5-6 pm | State Swingers Mixer
Join us at the ACE rooftop bar to meet state legislative candidates including Tammy Savoie (HD94) and Beverly Brooks Thompson (SD16). Attendees will donate directly to a candidate running in a different legislative district than where the donor lives - together, we can swing these districts blue! No host bar.

Gaby Goldstein, Co-Founder & Political Director at Sister District
Ben Zucker, Co-Founder of Step Up Louisiana

Panel will be broadcast live on 102.3FM WHIV and recorded for the Resistance Radio NOLA podcast.

7-8 pm | Candidate Meet + Greet
Come join Democratic state legislative candidates, community organizers and volunteers in the Ace lobby after the panel discussion. Learn about opportunities to volunteer with Democratic campaigns to help flip seats blue this year!
