Who We Are
Sister District Yolo is an affiliate of Sister District, a national organization formed in 2016 to activate volunteers and organizations in “safe” blue districts to win elections in “swing” districts across the country. Our local chapter builds Democratic majorities at all levels of government by supporting and assisting key campaigns with grassroots action and strategic partnerships. We work year-round to increase voter engagement and build progressive political power. We are a welcoming, dedicated, and engaged community of volunteers committed to turning our shared values into actions to change our country. Join us!
We equip and empower activists to elect Democrats in strategic races to expand progressive power.
We envision a country in which:
All people are valued and served by their government
Racial justice, economic justice and voting rights are at the heart of our democracy
Government ensures the health and well-being of both our people and a sustainable planet
The governing majorities at all levels of government reflect the diversity of the people they represent
People feel energized and enabled to vote, to engage and to determine our country’s direction
We DO THE WORK. We use both innovative and time-tested tactics to increase voter engagement and win at the ballot box.
We are STRATEGIC. We are thoughtful and transparent in setting our priorities and making the best use of volunteers’ skills, interests, and time to work effectively toward our vision.
We are COLLABORATIVE. We believe our capability and long term success benefits from partnerships with other groups working for progressive political power, especially organizations led by people of color.
We DEVELOP LEADERS. We recruit, train, and support activists from every part of our diverse community and country.
We are COMMITTED. We acknowledge that many aspects of our country are broken and know that systemic change depends on our long-term, year-round commitment.
