Hello East Dallas County Democrats! We hope y’all are having a happy holiday season filled with love and warmth. We know this year has come with change and loss, but we also have many reasons to celebrate the work we have done during this time. Let’s reflect on some of our accomplishments in 2020:
We hosted several events including the Big East Primary Forum, a Women’s Trivia Night, and a Senate Runoff Debate Forum all while adjusting to digital campaigning.
We volunteered in over 10 voter registration drives, including outreach to high school seniors and folks in assisted living who had been effected by the pandemic.
We supported Black residents during the first racial justice rallies in our cities.
Members served on a local advisory panel to facilitate transparency and hold community leaders accountable for their response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Our Branding Committee tripled our social media following and our posts regularly reach over 10,000 people after launching as the East Dallas County Democrats.
Our Members participated in weekly phone and text banks while partnering with the Texas Democratic Party & the Dallas County Democratic Party throughout the election.
Our club distributed slate cards to over 10,000 voters across 5 cities.
We recruited and developed 8 Precinct Chairs within Dallas County.
Dallas County had a 6% increase in voter turnout in this presidential election.
Biden won Dallas County with 65% of the vote!
We helped protect targeted districts to re-elect Congressman Colin Allred, Representative Victoria Neave, Representative Rhetta Bowers, and elect Democrats to every county-wide office in East Dallas County!
We’re so proud of the work that we have done to help Democrats win in 2020! That said, we have more to do in our community to ensure our government is fair, just, and inclusive for all. Many of our cities have local elections in 2021, including school board election in May and municipal elections in November. We need to stay activated and stay organized to win not only locally this year, but also statewide in the 2022 elections. That means we need you!
