Unhappy with Trump’s destructive agenda? TAKE ACTION NOW!

This new resource from the Hanover Democratic Committee is designed to help citizens take strategic acts that will protect our Democracy.  Watch for weekly action items here on the HDC webpage, in your inbox and on Facebook. 

Action 2:

Think about running:

Yes, Virginia, it is never too soon to lay the foundation for the next election. As disappointing as the local results of this election were, Hanover is on the cusp of change, but developing a candidacy takes time. If you have any aspiration to run for office, get involved in local civic groups to gain a track record of community service and enroll in candidate training offered by the state party. Think of it as a multi-year process and begin now.

Action 2:

Thank our candidates:

In this off-off year election Hanover had the best slate of Democratic candidates in years. Our candidates had the courage to run in tough districts, campaigned hard, and sacrificed their time to run for public office. They all ran with integrity, built a strong volunteer base and we are proud of them. Let them know you appreciate their commitment. 

Action 1:

The Congressional impeachment proceedings will begin holding public hearings this week. The transcripts of the depositions make clear that Trump extorted Ukraine for his own personal gain.

Although public opinion is swinging toward favoring impeachment, the movement to date has not been enough to change the likely votes of Republican Senators. The Center for American Progress created this video to more clearly explain Trump’s transgressions to voters. They invite supporters to share it on social media to help sway public opinion:

Also, our friends at Indivisible report that Republicans are organizing calls to members of Congress to discourage them from voting for impeachment. Indivisible is recruiting volunteers to counteract those calls. Volunteer here:
