Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other tie. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Do you believe that we can take back all levels of government for the people from the bottom up?
If you said yes, then we should start with City Councils, to School Boards to County Commissions, to State Legislature, to Governor, to the Congress, Senate and President. The best way to elect Democrats is on a personal level at the doors–conversations about how to vote and the issues we care about. We must If our values. We know the current one-party rule at the national and state level is bad for democracy.
It is clear the Republican Party is now so radical and so extreme they have totally lost what it means to serve and to put people first. Whether it is separating children and families, shutting down the government, giving the biggest government handout in decades to millionaires and billionaires while pretending they are giving tax cuts to our families or cutting health insurance and food stamps to working families. The GOP is now the party of mean.
We need you.
To take back our government, we need help from dedicated and enthusiastic people like you.
Help from dedicated volunteers provide critical resources and are the lifeblood of any successful campaign.
Volunteers perform a diverse array of tasks, from door-to-door canvassing to stuffing letters, to making calls. But while the work is diverse, one thing is always consistent -- there is always a friendly, team-oriented environment in which you get to promote progressive values and meet new people at the same time!
We understand that everyone has different interests and a different amount of time that they are able to commit to volunteering. Once you submit the form, we will get in touch with you (via telephone or e-mail, whichever you prefer) and talk to you about how you would like to help and upcoming opportunities.
