Engage the Central Vally’s Rising Electorate! Thursday, September 16th, at 5pm PT


All donations matched up to a total of $7,000!


No matter our race, background, or zip code, most of us believe that for democracy to work for all of us, it must include us all. That’s why we are raising money for local groups that are registering under-represented voters in the Kern, Tulare and Kings counties (CA-21’s region). Ongoing work through November, 2022 can register and rally enough young people and people of color to flip that region Blue!

 Help us reach our $20,000 goal by donating now and attending this event on Thursday. The money supports seven organizations’ voter registration efforts (Kings Dems, Kern Dems, Fresno Dems, Kings Black Lives Matters, Women United, Lutheran Church Caruthers and Field Team 6) through December, 2021.  It features Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers and an inspirational life-long activist, Jewell Hurtado, a member of the rising electorate, and TJ Cox, former Congressman from CA-21.

Workshop: Help Voters Find Their Motivation!

Wednesday, September 22nd at 4:30pm PT


Democracy works best when we all participate. Let’s learn how to engage with people who rarely vote and help them find their reasons to participate. Skills you’ll learn in this workshop are based on counseling techniques for behavior change.  Learn how your curiosity and compassion can lead to meaningful conversations with high-potential voters. We recommend this workshop for everyone, new or experienced!
