We’re supporting this event put-on by the Sister District Project, CA-41,Riverside.

A variety of handmade crafts and holiday items will be available.

This is also a fundraising event in support of Sister District campaigns for the Virginia House of Delegates. Winning auction bids will go to Democratic contenders Kathleen Murphy,District 34, and Mike Mullin, District 93.

Sister District is an organization started in California following the 2016 election. It is a way for Californians in “blue districts” to support Democratic candidates who have a good chance of taking back legislatures in other states. The purpose is to rectify the Republican gerrymandering which has skewed voting districts to favor Republican candidates.
