Sister District phonebank for Sharon Hirsch

July 26

In 2018 Sharon Hirsch came within 391 votes of flipping TX66 for the first time in decades, and she did it with no paid staff. With your help, Sharon can be one of nine candidates who flip the Texas House in November. When that happens, gerrymandering will be reversed and hundreds of state legislative seats, plus 38 seats—9% of the total— in the U.S. House of Representatives will be elected with fair and full participation by Democrats for the first time in a decade.

We need to flip 9 seats in the 150 seat Texas House to take control. We flipped 12 seats in 2018 and currently there are 9 districts which voted for Beto O’Rourke in 2018 and have Republican State House Representatives (including District 66).

RSVP HERE

So we need to do everything in our power to make sure Sharon is elected. With canvassing suspended, reaching out to voters by telephone is the most effective way we can connect with them right now.

This event will start with an online Zoom training, then you’ll make calls from your homes. If you have any questions, Sister District volunteers will be available by telephone to help throughout the phonebank.
