Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

´╗┐We had the most amazing meeting just two weeks ago. "Undoing Racism: Commitment to Change" was thoughtful and thought provoking and we are so grateful to our guests, Rev. Dr. Ralph Williamson, Gianna Drake Kerrison, Dr. Fred Calhoun and Kelsey Brewer. Each brought a unique story and ways for us to contribute to a more just society. The time wasn't long enough...as individuals and a group we must do the work to make the changes. I know we are committed.

Just days after before our meeting, we lost a leader, a man who is now being called a founder, a driver of the civil rights movement...the most honorable and wonderful John Lewis. I hope you were able to read his words in the New York Times that were published the day of his funeral and to hear the words of a real president, Barack Obama, when he eulogized John Lewis in a call to action.

PACTIVISM 
We had a fantastic response to our second round of postcarding to "Ditch Mitch" (Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell) and "Retire Lindsey" (S.C. Sen. Lindsey Graham)! DemOC PAC volunteers wrote about 300 postcards to voters in those states, volunteer runners distributed and picked up packets, and it all was coordinated by our tireless activism chair Julie Tapp.
