While we welcome all Spanish speakers to this event, you do not need to speak Spanish to participate, as we'll have sample language ready to use. This is impactful and meaningful work, reaching voters who don't usually get much information about their Congressional election and what's at stake. All are welcome at this all ages postcard party. Light refreshments will be provided. Please bring your own postcards and stamps if you can, but we will have postcards available.

Sister District SF Phone Bank for Felicia French & Bobby Tyler (San Francisco)

Hosted by Sister District San Francisco

Eventbrite 

Join Sister District SF volunteer and host Joan Rost at her home for a Phone Bank in Nob Hill.  First time phone bankers welcome! If you've never volunteered at a phone bank before, we will train you on-site.

Currently, Arizona is a GOP trifecta -- a state where Republicans hold the governor's office and control of both chambers of the state legislature. Sister District SF volunteers can change that!  Help Felicia French and Bobby Tyler flip both House of Representative seats in AZ's House of Representatives in the 6th Legislative District. Feel free to stop by any time between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., based on whatever time works best for you.

IMPORTANT: Bring a charged cell phone AND a laptop, iPad, or tablet and your smile! Head phones are recommended.

This is a private residence located in Nob Hill. RSVP confirmations will include the address location and contact details.

Turn Arizona Blue with Sean Bowie (San Francisco)

Hosted by Sister District San Francisco

Join Sister District SF and local activists to turn Arizona Blue! In coming to support State Senator Sean Bowie on July 19th you're doing three things:

1) You're helping flip one of the red-est State Senates Blue. We need to hold Bowie's seat and flip only 3 more seats to take control of the AZ State Senate.

2) You're stopping candidates like Joe Arpaio from going to Congress! We know that when Democrats turn out to vote down ticket, they are going to vote at the top of the ticket.

3) In accomplishing #1 you eliminate a testing ground for Republican legislation. Don't forget AZ has introduced legislation that; stops schools from banning firearms on campus, stops local cities from passing soda-taxes, and has introduced numerous anti-choice bills. 

ALL of these things stand in opposition to San Francisco values. In coming to this fundraiser you are saying no to laws just like these. Hope you can join us to learn more about Senator Bowie, why this race is important, and the impact of the Sister District Project.  If you can’t attend the party, you can donate at http://bit.ly/Sean4AZSenate

Can American Democracy Be De-Polarized? Some Thoughts on Restoring Democratic Discourse and Accountability (San Francisco)

Political polarization in contemporary American politics doesn’t simply reflect the fact that we are more sharply divided on the issues but instead stems from deeper structural forces like rising economic inequality, declining social mobility, rapid cultural change,and the reorganization of the public sphere with the rise of digital and social media. If correct, this suggests that in order to make our politics less divisive and fractious we cannot simply will ourselves to be more open to the other side but must instead seek to address the structural causes of polarization. This would require a successful reactivation of what will be described as the politics of democratic self-repair, i.e. when democratic citizens mobilize to fix problems with democracy itself. In this talk Professor David Peritz will discuss the general idea of this kinds of politics, the impediments to its successful reactivation in the early 21st century, and some recent more promising developments.
