Why are we RI$ING & ORGANIZING? To preserve our Democracy!

  • In 2021 some of the most irresponsible legislature ever has been passed to restrict voting rights in 17 Republican states, including Florida. Sadly, the conservative U.S. Supreme Court approved voter identification laws which supports this legislature.
  • The US Congress has not passed the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
  • Too many states, such as Texas, with Florida soon to follow, are passing legislation to deny a woman’s access to an abortion.
  • We are facing the worst public health crisis in the past 100 years and Governor DeSantis is enforcing his beliefs against masks and vaccines on our citizens, hiring a new anti-vaxxer, anti-mask Surgeon General.

These are just a few of the reasons we are asking you to support the efforts of the Charlotte County Democratic Party to help us and our candidates have the resources needed to win in November 2022 and beyond.
