Designed to build upon the down-ballot momentum generated last cycle, the State Bridges program will activate Sister District volunteers across the country to fundraise for organizations leading year-round power-building work in key states.
We’ve seen in recent years that progressive victories are possible in purple and red states like Arizona, Georgia and Virginia, when we support local power-building organizations and the activists that lead them. Long-term community-based organizing, often led by people of color, lays the critical foundation of civic engagement all year long that leads to our collective ability to build progressive power in state legislatures come Election Day. The State Bridges program creates a way for the Sister District community to fundraise for select partner organizations doing this work in our 2021 and 2022 target states.
