|We The People: A Bay Area Resistance Group||Grassroots Activism|
|flippable.org||Electoral Organization||What we do: Our mission is to turn America blue by building a movement to flip seats. To build this movement, we need to radically simplify political action. We focus on state legislature elections—races that play a huge role in national elections but are often overlooked. Information about these races is hard to find, and busy people don’t have the time to sift through it. That’s where we come in. We’ll tell you which races are more important, who’s running, and how you can support email@example.com||https://www.flippable.org/|
Volunteer support: We will try and direct volunteers to whichever resource the candidates feel will be useful. Some races will need phone bankers, some candidates will ask volunteers to hold house parties, and all will need social media exposure. Once a Democratic candidate is declared for a race, flippable will provide as much volunteer opportunity information as possible.
In terms of volunteers helping flippable: Keeping up with the most up-to-date information for these races is a challenge. We could use a solid group of volunteers to help us research and update our data!
