Attention - Known meeting Cancelations

Rebecca Auerbach:
 
At our last DPCCC meeting, I announced a meeting at my house on increasing the focus on the climate crisis in local elections.
The main organizer, Marti Roach from 350 Bay Area, has decided to postpone the meeting as she and 350 need more time after the primary to get ready for next steps.
I’ll spread the word when new meeting date is set. Anyone interested can also contact Marti directly at 925-376-3853.

DEMOCRATS IN ACTION: The Democratic Party of CCC is the voice of over 300,000 registered Democrats in Contra Costa County.  We support issues that protect the safety net for working families, children, immigrants, our seniors, LGBTQ community and those that have been disenfranchised by institutional racism and discrimination.  We speak out when we see injustice.
We are dedicated volunteers working with our allies to elect Democrats, pass effective legislation and empower our democratic clubs and community to take action. Our job as Democrats requires a multi-faceted approach. At the national, state and local level, we must Resist Trump’s Executive Orders. Locally, we must Build our Party by registering voters, support grass-roots organizing efforts, empower our Democratic Clubs, and Get Out the Vote (GOTV). We must “Build the Bench” for 2020 & 2022:  

  • Develop and train young and emerging leaders to run successfully for elected office.  
  • Support progressive democratic leadership that reflects the diversity of Contra Costa County.

 Let’s Lace Up Those Shoe’s, Make Some Noise and Organize.  We are Democrats in Action.
