- Statehood/DC Affairs: We will support Democratic candidates who have confirmed they support DC Statehood. We will work to defeat Republican candidates who support congressional interference in DC affairs. #HandsOffDC
- Proximity: We will work in districts geographically close to DC.
- Impact: We will work in districts that stand a good chance of being one of the 23 seats we need to flip the House this November. We want our contribution to impact the composition of the House of Representatives.
- Leslie Cockburn (VA-5) - every weekend in Warrenton, VA (with SwingLeft)

Join your Ward 6 neighbors and write postcards to inconsistent Democratic voters in one of our four targeted Virginia swing districts, urging them to make a voting plan and reminding them of the issues. These events are kid-friendly, social, and an easy way to participate if you can't do canvassing.
We provide: postcards, stamps, talking points, pens, stickers, and voter addresses. And snacks.
You bring: energy to elect Democrats, legible writing, creative ways to say “time to get out and vote!”, and donations (if you can).
