JUMPING INTO THE NEW YEAR
We hope that everyone is having a happy holiday season and staying healthy! We want to thank everyone who participated in our donation drives. It is such an important part of CCDP to give back to the community, and all of the amazing participation we had has made that possible.
Tomorrow is the last day of 2020. We know it has been a tough year, but we have so much to look forward to in 2021, including the inauguration of the amazing new President and Vice President of the US, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, on January 20th. However, before we get to that, we will see our neighbors to the south, Georgia, have TWO Senate special elections on January 5th (just 6 days away!). We have discussed these elections in previous newsletters, but with them being right around the corner now, please consider doing whatever you can to help, such as phone banking! You can find more information through the button below or in the “Take Action” section.
All meetings until further notice will be conducted “virtually” using Zoom. You can connect by computer or telephone. We will continue to use MobilizeAmerica to RSVP.
|Virtual Coffee with Colleen|
Join Charleston County Democratic Party chair Colleen Condon and fellow Democrats for a cup of coffee and great conversation. No specific topics. We have been meeting for 13 years and do not want to give it up, so it will be on Zoom until further notice. Virtual Event (by computer or phone)

|Book Discussion: Our Time Is Now by Stacey Abrams|
Join the Charleston County Democratic Party on January 31st at 4 PM via Zoom for a discussion of Our Time Is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America, by Stacey Abrams. She has been laying the groundwork for this moment in Georgia for the last 10 years! In the book, Abrams offers her blueprint to end voter suppression, empower citizens and ensure the most popular candidates win. We will discuss the book and share ideas for how we can continue building our momentum here in Charleston County in 2021! The Meeting ID/password will follow.

HOW TO HELP IN GEORGIA
Flipping the Georgia Senate seats is absolutely CRUCIAL to getting any of president-elect Joe Biden’s agenda done when he’s in office. Without control of the Senate, Mitch McConnell will still be the madman at the wheel and will pull every dirty trick he can to roadblock, obstruct, and derail everything that we worked so hard for.

HAND SANITIZER CONTAINERS COLLECTION & #DEMOCRATSCARE
CCDP is looking to collect empty gallon jugs to fill with hand sanitizer for Charleston County teachers. We are looking for clean, clear, gallon-sized jugs. If you have any water or tea jugs that fit this description, please hang on to them and check our newsletter next week for our new office hours.
We also have created a #DemocratsCare ActBlue page. The donations would go to fund all of these “give back” initiatives in general. The link is actblue.com/donate/democratscare.
