PA Democratic Party plan

Email sent to me by the PA Dems outlining their plans as an opposition party.

In the past month, we’ve been receiving an almost endless supply of emails from Democrats across the Commonwealth - many asking what the party plans to do to oppose President-elect Trump’s inflammatory hate speech, ill-informed agenda, and extreme cabinet nominations.
To answer our supporters…we do have a plan. It’s quite simple:

We will oppose any policy that works against the values for which Democrats stand; and we will oppose any policy that excludes Americans based on traits like ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, or sexual orientation.

Contribute today to send a clear message that you expect our elected officials to be accountable to the people, not to Trump’s corporate interests.

And we don’t stop there. We will knock on doors - taking issues off the television where the media controls the spin and bringing them directly into the living rooms of our neighbors where they hit home the most. We will use all the tools at our disposal to make sure your voice is heard.

Above all else, we will listen to you and other Democratic supporters throughout the Commonwealth, and engage you on important issues every step of the way.

Those who have already offered help have gotten plugged-in to our volunteer corps, which is currently making phone calls, writing letters, and holding events in opposition to Trump’s hateful rhetoric and his cabinet nominations. That group will continue to expand as we move into 2017 and work to support candidates in municipalities across the Commonwealth - even at the most local levels where Republicans have previously run unopposed.

But for all that to happen we need your help.

Contribute now, and help us mobilize supporters ahead of the broad sweeping changes we know Trump plans to make within days of taking office.


Thank you for all that you do for the Democratic Party and for Pennsylvania. We’ll see you in 2017!

It's a good plan and a good place to start. The option has always been there to contribute to the state, rather than national, Dem party. Groen was the Montgomery County Dem chair and did very good work there, so he's got the experience and knowledge for the job.
