Swing Left Events and Volunteer Opportunities 10-31

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.

Less than a week until the Midterm Election!

We now go into full bore GOTV mode. We just added four new canvasses in Turlock to help out the team there. Turlock is 20 minutes farther away than Modesto, but it's Josh's home town and well worth the extra mileage to turn out his supporters.

There are a limited number of FREE MOTEL ROOMS available in Turlock. The rooms are shared, and meant for those canvassers who would otherwise not be able to come stay to canvass. Overnighters are expected to do at least 3 canvass shifts. Fill out this form to submit a request.

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. 

New Location for GOTV Phone Banks!

From Nov. 3 through Election Day, Nov. 6, we'll be holding special phone banks at Harrington Galleries at 599 Valencia Street (corner of Valencia and 17th Street) in SF. They will be open from 9 AM to 7 PM for all four days of the GOTV period.  We are co-sponsoring these with Democracy Action, Sister District, and other Resistance groups. Drop by any time while the phone bank is open, but please do RSVP so we can be prepared

A few seats left on the buses to CA-10!

Due to late cancellations, there are a limited number of tickets available for the Swing Left Bus to CA-10 on Saturday 11/3 to canvass for Josh Harder on the bus from San Francisco and the other bus from San Rafael & Oakland. If you'd like to take one of these two buses, please confirm by emailing colleen@swingleft.org and let her know your phone number and where you'd like to get on the bus.
