We fundraise, campaign and get out the vote. We host speakers and candidate forums, write postcards, make phone calls and connect with our neighbors. And in the process of electing Dems and making government more responsive and more representative, we have a lot of fun.
Join our canvass for Herb this Saturday, Aug. 13, beginning at 9 am at Historic Triangle Dems HQ, 113K Palace Lane, Williamsburg. Talking to voters at their doorstep is one of the best ways to get votes for Herb. If you can’t walk doors, do you know some younger family members or friends who can? If you find it works better to walk on weekday evenings or some other time, we can accommodate that too. Sign up now!
Help get Herb Jones some billboards! Herb Jones is running in the 1st CD against longtime back-bencher Rob Wittman, and he needs our help to buy billboards.
Signs and billboards build name recognition — and that’s important. Redistricting has changed the 1st CD substantially, and almost half of voters were not in the previous 1st CD. Even better, those new areas have a larger proportion of Democratic voters. Please help us meet and exceed our goal!
Mark your calendar for our August Historic Triangle Dems meeting on Aug. 18 at 7 pm on Zoom or by phone. Recent news has made us aware how important elections for law enforcement and other local offices can be. Longtime York Sheriff Danny Diggs is stepping down to run against Monty Mason for state senate. Ron Montgomery, acting sheriff, will join us to talk about law enforcement issues and answer our questions. This is an important race, and we’ll be inviting all the candidates to talk with us. Register here.
Check out photos from our recent Pride Gathering and our marchers in the Yorktown 4th of July Parade. Photos from our great picnic coming soon!
Give some thought to joining NEIGHBORS UNITED FOR CHANGE. Organizing at the neighborhood level helps us recruit volunteers and communicate about important issues neighbor-to-neighbor and friend-to-friend. Want to organize an interest group you’re involved with, or a group of your friends? That works too. Or if you’re already a part of an existing neighborhood group, we’d love to work with you.
