It’s been another productive week for Your CDP Team. See below for a recap of this week’s activities.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETTY YEE!!!
Our warmest birthday wishes to State Controller Betty Yee! We hope she’s having a wonderful day, and we want to take this opportunity to say California is damn lucky to have a State Controller with an activist’s heart, a Nobel laureate mind, and the progressive spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt, Shirley Chisolm and Leslie Knope.
Volunteers Needed to Promote & Protect the Vote
S-O-S! Calling All Cars! All Hands On Deck! The CDP needs volunteers for our Promote & Protect the Vote program. This is a critical part of building the Big Blue Wave.
Promote & Protect the Vote is our safeguard against Republican voter suppression and vote tampering. Lawyers can earn CLE credits.
Throughout this week, Your CDP Team was proud to partner with Live Nation and register voters at one of Sacramento’s premier music venues (Ace of Spades – check it out sometime, the staff was extraordinarily courteous and supportive!) for a series of concerts. We were, of course, scrupulous about helping anyone to register regardless of Party, and we welcomed the chance to engage voters, build awareness for the Election and show Democrats in the community, doing the person-to-person work that will create the Big Blue Wave!
A huge thanks to Live Nation for inviting us to participate and talk to thousands of voters.
