FIGHTING ANTI-TRUTH BILLS IN SC LEGISLATUREWith the SC State Legislature currently in session, many Republicans have been pushing anti-truth bills in an attempt to control and distort our education process. There is an organized movement to defeat these bills on the committee level, as Republicans lack a solid consensus. However, to ensure that these anti-truth bills fail, we need people to flood the public comments.

Please visit and to make your voice heard and ensure that truth prevails in South Carolina!

HELP SUPPORT CCDPSupporters like you allow us to keep the CCDP office open, train and support candidates and fund events in the Lowcountry. Please consider donating so that we can continue these efforts. With the 2022 election just months away, it is more important than ever to make sure we have the resources we need to succeed!
