To the Swing Left community—thank you.
Over the course of 2022, you engaged in critical work to protect our democracy and support Democrats up and down the ballot—raising tens of millions of dollars for competitive candidates and civic organizations, and contacting millions of voters via door knocks, phone calls, and Vote Forward letters.
Together, we stopped the long-predicted “red wave” and helped Democrats achieve the most successful midterm election for the party of a sitting president in decades. Democrats expanded their Senate majority because of you. We have new state-level Democratic trifectas because of you. Election deniers up and down the ballot were defeated because of you. Democracy itself is safer because of you.
I’m buoyed by the incredible perseverance and strength of this community of volunteers and donors. I learned quickly when I became executive director of Swing Left this summer, that “the antidote to anger and anxiety is action” isn’t just a hollow motto—it’s truly how this community shows up each and every day.
Together, we’re fighting on the right side of history, and for that, I am incredibly grateful. I hope you are, too.
P.S. Looking to support the tools, programs, and people helping to achieve a progressive future we can all be proud of? Consider making a donation to Swing Left.
