Swing Left Events and Volunteer Opportunities 10-17

Welcome to Swing Left San Francisco!

Swing Left San Francisco is a grassroots organization advocating for every citizen’s right to vote and dedicated to flipping California’s 10th Congressional District. We are a regional chapter of the national Swing Left organization. Our goal is to support local activists in the district who want to replace Republican Jeff Denham in the House of Representatives with a Democrat in the 2018 Congressional elections.  We remain candidate-neutral until the Democratic primary is decided.

Our current activities include canvassing in District 10 for voter registration drives and cultivating relationships with local progressive groups and voters, phone banking into District 10 and fundraising for District 10.  As we approach the mid-term elections, these activities will change to reflect necessary tasks to turn District 10 and other California Districts from Red to Blue.

Whether it's canvassing in the District, registering voters, making calls, texting or writing postcards, there are ways for everyone to be part of the big blue wave that's about to inundate our country.   

Join us at one of our upcoming events.

20 days until the Midterm Election! If you haven't signed up for one of the remaining shifts, here they all are, just an easy click away.

We need carpooler drivers! If you're planning on driving to a canvass, please sign up for a carpool (there's a carpool link for each canvass).

If it's your first time canvassing, be sure to download the PDI app (for iPhone or Android) before leaving to canvass and watch this video about how to use it.
