Dear DemCast,

We are all hurting. And if there is one thing we know, taking action is good for the soul! Please make a plan to join a Wear Orange Rally this weekend.  We are not going to stop talking about the need for Gun Violence Prevention laws and attitudes! Brady has a new form to send emails and make calls to your Senators to expand & strengthen Brady Background Checks. Please pass this around out of state.

There will be a call for Moral Revival at this week’s Friday Power Lunch.  Rev Liz will talk about the Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls on June 18, 2022.  Be sure to join us this Friday and mark your calendar for June 18, 2022 to be with us in DC.

Heaven knows we could use some uplift! We are very excited that our fabulous women Congressional Members, Rep Jennifer Wexton and Rep Abigail Spanberger will kick off the 6th Annual Women’s Summit ALL IN to Win Virginia in Annandale, June 25, 2022.   The ALL IN to Win Virginia Summit will be a summer of determination and action. There are LOTS of reasons we NEED YOU with us. We need your energy and ideas. We need an army of good people standing together to fight for our values. And last, but not least, we don’t want you to miss the fun. Please get your tickets now to be part of the in-person events and on-line community building to prepare for the Long Game.  To launch our time together and remind us why we are there, Tammarrah Addison, Spoken Word Poet will recite her poem The Long Game.

Hope to see you this weekend wearing orange!
