Happy early Independence Day! As we spend the weekend celebrating the ideals upon which this country was founded, it’s important to remember that the fight to live up to those ideals continues to this day.
The United States was not and is not destined to be great. It is upon each of us to ensure that everyone truly has the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. It takes vigilance, empathy, sacrifice, and of course a lot of hard work.
None of us can make everything right. But we can each do our part. And as the Democratic Party here in Santa Rosa County, we are doing our best to play our role in making this county, this state, and this country live up to its ideals.
Here’s how you can get involved.
Voter Outreach Initiative
We are continuing our efforts to connect with as many Democrats and NPAs as possible with the goal of registering voters, preparing for the 2022 elections, and learning how we can better advocate for the needs of our community. Right now this primarily involves addressing and sending postcards, and we will soon be starting to make phone calls and knock on doors as well.
If you’d like to participate in these efforts, please reply to let us know. The more volunteers we have, the more voters we can reach and the better we’ll perform in 2022.
And if you’d like to make a financial contribution to our efforts, you can do so though the following link:
Our next monthly meeting is Thursday, July 15 at 6pm. We would love for you to join us, add your input, and learn more about how you can get involved. You can register for the meeting here: https://www.mobilize.us/santarosacountydems/event/373146.
You are also welcome to attend any of our other local Democratic meetings:
The Democratic Black Caucus is meeting on Thursday, July 8 at 6pm. For more information, please contact Desi Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Democratic Women’s Club is hosting its annual Beach Picnic on Saturday July 24 at 4:30pm. The picnic is at Navarre Beach Park, Black Skimmer Pavilion and there will be good food, good company, and door prizes. Please RSVP by 7/20 to Margie Purkerson at 850-206-5884 or email@example.com.
With the Delta variant starting to spread, it’s more important than ever to get vaccinated. Everyone age 12 and up is eligible to receive a COVID vaccine and you can register and check your status at https://myvaccine.fl.gov.
