These shirts (as can be seen above) include limited-edition baseball jerseys that honor President Biden and Vice President Harris on the back. They will ONLY be available for pre-order until March 15, so be sure to order yours now before they are gone! Additionally, we have a new Charleston Democrat shirt printed by the Turning Leaf Project in Charleston.

LEADERSHIP IN CCDP & PENINSULA DEMOCRATS
As we mentioned in our county meeting last month, the Charleston County Democratic Party is choosing new leadership in March. We wanted to remind people interested in running for Chair of the party that the nominating committee is currently accepting nominations, especially given that our current Chair Colleen Condon is not running for reelection. If interested, please email Ben Pogue at email@example.com.
Additionally, the Charleston Peninsula Democrats are accepting nominations for the club’s 2021-2022 leadership team! If you or someone you know is looking to make a difference and has one hour per week to give towards community outreach to elect Democrats, this is the volunteer position for you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
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.

|MON MAR 01 6 PM LWV Good Governance Symposium Series Session 1: |
Voting RightsThe League of Women Voters is holding its inaugural Good Governance Symposium Series to encourage thoughtful non-partisan discussion of public policy issues and topics. This series will promote education and awareness relating to critical good government issues that impact national, state and local governance through five sessions. Each session will include accompanying “pre-reading” materials and will end with a “Call to Action” to advocate for state and federal legislation to help address these critical issues.
The first session is on voting rights. This important first session will lay the stage for the entire series. We will explore the history of the Voting Rights Act, attempts to dismantle the legislation, including the impacts of Shelby County v. Holder (2013), recent voting restrictions and solutions to move forward and ensure every person has a voice.

MARCH NAVIGATION CENTER MEAL SERVICE
We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help us serve a meal at the Navigation Center on Thursday, March 3rd. For those who don’t know, on the first Thursday of every month (this means 3/4/21), the CCDP supports the Navigation Center to help feed our neighbors. We need your help to make this event run smoothly! We need:
- 1-2 people to provide some sort of dessert (like cookies!) for around 50-60 people. The address of where to drop off the dessert will be provided closer to the event.
- 2 more people to help serve the food and clean up afterward (around 4:15-5:45pm)
Please sign up HERE if you are interested in helping out! And, as always, please mask up, wash your hands, and maintain social distance throughout the entire event.
As mentioned above, please support CCDP (and help elect Democrats) by buying one of our brand new t-shirts! We also have water bottles, Koozies, bags, and pint glasses!
