Time for Biden
You don’t have a choice
Unity: the Only Way to Reclaim the Country
Do you want a country united by equal access to healthcare, education, opportunity, and justice? Where human rights are for all residents, citizens or otherwise? Where truth and reality are valued and fostered?

If you care, you have no other choice. We must work TOGETHER to elect Joe Biden and defeat the vitriolic lying person in the White House.

Joe Biden has been endorsed by the full spectrum of liberal organizations from grassroots to legacy groups. He has been endorsed by Sanders and every Democrat who ran for president in 2020. Now, it’s up to you.

Unite with Dems and support Joe …
because it’s the only way to Beat Trump.

Take the first step in supporting Dems across the country:
Consider these opportunities to donate to the election(s) that you care about.

Biden 2020
Coming together to get a Democrat in the White House
Swing Left Swings Into Action

Last Sunday, Swing Left Greater Boston collaborated with Team Joe on our first formal activity in support of Joe Biden as the Presumptive Nominee of the Democratic Party in the race to the White House. Members of local, state, and national organizations joined to discuss how we’ll support our next President.

This fight is not optional.

In recognition of all the work you have done so far, you are invited to make sure we take back the White House and restore the soul of this nation. It might be a long haul, but it will be worth it.

Let’s start here:
Swing Left Greater Boston’s first phone banking event for Joe
Saturday, May 16 @ 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

PA vote-by-mail application
Dems with vote-by-mail ballots can register to receive them automatically every year
Vote-by-Mail is Key to Flipping PA

First, thanks to our heroic post carding hosts and volunteers. In just over a month you sent 18,000 postcards to Pennsylvanians encouraging them to vote by mail and driving name recognition of the candidates who can flip the Pennsylvania legislature blue.

And it’s working: Vote by mail numbers are way up in Pennsylvania, with two thirds of them Democrats! An added benefit: Once voters receive their VBM ballots, they may request an application to receive VBM ballots for all elections automatically through the end of the year; they’ll also get annual renewal forms so they can continue to receive VBM ballots every year.

The next step: Phone calls to make sure those voters return their ballots before the June 2 primary.

Before you say “I don’t do phone banks”…
These calls are easy: We’re calling likely Democratic voters, reminding them to do what they would probably do anyway (vote) and reminding them of vote-by-mail deadlines. Phone bankers doing these calls say the responses are unusually friendly and rewarding. And we provide training.
