Host a Toast to Democracy!

Get your shakers and jiggers ready and try these volunteer drink suggestions

Raise your glass and share a toast to Democracy with friends!

With the GOP doubling down on all kinds of repression at the state level, our energy and persistence are more necessary than ever! 

Unwind with friends and share a drink in support of Schuyler VanValkenburg, a dad, high school civics teacher, and six-year VA House Delegate who's running to flip a key Virginia State Senate seat.

Sign up to host and mix up a few drinks (cocktails and mocktails) sourced from Sister District volunteers around the country. We'd love to add your favorite drink to the list!. We'll provide you with a unique fundraising link to keep track of donations. If you wish, our team of devoted organizers can even help you set up an event to track RSVPs and suggest best practices and talking points.
