I hope you’ll take a minute to read what this team made possible
Oct 6, 2021
Earlier this year, the DNC announced that we’re investing $20 million in the grassroots, $23 million in our state parties, and $25 million in protecting the right to vote. Now, that’s a lot of millions -- so I hope you’ll give me a minute to explain exactly why I am fired up about these investments. Here is just some of what we’re up to:
Organizing in all 50 states, territories, and D.C.: We’ve got to be hungry if we want to protect and expand on our majorities in 2022. That’s why the DNC is investing in embedding voter protection and organizing staff in key states like Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Protecting the right to vote: Thanks to the GOP, the battle in 2022 is not just over who we vote for, but whether we can vote at all. That’s why this year we’re launching our biggest voter protection program ever to educate, register, mobilize, and protect voters.
Growing local talent: We want folks who know their communities best to be on the frontlines in the upcoming elections. We’re building on the talent pipelines we started last cycle -- both building at the entry level and moving diverse, local talent up the organization to develop the next generation of campaign leadership.
Taking the fight to Republicans: Turning red states blue doesn’t happen by accident. That’s why we’re making a seven-figure investment in predominantly Republican-led states through the Red State Fund to put the GOP on defense.
We’ve got big plans here at the DNC, and if enough people on this grassroots team come forward to support this work, I know that we’ll come out on top come Election Day 2022.
. . .Thank you for being a part of this. Let’s get to work!
