Trump is our next president. now what?
Even though he lost the popular vote by nearly 3,000,000 votes, the Electoral College confirmed Donald Trump as the victor in the 2016 presidential election on December 19. After Obama was elected in 2008, the Republican Party turned their attention to State Gubernatorial & Legislative seats, City Council, and School Board positions across the country, the purpose of which was to build infrastructure in advance of the next presidential elections.
The Clark County Democrats, after all 6 official local Democratic organizations elected new boards, are committed to moving forward over the next four years in the most ethical and responsible way possible while helping to build a potent progressive movement that will win our local races!
This is how you can help
The Clark County Democrats meet every second Monday of each month. We would be delighted for you to join us as we discuss next steps, set up campaign, candidate, & activist trainings, and support some of our great progressive candidates both new and old! If we want to win, we need your energy and passion.
Clark County is also split up into three main "Legislative Districts", or "LDs", that also have Democratic organizations that meet separately each month. Check out our calendar of events and get involved with your LD organization as well! You can also keep up with opportunities to get involved by following our official Facebook page, where both upcoming events and local political news is shared.
If you don't want to get involved with the Democratic Party, we understand that that's not the only way to make a difference. Here are some other ways that you can get involved:
- Repeated respectful dialogue with people whom one fundamentally disagrees with is one of the most effective ways to convince someone that you're right. Make a friend whose politically right-of-center, and really try to understand where they're coming from, and many of them will do the same for you. You may be surprised how positive of an impact this can have on both local and national discourse.
- Get involved with a local chapter of an advocacy organization, such as the Sierra Club, Planned Parenthood, or the Labor Round Table.
- Go to a local public City Council, County Council, or Port meeting, and make sure our elected officials hear from YOU!
