The Washtenaw Dems are continuing to build and strengthen our local Democratic community by offering an annual Community Partnership to any individual, family, business, or organization. Community Partners will help sustain the WCDP all year, every year. Learn how you can become a Community Partner here.
The WCDP has recently made a special, limited-time offer to local candidates to help us get this new initiative off the ground. We appreciate the support of these founding partners and have recognized their contributions on our Community Partners page. (Please note that these are not endorsements from the WCDP and that this opportunity was offered to all registered Democratic candidates in Washtenaw County.)
Take Action on Unemployment
Hundreds of thousands of Michiganders have barely been able to stay afloat only due to Federal money from the CARES act. But as the CARES act begins to expire for many unemployed workers, our state GOP seems content to let families drop off a cliff into devastating hardship. There are two bill packages waiting to address this problem, but do-nothing Republicans are ignoring them. Read more about these bill packages and what you can do to urge our state government to take action.
The Voter Guide Fund
The WCDP Voter Guides have been an important part of voters’ decision-making process in past elections, but there is a chance that these guides won’t exist this year without your help. If you want to make sure voters are informed and motivated, contribute here or learn more about the importance of these guides here.
