Flip the West, formerly Flip the 14, was founded in 2017 knowing the weight of history was on the shoulders of good people committed to restoring decency and accountability in Washington. With the dark cloud of Trump, his enablers in the Republican Party, and all the negativity they represent on our minds, we began our work helping to organize the Resistance in California.
We worked closely with like-minded organizations and activists to recruit volunteers and reach voters who might otherwise stay home in the California House districts represented by Republicans. More than 1.5 million voter contacts later, our work was vindicated: seven House Republicans were replaced by House Democrats, helping Democrats take back the House of Representatives.
The 2020 Election
In 2020, the fight for the soul of America continues, with a renewed urgency to flip the U.S. Senate and White House.
That’s why Flip the West is working to elect excellent candidates in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, and Montana. We organize and amplify volunteer opportunities to reach the voters Democrats need to win, and we serve as a clearinghouse for blue wave organizations looking to get involved where it matters most.
Through Flip the West, activists have an opportunity to get involved by:
- Phone banking
- Door-to-door Canvassing
- Voter Registration
- …and More
