H i Fellow Dems!

I hope that you are enjoying the new year and achieving all the goals you have set for yourself. January is setting the course for the entire year, and 2020 is looking bright with plenty of opportunities to get involved and channel your despair into picking the perfect pair, of Democratic candidates that is. The most exciting news I can share is that the Presidential Preference Primary Convention will be held in Tulsa this year, check out how to become a delegate and other volunteer opportunities below. Remember everyone always feels better when they are contributing to something bigger than themselves, so don't forget to set up your reoccurring donation today.

Democratically yours,
