About 2020 Kickoff House Parties

Between 2/2-2/16, Swing Left volunteers across the country will come together to work on the next election. Swing Left is asking volunteers like you to host a house party for their community and network.

We had a big impact in 2018 because we started organizing early, and spent nearly two years doing the work. Our goals are a little different this time around—we can work simultaneously on winning the White House, the Senate, the House, and the state races needed to end Republican gerrymandering.

Sign up to host your 2020 kick off house party with Swing Left Boston! We will help create your Action Network event, and provide publicity and support. All you need is a computer, laptop, smart TV with an internet connection.

Some of the strategies we use will be different in 2019-2020. For example, we know that in a presidential election year, voters are more likely to turnout on Election Day—so the best way to make an impact is to increase the number of people who can vote. We can do that by registering massive numbers of voters in strategic areas across the country.

Remember, it does not have to be a house—or your house! It can be the basement of your house of worship, a quiet cafe—anywhere you can connect a device (computer, tablet, laptop) with an internet connection (wifi or cell phone hot spot), and gather some folks together.
