Living in the blue bubble of the bay area, it is easy to feel powerless to impact the political reality of our country. In today's interconnected world however, what you do here in the East Bay can have reverberations across the country if you know how to harness your power and direct it strategically. East Bay Activist Alliance and Swing Left have developed innovative approaches that engage activists from regions both red and blue to influence elections and voter registration efforts in key swing states.
