Action 2: Volunteer for the Sister District Project

Sister District aims to ensure that all Americans have equal representation and our government works for all people, not just the minority in power. The group organizes volunteers into local teams based on where they live and "sister" this deep blue energy with swing districts across the country to support strategic state races that matter.

They have a strategic, targeted focus on critical down-ballot, state races that—if won by Democrats—will make it easier to win national elections.

Sister District supports a portfolio of races, with the strategic goals of (1) flipping Republican-held state chambers (2) holding fragile Democratic majorities in state chambers, and (3) making blue inroads in badly gerrymandered states.

Volunteer with Sister District to start making a difference in the 2018 midterms!

Action 3: Share “Know Your Rights” Graphics

Right now, immigrants and Latinx people around the country are being racially profiled by ICE, Customs and Border Patrol, and local police departments. This can lead to detainments--regardless of immigration or citizenship status--and, in many cases, to deportations that split families apart.

It’s important for everyone to know their rights when dealing with ICE and other law enforcement agencies around immigration issues.

United We Dream has created helpful infographics that explain your rights at home, in public, and at work.

Please share these graphics on Facebook and Twitter to spread the word!
