    Citizen resistance is working! Together we stopped the repeal of the MI Income Tax, the AHCA, and cutting state worker pensions, because people stood up. This week the key bills concern the privatization of mental health services, and the attempt to infringe on local government’s sanctuary policies and require local police to enforce federal immigration law. WCDP makes it easy for you to take action, with weekly phonebanking opportunities. Whether you want to call other Democrats, or legislators, we have carefully crafted scripts to help you communicate.

As many of you know, the Ann Arbor Art Fair is one of the biggest events of the summer. It’s a great opportunity for us to connect with the community, and we are so excited to be representing the Washtenaw County Democratic Party at the Art Fair this year!

We always need lots of volunteers, but especially so this time around with it being such a long event (July 20-23). Please sign up for as many shifts as you are able and bring your friends and family along.

All volunteers, unless otherwise noted, will pass out brochures, chat with potential members, sell merchandise, and have a good time! You can sign up here.

Location: Booth #43 on the north side of Liberty Street, in front of Kolossos Bead Gallery

Precinct Activist / Delegate Training

Saturday, July 8th 1-5 pm

Hosted by the Washtenaw Precinct Organizing Committee and the Western Washtenaw Dems

The key to our success in 2018 and beyond will be getting voters to the polls. Democratic voters, and those voters whose values align with ours. But how do we know who they are?

We knock on doors and ask them.

The training will give shy people the practice to feel more comfortable in having political conversations with strangers, and bold people better tools to help activate more Democratic voters within your precincts.

All are welcome to attend! No experience necessary! Special strategies for rural, low density precincts!

End results? You will be able to better represent the issues your precinct cares about to the Party, you will encourage people to become more active and connected, and you will help us identify the voters to activate in election years.

Training held at:
IBEW Local 252 2730 Jackson Road, Ann Arbor

Precinct Organizing’s Listening Tour Launch Featured In Michigan Daily

POC_Listening_Tour

The Precinct Organizing Committee has been working since November on a comprehensive strategy to organize Michigan from the precinct level up. The Michigan Daily’s Jennifer Meer reported:

Washtenaw County Democrats organize to promote communication and higher voter turnout

“About 40 Washtenaw County residents gathered Sunday afternoon at the Washtenaw County Learning Resource Center for an event titled Mobilizing for Michigan: 2017 Listening Tour Launch. The event, led by the Precinct Organizing Committee of the Washtenaw County Democratic Party, aimed to organize residents from county precincts to canvass effectively and communicate better with local Democratic voters.

Catherine Daligga, a vice chair for the Precinct Organizing Committee, said the event is meant to encourage community members to listen to their neighbors, act upon their concerns and volunteer to canvass locally.”

The committee will be in touch soon with the volunteers who have signed up, with more information on “walk sheets,” scripts, and a training session. All interested are welcome to contact the committee heads, Catherine Daligga and Jane Forman, at wcdp.poc@gmail.com for more info.
