Our new door hangers and postcards arrive tomorrow and we’re looking for volunteers to get these out to voters. If you’ve already signed up for a walk shift or postcard packets, we’ll be in touch over the next day or two as packets are assembled and made available for pickup. If you have not signed up, please do so quickly so we can work through this batch. 
Also, on Sunday, July 24, we’ll be setting up a voter registration station in Pepper Pike and will need help to cover at least an hour or two of the three-hour shift from 11 a.m – 2 p.m.

Thursday, August 4 – 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Orange Library, 31975 Chagrin Blvd, Pepper Pike

Join the Chagrin Gateway Democrats for our first in-person meeting of the 2022 cycle. “Fight for Your Rights Action Night” will feature speakers from local organizations working to protect and defend reproductive and health care rights, voters rights and gun safety rights.
This is more than just a collection of speakers. While we listen, we’ll be writing postcards to voters in our club area…maximizing every minute of the evening. Bring yourself and some friends and let’s get to work and fight for your rights!
