boston and seven other states, we lost all three special legislative elections on March 17.

Democrat Harold Hayes in HD-18 lost by only 883 votes out of 8,169 votes cast. Just as in 2016, when we lost Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes to Donald Trump by 44,292 votes out of nearly six million cast, we confirmed that every vote and every voter contact counts.

That’s why we’re encouraging Pennsylvania voters to register and to sign up to Vote by Mail, more vital than ever in the age of coronavirus.
