Christy Smith / Elizabeth Romero Day of Action
Our highest priority is the Christy Smith & Elizabeth Romero Day Of Action on May 9th. We need all hands on deck if we are going to win. This is our second statewide virtual day of action for Christy Smith. The first was on April 19th. Over 220 volunteers made 14,329 calls and got 1043 yeses. Our goal for the 9th is to double what we did last time. Participants will be able to choose which candidate (Christy or Elizabeth) they would like to make calls for when they sign up in Mobilize.

Virtual House Parties
House parties – whether in person or virtual - are a powerful tool to persuade, organize, motivate and activate people who support our Democratic values and want to see positive change in our communities and our nation. The success of our Democratic Party in 2020 literally depends on all of us reaching out to our neighbors, talking with them about the direction of this state, and getting them involved. Because of this, CADEM has set the goal of 1,000 house parties by August 31st. We know that in order to win up and down the ballot, we need to invite friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues to get involved. House parties are the perfect tool for making those connections.
An organized house party utilizes the power of our natural social networks and our own stories to energize people who are already active and to persuade & motivate people who are hungry for change but have not yet found a way to be active. The key to a successful house party is sticking to the agenda and running it properly.
As the host, we ask that you focus on motivating people through values and moving them to action—not debating issues or specific policies. A house party is a chance to develop leadership and move others into action. It is not a dinner party or a cocktail party. It is a working meeting with a social component, so it is important to stay focused. Fellowship, fun and social connection are powerful tools to engage and motivate people. We are going to save the world in 2020 - together!

2020 Census Outreach
The. 2020 Census will influence individuals, communities, governments, for-profit entities, and nonprofit organizations throughout the next decade. Data obtained will inform decision makers in all sectors and lead to allocation of political power and financial resources. If the data are wrong, there will be inequitable distribution of resources for basic community needs, such as education, food and income security, health care, housing, transportation, and much more. The allocation of $1.5 trillion in federal funds hinges annually on the decennial data, including funding for state and local governments, as well as for nonprofits to deliver services to individuals
and communities. Key programs that receive funding specifically from federal grants include the National School Lunch program, Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Medicaid, Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG), Head Start, and Early Head Start.
