The Los Angeles County Democratic Party is leading the charge to harness the outpouring of energy and activism that has come alive, and channeling it into action to stem the tide and protect our future. From affordable healthcare, to protecting immigrant families and LGBT rights, to preserving the safety net for the poor, to the inclusion and enfranchisement of people of color and religious minorities, women’s health choices, and protections for working families and middle class jobs, everything that progressives hold dear is in the line of fire – and we must not sit idly by in this time of crisis.

We need your help to support our organizing and voter registration drives, ratchet-up the pressure on Republican elected officials within our midst, elect good Democrats to office in the Spring local elections, and lay the groundwork to turnout LA’s Democratic base to ensure we maintain the Democratic Party’s successes in California in 2018.

We ask you to help LACDP mobilize the more than 2.7 million Democrats in LA County by
becoming a sponsor of this event.
