December is Here! Kate’s Holiday Party & More.

Dear Democrats,

Yesterday, Speaker Pelosi announced that House Democrats will begin drafting articles of impeachment. As the Democrats in the House take on this critical fight, we have to be ready to do our part. Be sure that you work with your local Democratic town or ward committee to organize, whether that is making plans to knock on doors and phone banking for Democrats or coordinating efforts within your community to write letters to the editor.

If you’re not involved with your town or ward committee, take a look through the dispatch and see if they’re hosting a holiday party or holding a December meeting. This is a great way to meet and connect with local activists! If you’re already a part of your town or ward committee, take your holiday party/December meeting as an opportunity to recruit new members from your social circles, neighborhood, or other organizations!

The work we do in these next few months will be absolutely crucial to winning in November. Make sure you and your community have an action plan ready to go for 2020!

Sincerely,

Patrick Coyne
Communications Manager, Massachusetts Democratic Party

 

Ideas for Committees: Host a Holiday Party!

Many committees are holding holiday parties to bring together members, raise funds for their work, celebrate the efforts of activists, hear from elected officials, and strategize for 2020. The Dispatch currently has holiday parties that are hosted by the Western MA Young Dems and these town and ward committees: Acton-Boxborough, Ashland, Bedford, Boston Ward 4, Bourne/Sandwich, Bridgewater, Cambridge, Chatham, CIDC/Dennis, Clinton, Framingham, Harwich, Lawrence, Mansfield, Medway, Natick, Sudbury, Wayland, Westborough, Wilmington, and Worcester. If your committee isn’t already planning an end-of-year holiday party, considering holding one! A seasonal event like this is also a great opportunity to partner with neighboring committees to build connections and draw a larger crowd! If your committee is holding an event, be sure to send it into events@massdems.org so we can promote it in the Dispatch!
