Dear CDP community,
You can help by pledging just a fraction of that: if just three people reading this pledge to volunteer just twice a month, we’ve exceeded our goal!***
Pledge today. It’s painless and exhilarating 🙂
- Phonebanking victory! Our volunteers have phonebanked their way to the end of our phone list–and the outreach has really paid off. Take our newest member, Jahneah: We met a passionate and bright student, Rio, while doing street outreach, and when we went to meet with him again, he brought along Jahneah, his mentor.
Jahneah: “I’m excited to work with CDP because it gives me the support to put the power back into the hands of the people of my city. Many people dont realize that we are the government and end up giving up the responsibility and power that comes with voice, and CDP is something that’ll help me help my city to be heard again.”
- The initiative is live: We continue to grapple with suggestions from community allies about how the Democratic Budgeting Program initiative can best represent and serve all constituencies. Thanks to all who have provided feedback.
- Strategy, strategy, strategy: We’re having our second meeting with Nicole Derse, a campaign strategist who ran the Obama campaign in Wisconsin and is graciously helping us launch an awesome, well-organized grassroots campaign. Thanks, Nicole!
