Trump-backed U.S. Senate candidate JD Vance recently suggested that victims of domestic violence should stay in bad marriages. His comments, from an appearance last fall in California, were first reported by VICE and come weeks after another incident where Vance compared abortion to slavery.
Vance is in a tight race against Democratic Congressman Tim Ryan this fall.


Our latest door hangers and postcards are in and already making a difference. New volunteers and supporters are reaching out to learn more about the Democratic ticket and asking how they can get involved in this critical election cycle. We have thousands of doors and mailboxes to hit in the next few weeks. Can you help by writing postcards or walking on your own schedule with door hangers? Join us this week!

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!


The Chagrin Gateway Democrats mourn the passing of Debi Samad Thomas, a lifetime activist and champion of progressive causes. Debi worked tirelessly for good through issues-based groups such as Patriots for Change and by supporting local candidates through the Chagrin Falls Democrats, the Chagrin Gateway Democrats, as a member of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Executive Committee and as an elected member of the county party Central Committee. Her advice and counsel, committment to justice, patriotism and friendship will be truly missed. Please join us in sending sympathy and thoughts to Debi’s husband, Stephen, her daughters Stephanie and Emilee, and their entire family.
