Our Targets

Flip the States
States Hold the Keys to our Democracy
Brush up on the states we’re watching in 2019-20

From writing the rules of our elections to drawing the lines of our electoral districts, state legislatures wield immense power over our democracy. The GOP has spent years using that power to suppress votes and gerrymander districts in order to build the legislative majorities needed to pass regressive laws. So, in preparation for redistricting in 2021, we’re working to build better, more representative government through the states. Here’s where we’re fighting for our democracy.

Why Focus on these States?

States write the rules of national elections

States control voting methods and draw congressional maps. When the GOP suppresses votes, Dems lose.

States pass policies that affect our lives

From healthcare to gun control, the laws that impact our lives the most are often passed by the states.

States build a progressive bench

Serving at the state level gets future Democratic leaders (like Barack Obama) ready to run for national office.

States are the best value for your time and money

Compared to national races, state races are cheap. Grassroots donations can make the difference in state elections.
