The San Diego County Democratic Party has launched a Digital Activism 101 training series to give volunteers, activists, and organizers more skills and tools to campaign online. The series will be divided into three weekly sessions on Zoom, with participants free to attend any or all of them. The trainings are designed to get more San Diego County Democrats ready to take digital action to elect our candidates up and down the ballot this year:
East County Democrats invite you to attend a virtual conversation with Christine Pelosi, author of The Nancy Pelosi Way, Chair of the California Democratic Party Women’s Caucus, and member of the DNC.
Year after year, the San Diego County Democratic Party has offered currently enrolled and recently graduated students the chance to participate in our Political Organizing Academy. The program will be continuing in the fall of this year, remotely as needed until stay-at-home orders are lifted.
The San Diego County Democratic Party's organizing work is year-round and volunteer-driven. If you're not already involved, this is a great time to sign up to help -- from voter registration and office support to recruiting and coordinating other volunteers to build our team! SIgn up here.
Building on the historic victories of the 2018 "blue wave," the San Diego County Democratic Party emerged triumphant in the March 3 primary election, with its favored candidates winning or continuing to a runoff in a staggering 94% of the races where the Party took a position. This election set a record for the most votes ever cast in a primary in San Diego County. Turnout reached 49%, surpassing the nearly 40% turnout in the 2018 primary, which heralded the "blue wave" of November that year.
As a precaution due to the coronavirus outbreak, the San Diego County Democratic Party is temporarily no longer operating from our office in Kearny Mesa. We're joining organizations around the world in adopting distancing practices that will help protect public health. However, our office staff are working remotely. For assistance, please email email@example.com or call (858) 218-6998. We will soon be announcing new options for volunteering, training, and community engagement that will enable our core organizing work to continue.
