Virginia Democrats Announce Rapid Response Team


Hi Everyone,

Virginia Democrats united behind a strong and effective message will be a key component of victory in 2015, 2016 and beyond. Perhaps as important, we need to make sure that message is heard by as many voters as possible.

To that end, we're asking for your help in our efforts to beef up our ability to engage the media and spread Democrats' message. We're organizing a Rapid Response Team - a group of committed Democrats throughout the commonwealth with a strong social media presence, smart media skills, and a commitment to DPVA values. This Rapid Response Team will be our first line of defense when countering Republican lies and attacks and on the front lines of spreading the positive Democratic message. We will regularly develop talking points, sample social media posts, and other resources for distribution to this group. Additionally, we'll hold trainings on social media best practices and how to engage local media.

If you have media contacts, have a strong social media presence, or hope to build up either, please signup below. Also please spread the word to any other committed Virginia Democrats who may be interested.

Please click here to sign up and be a part of Democrat's rapid response team in Virginia.

Thank you for your interest. This will be an effective tool in ensuring that we are all united behind a single message and that every Democrat in Virginia has the tools for effective communication online, in print, and on air. 


Stephen Carter

DPVA Communications Director

From Toni Radler Headquarters

The event at Charol Shakeshaft and Dale Mann’s home was a huge success! Almost 90 people attended, and we raised nearly $8,000 for Toni’s campaign. Special guests were Jim Ukrop and Brian Cannon, from OneVirginia2021, who came and talked about non-partisan redistricting.  Surprise guest was Sen. Don McEachin. A big thanks to all who made this possible.

Coffee is Brewing!


Our August coffee caucus is early this month!  Delores Dunn will welcome us to her home at 8078 Cadys Wood Drive, Hanover, on Tuesday, August 4 at 7 p.m.

We look forward, too, to our September coffee on Thursday, September 10 at 10 a.m. Mary Anne Pugh will host this morning coffee at her home at 15209 Mountain Road, Montpelier.

 Do plan on coming to both these get togethers for a lively time with interesting and inspiring women from all over Hanover. 

To those who don't know, we are a growing group of Democratic women who meet monthly, sometimes in the day and sometimes at night, in the homes of volunteer hostesses at different locations around the county. Our goal is to enable as many women as possible to get to know and inspire one another. We have no formal programs, or memberships or dues.
