Dems gear up for Neighbor-to-Neighbor National Organizing Day

WASHINGTON – The Democratic National Committee and the National Stonewall Democrats Federal PAC are joining forces for DNC’s National “Neighbor-to-Neighbor Organizing Day” on Saturday, April 29.
The National Organizing Day events are part of a nationwide effort by Democrats across the country to reach out to their neighbors to talk about the Democratic Party’s bold vision for America based on honest leadership and real security. As part of that effort, local Stonewall volunteers will join Democrats in going door-to-door in their communities to organize and mobilize volunteers and voters.
“National Organizing Day is an important and unprecedented step to start earlier than ever to organize, mobilize, and energize our grassroots supporters and volunteers as we prepare for Democratic victories in November,” said DNC Chairman Howard Dean. “Election by election, state by state, precinct by precinct, community by community, door by door, vote by vote, Democrats are going to take this country back for the people who built it. I am delighted that the National Stonewall Democrats Federal PAC will be joining us to help make National Organizing Day a success in every American community, including the LGBT community.”
The events on April 29th are an important next step in the DNC’s State Partnership Project to help turn the vision of a permanent Democratic majority into a reality. The April event is the first of three national organizing drives that are a key part of building strong Election Day teams for 2006 and beyond.
Democrats are working in their communities to organize and mobilize volunteers and voters.
“Participating in National Organizing Day events in communities across the country is an ideal way for Stonewall chapters and members to participate in the Democratic Party’s effort to organize for victory all over the country,” said Stonewall Interim Executive Director Jo Wyrick. “By making a small effort in our hometowns on April 29, we can further a national effort that will deliver a Democratic victory in November, and substantive change that will follow Election Day.”
In addition to Organizing Day events being planned by state Democratic parties, the DNC has created online tools that allow volunteers to create their own canvassing events, invite their neighbors, and download tips, resources and door-hangers.
