General Meeting Agenda
Our guest speaker, Toni Denis, will present and respond to questions about the New Jail Project. Her career as a journalist includes working for newspapers, magazines, and websites. As a political activist, she has served as chair of a county Democratic party and as a board member of a state political organization. You may want to check out the No New Jail Facebook group before the meeting.
In addition to Toni’s presentation, we will hold a remembrance of the 75-year anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.

PBS has a special “John Lewis–Get in the Way” along with some other related short clips. Also see CNN’s documentary “John Lewis: Good Trouble“. The death of John Lewis brings to the forefront that this is definitely a time for us as a country to reflect on where we are and where we’ve come from.

Racial Equity – What does it mean?
Racial Equity is about applying justice and a little bit of common sense to a system that has been out of balance. When a system has been out of balance, people of color are the most affected. An imbalanced system makes all of of us pay. Click HERE to read more about Racial Equity and where the Arizona Candidates stand. Or go to https://prescottindivisible.org/ and click on “Blog“.
BLACK LIVES MATTER
“I have said this before, and I will say it again. The vote is precious. It is almost sacred. It is the most powerful-non-violent tool we have in a democracy.”~John Lewis, June 2019

IF NOT US, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?*99 days to the presidential election
Our endorsed candidates, Judy Stahl and John Lutes, are campaigning under incredibly difficult circumstances. They will be our voice for change in the Arizona State House and in Yavapai County.
They need our voices on the PHONES NOW! Every vote for Judy and John is a vote for Joe Biden and Mark Kelly too!

Volunteer to support a different campaign each week! The Ferris Wheel Project is a weekly rotating phone bank sponsored by the Yavapai County Democratic Party. Click the image below to volunteer online (or email Madison Lisle at email@example.com
If you are a first time phone banker, or you need a refresher, all the phone banks have training. Also, a bit of good news, more people are willing to talk because they are home so much. That is one of the very few good things to come out of the COVID pandemic.
