They See Blue's History
OUR ORIGIN STORY
They See Blue was founded in the Silicon Valley in August 2018, just a couple months before the United States midterm elections. With laser-focused strategy, They See Blue organized the power of the South Asian community with the goal of flipping the CA-10, CA-21, and CA-22 House seats in California from red to blue. With the help of other grass roots organizations, They See Blue grew its membership to 200, held successful fundraisers, and conducted targeted outreach to South Asian families through canvassing, phone banking, and sponsoring political ads on local radio stations. As a result, CA-10 and CA-21 were won.
In 2018, They See Blue helped flip the House from majority Republican to majority Democratic.
2018 Midterm wins
Until the 2020 elections, They See Blue will aim to defend the districts flipped, expand our targets to Senate races nationwide and Presidency, and engage more South Asians in the political process. They See Blue will spread their vision to South Asians around the country, with extra attention paid to Swing States, by creating new They See Blue chapters and working with other like-minded South Asian and progressive organizations.
They See Blue has active chapters in the Silicon Valley, the Youth Leadership Council, Georgia. We also have emerging chapters in Texas, Arizona, and Pennsylvania. To learn more about how to get involved, click here!
