Let’s turn Virginia blue!
Join Sister District MA-RI to help our candidates Schuyler VanValkenburg and Russet Perry build progressive power in the Virginia State Legislature!
Schuyler is a History and US Government teacher at Glen Allen High, VA, and has served in the VA House of Delegates for the past six years. Now, he’s running for State Senate, SD 16! As the foremost education expert in the House of Delegates, Schuyler works to ensure that Virginia remains a leader in public education.
Russet has devoted her life to public service, at the Georgetown Law Domestic Violence Clinic, as a prosecutor in Loudoun County where she helped establish the Mental Health and Drug Court dockets, and as a CIA Officer.
Both Schuyler and Russet are running for the Virginia State Senate to pass common-sense gun safety legislation, protect reproductive freedom, expand access to affordable, high-quality healthcare, and increase access to the ballot box.
The 2023 Virginia general election is critical; we must flip the House and expand the Senate majority to pass legislation on education, voting rights, and gun control, and fight back against attacks on access to abortion and LGBTQ+ rights. Democrats lost the House majority in 2021 by only 733 votes and the Senate majority is vulnerable.
Why phonebank? The data proves it: phonebanking is THE BEST volunteering option for remote voter contact. We identify supporters and let them know why their vote matters, speak to undecided voters, and recruit local volunteers. Every call helps us tidy our lists, which makes for a faster, more efficient phonebank!
Come one, come all: No experience necessary. Each Zoom phonebank includes training and check-ins for first-timers (experienced callers can jump right in). We’ll share successes and address questions throughout, all while contacting voters in crucial state legislative races. Our veteran phonebank leaders will help you get comfortable, increase your effectiveness, and make sure you have a great experience.
