About our group

November UPDATE:
Though 2022 election results and data analysis are not yet complete, thus far the achievements of The States Project have been extraordinary:

- With trifectas in Michigan and Minnesota, TSP has helped to ensure that women there and in nearby states will have access to abortion and can help hold the ground against any national abortion ban
- In AZ, PA, NC, and NV we are closer than ever to Democratic power and policy priorities
- ME can continue the Democratic policy momentum that TSP made possible in the prior election cycle
- States across the country are better fortified to resist election sabotage.

We sent early state by state results to our Giving Circle donors with info about TSP strategies and decisions.
Here’s what they said:

Brava, bravissima!!! I’m so…..thrilled by
this report which must
have made every donor feel great!
I think the visual presentation and
analysis should become a model for how
to communicate with donors. You told us
succinctly what worked and what didn’t
work. You made us understand the
difference that our money made. I have
never seen a better presentation or one
that made me feel better as a donor!
Onward and upward with TSP!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!
WHAT A FABULOUS SET OF RESULTS!!!
I'm very happy to have played a small part
in this.

I am so impressed, not just with the
results, but with the wise choices……
congratulations.

I went to sleep fearful and woke up
hopeful. Thank you for your tireless
efforts to save our democracy.

Teamwork makes the Dream work!
Onward and forward!

For our part, this project has been possibly the most rewarding political work either of us has ever done. It has helped to relieve the distress of this political climate. It makes us feel in a visceral way the power of being citizens in a democracy. We can directly make change and not just by voting.

We thank TSP for giving us a way to help in a concrete, substantive way.

As Melissa says, onward!

October UPDATE:
A HUGE thank you from The ReSisters Giving Circle to the more than 100 people – ReSisters, friends, family members, acquaintances, perfect strangers inspired to help – who together raised $17,548 in just over six weeks for state legislature candidates in Arizona and Michigan.

With matching funds that brings us to a total of $19,323.

Thank you for working to protect democracy and support policies that benefit people and communities.

We continue to welcome donations, but after October 17 they can no longer be state specific. They will become part of The States Project Rapid Response Fund to provide nimble funding for last-minute electoral opportunities, ballot curing, helping with recounts, etc.

Thank you for all you do.

Time for Democrats to show up and fight for state power like they mean it: hair on fire, ballots blazing.

We are the ReSisters, a politically engaged group that was born in New York City but welcomes concerned Americans everywhere who want to HELP WIN BACK DEMOCRATIC POWER IN THE STATES.

The ReSisters States Project Giving Circle will direct its funds to Arizona and Michigan. Arizona is ground zero for election denial, and we need to flip only one seat in each chamber. In Michigan, we need just a few seats in each chamber, and the Michigan Senate may be the Democrats’ best target this cycle. See TSP pages for AZ here and MI here.

The States Project does all the hard work with deep analysis to identify the most important races and customized, effective support to candidates that have the best chance to win. And The States Project has had real impact, helping to win dozens of races and flipping state legislative chambers.

100% of the amount received from Giving Circles for The States Project’s electoral work goes to states. The independent Democratic donor advisory group Blue Tent says:

“If you give through TSP you can trust that your money will go to races where it is most needed. Blue Tent rates it a high priority that we recommend to donors.”

Want more reasons to join us?

1. What happens in Michigan or Arizona doesn’t stay in Michigan or Arizona. States try out and refine policies that become models for national policy and affect everyone, as we see every day with voting rights, abortion, gerrymandering, climate action, education, health care, LGBT rights, and many other issues.

2. The Supreme Court will hear a case in 2023 that could vastly expand state power under the theoretical “independent state legislature doctrine,” which would give states control of Congressional elections, and perhaps even Presidential ones, unrestrained by law or state constitutions. (At least four justices are open to this idea.) Imagine state legislators choosing presidential electors, disempowering voters, and overturning elections without oversight or accountability.

3. State legislatures are key defenses against a long list of far right proposals, including a national constitutional convention and new Constitutional amendments to enshrine reactionary policies.

4. The States Project is a great return on investment: State legislative races come cheap; each seat costs a fraction of a US Congressional or Senate race. And state races are often decided by a few thousand votes or less.

The States Project is a critical initiative to help preserve our democracy, and anyone can help. If you are sick of watching Republicans call the shots in state after state, step up, raise your hand, and…...

PLEASE JOIN US! We sincerely thank you for whatever contributions you can make.
