2018 Action!


Political Action

We're looking ahead to the all important 2018 mid term elections.
Wouldn't it be great to see some of these faces in the US House of Representatives? 
Let's do what we can to make it happen!

Here's our plan:
First up - January 30, 6:00 - 7:30, Southworth Library,  732 Dartmouth St, Dartmouth, MA. Please join us at this meeting!  We want your ideas and energy!

At this meeting, we'll examine a 'slate' of 20 or so candidates and races across the country.  From those, we'll choose about 5 on which to focus our efforts.  Some may be Democrats in an at risk district, others may be Democrats who are challenging a Republican incumbent, and have a real chance to 'flip' the seat.  
We will be using information from Emily's List, Swing Left, Minuteman Indivisible, and others to develop our initial 'slate' of candidates.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details.
