In the wake of the inauguration on Friday, January 20th, followed on Saturday by marches in Washington and throughout the country in support of the rights of women and resistance to the policies of Donald Trump, the Windsor/North County Democratic Club will meet on Thursday, January 26 at 7 p.m. at the Windsor Round Table Pizza, 8499 Old Redwood Hwy. Speakers from a variety of political action groups will give presentations on the topic “Taking Action in the Time of Trump,” focusing on ways to resist the agenda of the incoming administration.
Speakers from these organizations will be featured:
- Indivisible has been created by former Congressional staffers who have written “A Practical Guide for Resisting Trump,” which outlines the tactics that were used by the Tea Party to obstruct President Obama and how these same tactics can be used to obstruct Trump.
- Our Revolution is another newly formed national organization which has grown from the Senator Bernie Sander’s campaign. Our Revolution’s mission is to inspire and recruit a new generation of leaders and to provide them with support in campaigns for offices from school boards on up.
- Organizing for Action grew from the Obama for America campaign team after the 2012 reelection. Following November’s election OFA has done phone banking in support of the Affordable Care Act.
- The Political Organizing Committee is the political action arm of the Sonoma County Democratic Party, focusing on a variety of activities, including voter outreach and registration.
