Swing Left was started by Ethan Todras-Whitehill, a writer and teacher, Joshua Krafchin, a marketer and entrepreneur, and Miriam Stone, a brand strategist. The three brought in their friends, who in turn brought in their friends, to help build Swing Left in the wake of the 2016 election.

We weren’t politicians or professional organizers. Swing Left was started by a group of individuals from diverse industries, including tech, media, finance, nonprofits, and art. We are citizens. And like many people, we'd been sitting on the sidelines for too long. We didn't have all the answers, but we knew it was time to channel our anger and despair in a positive direction.
"Since then, Swing Left has grown into a grassroots movement of hundreds of thousands of people across the country. The national organization is now led by Executive Director Ethan Todras-Whitehill, Chief Community Officer Matt Ewing, and Chief Marketing Officer Michelle Finocchi. [1]
