Eight ways to be an active Democrat at home

  1. Stay Safe, Stay Home. The most important thing is to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Follow recommendations set by the CDC.

  2. Donate to Candidates. Democratic candidates have cancelled events and canvassing. Your contribution will make a difference. Find a list of candidates here.

  3. Call your Elected Officials. Keep calling your elected officials — from School Board to Senate — to find out what theyre working on, how you can help, and tell them what your priorities are. Find Democratic elected officials here.

  4. Join an Online Training or Virtual Phone Bank. More organizers are hosting trainings to help you get connected online. Reach out to a campaign or contact us to get started.

  5. Watch Local Government Meetings. Learn what our county, city councils and school boards are doing in response to COVID-19. Meetings are happening online, and some jurisdictions are incorporating more tools to help you participate online. 

  6. Take the Census. Fill out your census form, and encourage your friends and family to fill it out, too. For more information visit census.gov.

  7. Give Back, Volunteer. Support local small businesses by buying gift cards that you can use later. Volunteers are needed to donate food, donate blood, make masks, and more! Contact your local elected officials or Democratic club for local needs.

  8. Share News from Trusted Sources. Scams are on the rise, and plus, some Republicans are downplaying COVID-19! Keep an eye out for scams and misinformation. Official health information is available at the California Department of Public Health and CDC. Text OCCOVID19 to 888-777 for text updates from the County of Orange.

Stay safe my friends, and stay home!

In unity,

Ada Briceño
Chair, Democratic Party of Orange County

Westminster Special Election April 7


Westminster: Watch out for fake “Democratic Party” mail sent by Republicans! Rather than win on the facts, they want to confuse and lie. That’s why we say YES on the Recall. Let’s put integrity in City Hall.

Watch for your Vote-by-Mail ballot. Vote YES for Democratic Party candidates Jamison Power and Carlos Manzo.

Eviction Moratoriums
Some OC cities are taking action. Is yours?

Thank you to the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park, Costa Mesa, Irvine, Garden Grove and Santa Ana for taking steps forward for temporary eviction deferrals, to help
renters and small businesses stay in place during the COVID-19 response. If you live in any of these cities, check with your local elected officials or visit your city website for more information. Actions vary by city. 

Fullerton will consider action this Thursday, March 26, at an Emergency Meeting at 6:30 PM. Make your voice heard: Send public comments to cityclerk@cityoffullerton.com. Check our Facebook or Twitter for updates. If your city isn’t taking action yet, contact your local elected officials and ask!
