Dear Fellow Democrat,
The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade means that abortion is no longer federally protected, and Gov. DeSantis is now free to outlaw abortion completely in Florida if he chooses.
I know that Democrats in Charlotte County are feeling so many different emotions in response to the horrible Supreme Court decision. I am furious that a woman’s right has been taken away, yet I am laser focused on electing Democrats in November and stopping extremists from dictating how we live.
The only way to do this is to win political power. Those of us who believe that the right of women to make decisions about their lives should be constitutionally protected need to work to elect politicians who agree with us.
All eyes will be on the November election to see if Democrats have what it takes to meet this moment. This is our moment to show the GOP that we won’t let them take away our freedoms. But we need volunteers and funding to reach thousands of Charlotte County Democrat and Independent voters.
Yes, I’m mad, but I’m fighting mad. In moments like these, it’s more important than ever that we remember why we’re in this fight.
Thank you for stepping up.
Chair, Charlotte County Democratic Party
