SCDP CONVENTION UPDATE

This year’s South Carolina Democratic Party Convention will be a virtual event streamed live on Facebook at 10:00 AM on Saturday, June 6. All Democrats in South Carolina are invited to join in the live stream. If you are a delegate or an alternate to the state convention, you will need to cast your relevant votes in advance on June 1 & 2 (for DNC members and congressional district delegates to the national convention) and June 4 & 5 (other national delegate slots, votes on rules and resolutions and any necessary runoffs for DNC members). Delegates may choose to vote by email or by phone. It is important to note that if you wish to vote by email, you will need to register to do so by 10:00 pm on Saturday, May 30. You do not need to register to vote by phone.

All delegates and alternates should have received an email and/or a letter with detailed information about the convention and instructions on how to register. If you are a state delegate or alternate and you have not received one of these communications, please call the state party office at 803-799-7798.

Volunteer for the Shifa Clinic in Mt. Pleasant

The Shifa Clinic located in Mount Pleasant was established by the Islamic Circle of North America Relief and is a member of the SC Free Clinic Association. Shifa Clinic provides advanced Gynecological and Primary health care to residents in the Lowcountry as well as an on-site dispensary and food pantry. Free services are available to anyone between the ages of 19 and 64, with no health insurance, and income within 250% of the Federal poverty level based on the number of people in their household. During the COVID-19 pandemic, instead of coming in-person, the clinic is providing a food doorstep delivery drop-off service to those in need.

They need volunteers to help sort produce and fill bags as well as drivers to make the deliveries.


Let’s Send Lindsey Graham Home!

In case you missed it, Jaime Harrison just outraised Lindsey Graham by nearly $2 million last quarter and set a new fundraising record in the process. Polling has shown him within the margin of error in his race to unseat Lindsey, but he can only win if Charleston County can deliver the votes he needs. Can you help us get out the vote in the fastest growing blue county in South Carolina?
