State Senators Continue S. 1 Advocacy
|Two state senators from Massachusetts, Jo Comerford and Becca Rausch,
joined 150 state legislators from around the country for a rally to ask the
U.S. Senate to protect voting rights. 30 minutes after the rally ended,
Senator Comerford wrote to thank the tireless activists at Northampton
"A rally to bring together 150 state legislators from 30 states ended moments ago. DC is buzzing with chants of #RecessCanWait! Sending a few pictures to give you a sense of the energy and commitments being made today. I'm SO inspired by state colleagues on the ground in states like Texas, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Wisconsin."
Your calls and postcards to constituents of key senators is helping to fuel the fire for voter rights.
Organizing Hub: Phone Bank for S. 1
|Join Susan Labandibar and Jeff
Lobo from Swing Blue Alliance on Saturday from 3-5 pm at the Mass Dems
Organizing Hub for a phone bank to pass the For the People Act. A new
version of the bill will be out shortly, so now is a great time to call.
This phone bank set up by End Citizens United uses your computer to dial NH voters to ask them to show their support for the bill. No phone needed! Voters who agree to speak to their senator are patched through quickly and easily to the senator's office.
There will be training and support for the whole time you are calling.
To prepare: Make sure you have a computer with a microphone (preferably a headset) and a solid Internet connection.
Announcing Our 2022 Strategy
preparation for the 2022 midterms, Swing Blue Alliance is building
relationships with groups on the ground, learning where we can fill in the
gaps, and creating opportunities for volunteers to take targeted and
effective action. We plan to help do the year-round organizing work that
gets voters engaged, strengthens and grows the Democratic base, and connects
with independent voters.
We plan to be active in states where we can be productive, narrowing in on competitive races where we have the chance to win. We are planning work in Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Virginia.

Updates on S. 1
|It can be difficult to see what progress is being made to pull
together our "big tent" Democratic Party behind protecting the freedom to
cast a vote and have it count. But progress is being made
and we are doing our part to keep up the momentum, alongside:
Join us as we continue to make our voices heard on the critical need for voting reform.
Spanish Phone Banks for S. 1
|For many years, some Hispanic voters have not been able to access
information regarding their voting rights because of their language barrier.
As a group of young Spanish-speaking volunteers, we believe this needs to
change, as citizens should always be aware of their democratic rights.
We invite you to join us in our effort to have Hispanic people's voices be heard by their senators. Join us to call Spanish-speaking voters in CA to encourage them to contact their senators to support the For the People Act, eliminate the filibuster and combat voter suppression.
You'll need to be fluent in both Spanish and English, but there are no other requirements -- shifts always include training for first-timers.

|During the 2020 election, we
realized that we wanted our name to reflect the full sum of our community,
our partners, as well as the independence we've built over the last five
years. Therefore, over the course of this summer, we'll be renaming and
rebranding Swing Left Greater Boston to Swing Blue
Alliance, to better reflect the reality of our organization, hosts,
volunteers, and partnerships.
