On January 6th, 2021, Congressman Morgan Griffith failed to defend our country against domestic enemies and voted to subvert and obstruct the will of the electorate of the United States of America, in a free and fair election. He signed on to the Texas lawsuit which asked the Supreme Court to overturn the results of that election in four other states. He does not represent us and is not fit for office.

MCDC DEMOCRACY BRIGADE

Rapid Response Team Reacting to Breaking News and Countering Misinformation with Truth and Facts

Democrats know that nothing less than the future of our democracy is at stake. Supreme Court decisions, votes on major legislation, actions by extremist groups, and other consequential developments all require constant vigilance and our readiness to retaliate with a coordinated response.

Join our Democracy Brigade by emailing Gretchen Distler at gdistler@comcast.net

Receive alerts from the MCDC Outreach Committee about ways in which ​you can help us take prompt, positive action, including:

  • Contacting your representatives and writing letters to the editor — we’ll provide scripts and templates for you to use.
  • Participating in demonstrations — you’ll be notified about when and where these events are taking place.
  • Posting relevant information on social media.
  • Follow and comment on other’s social media accounts.

In addition, we encourage you to take part in these ongoing MCDC activities (sign up using our Volunteer Form):

  • Registering voters — no training necessary in most cases.
  • Working at MCDC booths at local festivals and other events.
  • Helping with fundraising events
  • Greeting voters at the polls.

By showing our collective strength, we will prevail!

We Democrats believe that America is still the country of fair play, that we can come out of a small town or a poor neighborhood and have the same chance as anyone else.
