Impact on Tap: Let's Take Back Congress (San Francisco)

It's time for Impact on Tap! Join us on June 7 for a happy hour homebrew beer tasting as we work to take back the House this year by raising crucial funds for the Democratic nominees in Swing Districts across the country, especially in California.

Donate Here: https://swingleft.org/fundraise/impactontap

We’re supporting Swing Left, a national grassroots network working to take back the House for Democrats. Our plan is to raise as much money and mobilize as many grassroots volunteers as possible for the eventual Democratic nominees in 70 critical Swing Districts.

The midterm election season is just getting started. That's why we need to get our Democratic Swing District nominees as much grassroots support as possible. Even more, the path to taking back the House in November goes right through California.  It's critical that we lead the charge. You don’t need to give a large amount—each and every dollar makes a difference. 

What's Impact on Tap? Impact on Tap is about three things: supporting great organizations, bringing people together to talk about issues that matter, and tasting homebrew. It's about engaging around important issues facing our communities and country and having an impact locally and nationally. Prior organizations supported by Impact on Tap include Forward Majority, Code for America, New Leaders Council. Emerge, and Planned Parenthood. Special shout out to Zach and the Exygy team for hosting us at their office in the Mission! 

Join us Thursday, June 7th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm for an evening of tasting homebrew for a good cause. We'll have a number of Beeraucracy beers available for tasting, including Grab 'Em By the Patriarchy, State of the Brewnion, the Governator, My President is Black, and Smashing Trumpkins, as well as the award-winning Collect-Hef Bargaining and Harvey Milk Chocolate Stout. Don't forget the beer naming contest! The suggested contribution is $50 and every attendee receives unlimited tastings and hors d'ouevres.

So mark your calendar, grab some friends, and join us on June 7 to toast to taking back Congress! Again, please donate here: https://swingleft.org/fundraise/impactontap. Suggested donation is $50 but please just come and give whatever makes sense Please join us and help take back the House---the general election is closer than you think, and it's time for us all to step up and get all hands on deck.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Onward,
Efrem, Matt, Zach, and Vikrum

Join me and other Swing Left volunteers as we GET OUT THE VOTE (GOTV) in Manteca, which is part of Swing District CA10, for Democrats for the June 5th Primary in CA 10.   This is the last weekend before the June 5 Primary.   There are now two Republicans and five Democrats running to represent the Congressional CA-10 District in Congress.  Due to California's "Jungle Primary," we need to greatly increase Democrat turnout on June 5 to make sure that a Democrat will be one of the two "top vote getters" and move on to the November ballot.

The goal is simple: Swing the House in the 2018 midterm elections and put a check on the Trump agenda. If you have never canvassed before, this is an easy way to get started!

Swing Left Peninsula Canvassing Training (Redwood City)

  • Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Redwaood City (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Be a Part of the “Blue Wave” in CA-10 (California's 10th Congressional District)
What: Canvassing Training in Redwood City, plus a Guest Speaker regarding CA-10

The training will involve:

·     How to use your “personal story” to engage voters
·     A review of voter registration forms
·     “Hacks” and tricks for optimal canvassing
·     Some role playing to get a bit of practice

It’s not essential to be trained before signing up for Swing Left canvassing events (there is always some on-site training), but this training will go deeper into the “how-to's” of canvassing than on-site training does. After this session you should feel fully confident signing up for the canvasses in CA-10 that are coming up in the critical months ahead. 

Guest Speaker: Before the training session, Shuwaski Young, Organizing Director for the California Democratic Party, SF Bay Area, will speak about CA-10 and answer questions.

Approximate schedule:
4:00-4:30: Sign-in and mingle
4:30-5:00: Remarks and Q&A about CA-10 by Shuwaski Young
5:00-6:15: Canvassing training
