For our September General Meeting, our local Swing Left coordinators, Cynthia Spring Pearson and Kurt Anderson, are going to speak about Swing Left’s efforts here in Riverside.
Their presentation will cover some of the following:
• What is Swing Left
• What District the Riverside Swing Left has targeted and why.
• What does Swing Left do
• What folks can do as volunteers to help Swing Left’s efforts.
• How can you find out more about Swing Left
The 2018 midterm elections are the next best chance for progressives to regain power in our government—by taking back the House of Representatives.
The House of Representatives has 435 seats, 64 of which we consider competitive. These are the Swing Districts, where Congress is won and lost. To get a say in our government, we’ll need to win about 66% of them.
Riverside is within 50 miles of 5 of these winnable districts.
In addition to these speakers, we also hope to have a firm date for our planned citizenship classes, efforts to save DACA, a vote on early recommendation of Penny Newman for Riverside County Supervisor Ward 2, and news about our upcoming booth at the Southern California Fair.
