HONORING JUSTICE GINSBERG
Let's Honor RBG by helping her wish come true – that she not be replaced until a new president is installed. Text RBG to 50409 to tell Senators Cornyn and Cruz. You'll be asked for your name, address, and email, then sent a verification code to respond.
If you're not sure about doing that, how about volunteering to start a petition to send to Senators Cornyn and Cruz, and put them on your porch for others to sign? Use the Activist Interest Form to volunteer for this and other campaign activities.
Postcard writing gets started later this week. Send an email to be included in this effort:
Join a Williamson County Democratic Party (WCDP) phone bank. Calling isn't as bad as you think. It involves calling likely Democrats, and 90% of the time you get voice mail and just leave a message. Find a virtual training event:
No-Knock Block Walk
Put campaign material on doors in your neighborhood. Now that the weather is cooler and fitness centers are still observing restrictions, it's a good way to walk off the pandemic pounds we've gained. Use the Activist Interest Form to volunteer for this and other campaign activities.
The Club is still looking for folks who are willing to volunteer to serve on the Board. Program and Membership chairs are needed. Please step up and give back to your Club.

Sun City Democrats members host this great communication tool, which allows comments by people who request access and are accepted by page administrators. This is a major source of questions, answers, and opinions for us, as well as a good source of information provided by our members. Additionally, you can see what other groups such as Public Citizen are up to. Hone your arguing skills and learn what others are thinking.
impact (Informed Member Political Action Committee)
IMPACT is a non-connected political action committee (PAC) sponsored by the Sun City Democrats Club. A PAC is required for any group wanting to raise money for candidates seeking political office. IMPACT has its own Treasurer and accounts, thus insulating its funds from those of the Sun City Democrats Club. IMPACT reports to the Texas Ethics Commission and the Federal Election Commission, a requirement that provides transparency in electoral processes.
IMPACT's contributions are not determined by Sun City Democrats Club's board.
