YCDP – April 2020 Newsletter

Navigating these uncertain times can leave us feeling isolated.  Keeping in touch with friends and neighbors has been relegated to phone calls and online communications. We are inundated with conflicting information and images that result in more fear.

In any situation, there is always a silver lining. Looking for the positive during our lifetime’s most unprecedented, unsettling experience is crucial to our mental survival. Humans are resourceful, inventive, and compassionate. That adversity breeds creativity is evident everywhere these days. From our local restaurants offering free delivery and curbside pick-up to virtual book clubs, we have found ways to stay connected.
 
YCDP still working to support our state and local Democratic candidates, reach out to voters and keep you abreast of issues you care about.  

We ask that you let us know how we can be of further service and if you feel the call to help we would deeply appreciate it.
To keep out volunteers and the public safe we closed the YCDP office on March 8th until further.

Contact us anytime at info@yavdem.org

We Are Here… for You.

We thank them for this concise and helpful information!


YCDP’s own Marion Pack, is stuck in India. She was due to return to the US on April 13, but the entire country is in lockdown. She is staying in a little closed hotel and receiving care packages of food from her local friends. Apparently the US will be sending charter flights to retrieve Americans stranded out of the country, so we are putting together an effort to inform all those who know and love Marion to please contact our senators and representative to secure her a safe flight home. The more pressure they feel, the more likely it is that they will respond.

Please show Marion how much we miss her and hope she returns to the US soon!
