In Newton and Massachusetts we are fortunate to have strong Democratic representation in the state legislature and in the U.S. Congress. Our values are well-represented.
What then can Newtonites do to fight back against the nationwide GOP? As we have done so many times in New Hampshire, we suggest:
- Increasing the number of Democrats in Congress by fundraising, organizing voter contact and volunteering for candidates in other states.
- Increasing the number of states controlled by Democrats (only 13 now) by helping Democrats running for statewide offices in swing states. For example, in addition to NH, Maine and New York have legislatures that are competitive.
The Newton Dems with information from The Sister District Project and Flippable will support, empower and amplify the efforts of Newtonites who want to lend a hand across state borders to help elect Democrats. What can you do to help?
Let us know if you want to help.
- We need people to host grassroots fundraisers, travel to swing districts to volunteer, make contact with Democratic Party organizations and candidates in swing districts, organize and run phone banks and identify priority races. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
