Join us for some Memorial Day/Week Activism!

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

On this Memorial Day we are sharing with you a special opportunity to do some terrific activism...DemOC PAC has joined with several other groups through the OC Blue Wave Coalition to do postcarding. Please read below and you can sign up through the link below. Thanks so much and we hope you have had a safe and healthy weekend.

Blue Wave 2020 Postcarding Signup
We are less than 6 months away from the election. We are asking everyone who can to write postcards to Hold the House and Flip the Senate on November 3, 2020!

Round 1: Hold the House, Clean the House. We are starting our campaign now, with postcards to boost voter registration and turnout in 2 Congressional Districts to defeat Jim Jordan (Ohio) and Devin Nunes (Fresno, CA).
Round 2: Flip the Senate. We will do another batch of postcards in late June after the Kentucky and South Carolina primary elections, to help Ditch Mitch McConnell and Retire Lindsey Graham!
Round 3: Keep the OC Blue. If you aren’t already involved, we will transition to volunteering on campaigns (postcarding, phonebanking, etc.) for our OC incumbent Representatives in July.

Please sign up now at this link:
  • Your packets will include 20-30 postcards, addresses, suggested scripts, and instructions for returning your packet or having it collected.
  • We ask you to provide first class postage on each card if possible.
  • Some DemOC PAC members will be hosting postcard parties over Zoom; invitation to follow once you have signed up.
  • We will drop off packets to your house, or you can pick them up from Julie in Irvine if you prefer.
  • You will have about a week to complete your cards.
  • We will pick up the completed, stamped cards so that we can mail the cards via our contacts within Ohio and Fresno county (to get local postmarks).
Thanks again for volunteering your time to make a real difference in Holding and Cleaning the House!  
Whose house? Our house!!!
In solidarity,

Harley Rouda

First, I hope everyone is well. That is the most important thing. Every day looks pretty much the same..for me, my garden is wonderful right now, giving me constant pleasure with the roses in full bloom. At the same time, we are all stuck at home. It's gotten to the point where I look forward to packages arriving LOL. I'm so lucky one of my daughter's is here so we can grocery shop and cook together. And just think, Gov. Newsom says if the numbers stay positive we will be able to open up some of the retail economy in the coming days. Remember to wear your mask :-)

We had an amazing ZOOM meeting with Congresswoman Katie Porter a few weeks ago. She was so generous with her time and her thoughts and all who tuned in really enjoyed the time spent. We are very lucky.

We are about to be lucky for the third time.....

We will be joined by
Congressman Harley Rouda!
Tuesday, May 12

Zoom information follows. Please click on this early, as you must register for this meeting. Thanks so much!

There will be a Q&A following.

We look forward to seeing you Tuesday! As always, we are here for you. Please be in touch if you need anything including shopping, a trip to the drugstore, a chat, a mask or a new book or a puzzle. We can make it happen. Just reply to this email and let us know what you need. I promise to write back (if I miss an email please tap me on the shoulder.)

´╗┐Take good care and stay well.

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

Politics may be on the back burner of the news cycle, but the presidential election is less than 6 months away. Our work is more important than ever. Would we be prisoners in our homes, would literally thousands be dying every day (2,100 on 5/7) if Donald Trump were not president? If this pandemic had not been mishandled? If there was adequate testing?

The administration's criminal mishandling of the pandemic has made it more clear than ever that the Democrats MUST WIN the White House, the Senate and the House in November. We cannot let greed and corruption win. We can make a difference in key races with our dollars.

We need everyone to participate in this "Mayday" fundraising drive. If you have already joined, many, many thanks. We are asking you to get or give another $120 (or more) by the end of the month. Get a friend or family member to join or donate the amount again yourself if you can (in a lump sum or monthly)

If you haven't joined, what are you waiting for?
Please join now!!

Thank you so much. We are hoping to hold special  fundraising events through the summer and fall, but in the meantime, every Zoom event is special. We are grateful to be together, safe, well and that we have created such an important and meaningful community.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. We are looking forward to making more donations to candidates over the next 6 months, and to helping Democrats win in 2020!
