Swing Left East Bay is fighting to end the destructive policies of the Republican Party and Donald Trump by taking back the political levers of power

We organize activities in the San Francisco East Bay with the goal of flipping Senate seats in Arizona and Colorado, holding congressional seats in California’s 10th and 21st districts that were won in 2018, and working on other elections as needed to have the greatest strategic impact.

Upcoming Events

The state legislative races in Virginia on November 5, 2019 will have ramifications nationwide. Republicans have engaged in unfair practices, like racial gerrymandering, to rig district maps and gain outsized control. We need to flip just two seats in each chamber to gain the Democratic majority. Join us for an upcoming phone bank or letter-writing party to ensure victory in Virginia and then come celebrate with us on election night.

Election night party - November 5, 2019 - details here.
