In 2018 Swing Left articulated a winning strategy. Now they have an ambitious new mission for 2020: take all three houses: Senate, House, and White, plus key state legislatures to block gerrymandering. CDTC has identified some additional work such as urging mail-in voting in key states, and insuring election integrity.
The CDTC is partnering with CRTA on selected projects and outreach to volunteers.
