Call to Action!

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

We had the most fantastic Zoom meeting on Tuesday night with the amazing Congresswoman Katie Porter. I will send a newsletter about that in a few days but in the meantime, we have a Call to Action and I wanted to get this out to you ASAP:
In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, some of our members have been involved in grassroots efforts to help those most in need in Orange County. If you would like to be a part of these efforts, there are 2 supply chains you can be a part of. Both efforts will likely continue through June, if not beyond.
  • There are more unhoused and unsheltered people in Orange County now than there were before the outbreak. We are asking for supplies for courageous volunteers making rounds to unsheltered individuals, and those who are in shelter but without food. Most needed supplies include: protein bars, gatorade, wet wipes in small packs (any kind), first aid gauze pads, prepackaged single antibiotic wipes. Supplies can be delivered or dropped to the front porch c/o Lita Robinow, 6 Brisbane Way, Irvine, CA 92612. 714-293-2181 (If you are dropping to the front porch, leave it inside the walk near the bench or in that area between 9 am and 8 pm. Don't mind the barking dog and wave hello!)

  • People with sewing skills, Making Masks Central OC has been providing volunteer-made masks for medical and other front line workers, as well as high-risk populations. They have materials that can be picked up at several locations. Contact Julie Tapp, julietapp1@gmail.com to request to sew or for additional information (you can find the group on facebook as well).

NEXT TUESDAY BRINGS US....KATIE PORTER!

ear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

Our "new normal" of sheltering in place can get a little tedious and I have to admit there are days when choosing between taking a walk and cooking as my most exciting activities does get a little old. But being a member of DemOC PAC keeps it interesting. On Tuesday night, we had a fantastic meeting with Congressman Mike Levin. As always, he was articulate, smart and so informative...we talked about COVID-19, the bailout monies, the deficit and national debt ($30 trillion??), testing, and the USPS (Gerry Connolly from Virginia has always been a strong advocate).

Next Tuesday, our guest is a local rockstar....on any day you can find her on one of the shows on MSNBC, CNN and she was recently featured on Samantha Bee!

We are so excited to be joined by
Congresswoman Katie Porter!!
Tuesday, April 21
6 pm

ZOOM info to follow.

There will be a Q&A following.

We look forward to seeing you Tuesday!

April 14 @ 5pm meeting w/Mike Levin!

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

I hope you are all well and taking good care of yourselves during a time like we have never seen. Who thought we would be in the midst of a pandemic; each day brings some sadness, some surprise and some new challenge or newly discovered interest. And there are so many kindnesses as well. I am heartened by the many things people are willing to do for one another during this time of great need and stress. Please, I said this last time, reach out to this email for anything. We are happy to talk, shop, bring you food, books, puzzles or just answer a question or keep you company. Last week I was able to write notes to a few members, share a puzzle and books and some emails I received about small business. Those small gestures helped me as much as they did the people who reached out to me! So please, be in touch!

And without further adieu....now for the PAC news!
Our first Zoom meeting is coming right up!

We are lucky enough to be joined by
Congressman Mike Levin!!
