Dear Fellow DNC Member,
We're excited to announce Dems For You, a new service-based initiative, and to ask you to join us in participating and leading this initiative, starting this holiday season.
The mission of the new Democratic National Committee is to elect Democrats from the school board to the Oval Office. As a party, we must focus on demonstrating to Americans our core values every day, all across the country in a visible, action-oriented manner. We can no longer be just a political organization asking for votes every two or four years; we have to get back to our origins as a grassroots organization, together, helping to address the issues and problems faced by all Americans. It’s our job as leaders to champion our party’s values. We know that no bumper sticker slogan is going to fix the mess our country is in. People will. In every community and every day.
To support these efforts, the DNC is launching a new service-based initiative called Dems For You. When a hurricane hits in Texas, Florida, the Virgin Islands, or Puerto Rico; when wildfires ravage California or Colorado; when families need food, clothing, or toys during the holiday season; when young adults are looking for help on job interviews and crafting a resume; when families want to purchase their first home or need assistance signing up for a healthcare plan, the Democratic Party through Dems For You will be there to support all of our communities because Every ZIP Code Counts.
Today, we’re launching Dems For You, and we need your help in several ways over the coming weeks:
Organize a service event over the holiday season: support wildfire or hurricane victims, volunteer at a soup kitchen or food bank, organize a clothing drive, etc. Attend an event yourself, recruit elected officials you work with to attend or work with other democratic groups or allied organizations. Let us know what you’re doing, by entering your event here by Tuesday, December 19th.
Take action online:
Spread the word with #DemsForYou via social media or email about efforts to support hurricane or wildfire victims or other people in need in your community.
Share our Dems For You social media posts and graphics to encourage activists to get involved.
Send an email announcement to your list about Dems For You.
We know that many of you are already leading service events this December. Our goal is to help lift up that work to help you reach even more members of your community.
Any questions, ideas, feedback, reach out to Ryan Doyle DoyleR@dnc.org or Kalen Pruss PrussK@dnc.org
Thanks for everything you do,
Tom and Jaime
Tom Perez, Chair, Democratic National Committee
Jaime Harrison, Associate Chair and Senior Counselor, Democratic National Committee

Democrats are getting to work to give back and make our neighborhoods, towns, and cities a better place — in every community, every day. That’s why we’re asking you to join us in acts of service around our communities. Let us know you’re in, and tag a friend you’re bringing with you in the comments.
