WilCo Dems Fight Back!
21 ways to fight back right now!
Here are 21 ways to stay engaged and make a difference at the local level:
1) Volunteer with the party! We will need your help to get out the vote to elect progressives to city councils and school boards this May! Sign up to be a volunteer on our website or click here to sign up as a volunteer, and watch our Facebook page and website for events.
2) Volunteer by serving on the Grassroots Committee (which regularly hosts phone banks and block walks to support our candidates and party). The Grassroots Committee is also taking on the major challenge of implementing our precinct infrastructure plan.
3) Volunteer at the Party office. Volunteer to work a regular shift to keep our party office open. This is vital to making the party more available to people. If you are interested contact Kim Gilby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4) Volunteer with your Precinct Chair: Precinct Chairs implement the parties organizing goals at the neighborhood level, and they always need help!
5) Serve on a WCDP committee: Candidate Recruitment Committee, Communications Committee, Database Committee, Events Committee, Finance Committee, Fundraising Committee, Strategic Planning Committee, Rules Committee, and Grassroots Committee.
6) Help us work booths and parades at festivals and events throughout the county. Contact Events Chair Jessica Stempko at email@example.com to volunteer with these types of events.
7) Become a Voter Registrar and register more WilCo voters. Trainings are offered at the Williamson County Inner Loop Annex Elections Department, located at 301 SE Inner Loop Ste 104, Georgetown, TX 78626. Their phone number is: (512) 943-1630. Training classes are offered the first and third Tuesday of each month at 2:00pm and 6:00pm. Please contact their office to reserve a seat by 12:00 pm on the day you wish to attend training. Class size is limited, so please be sure to reserve your spot prior to arriving for class.
8) Become a sustaining donor of the Williamson County Democratic Party. We are currently in the middle of our Annual Sustaining Donor Drive. Now is the time to sign up and renew. In 2016, we elected the first Democrat to the County Commissioners Court in 22 years! The WilCo Dems are on the move, and we plan to work hard to build on our success. Become a sustaining donor today to help us elect more Democrats in Williamson County!
What is a sustaining donor?
A sustaining donor is someone who donates at least $120 a year or $10 a month. We are encouraging people to give $20 a month to help us build towards 2020. If you have any questions, please contact our Finance Chair Kent Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
