Dear YavDem Supporter,

To be effective we need to be organized and we want to have Yavapai County be more organized than we have ever been this year. We are going to host a Rural Action Summit June 11, 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at Mile High Middle School in downtown Prescott to inform and inspire the people who will make a difference in this year’s statewide elections. Our Rural Action Summit will emphasize the importance of direct voter contact and provide leadership training in phone banking, text banking, social media messaging and door-to-door canvassing. If we pull together and strengthen our organizing networks we can begin the transformational political work that will make Arizona a better place to be.

Dear YavDem Supporter,

It seems like every election for the past few cycles is the most important election of our lives and 2022 is no different. This year we need to #ProtectDemocracy in Arizona. The choices are clear and stark. Democrats have people fighting for public education, your right to vote, affordable healthcare, reproductive rights, and solutions to the challenges of climate change.

Our statewide and district Republicans have track records restricting voting rights, defunding public education, botching the COVID crisis, ignoring water issues, and supporting the January 6th insurrection.

Dear YavDem Supporter,

This Friday, we're supporting a rally to show our solidarity with the Ukrainian people in the face of an unprovoked, violent invasion by Russia. Sponsored by Prescott Peacekeepers, Prescott Indivisible, and Granite Peak UU Congregation, the rally is a chance for us to protest a war in which nuclear weapons have been threatened.
   
This month our Second Sundays Live and Third Thursday Zoom events will feature statewide candidates and an author who exposed how democracy is being attacked in Republican states.

Dear YavDem Supporter,

As Democrats, we should share John Dewey’s sentiments around Public Education. Open and equal access to knowledge is the bedrock of a free society. The importance of an educated populace in maintaining and informing a democracy can not be understated. The marketplace of ideas is nourished by investments in education. We are failing in Arizona by not investing in public education.

Dear YavDem Supporter,


The Yavapai Democrats and I hope your spirit and strength are renewed from the holiday season. We are proud of our victories in 2021 and I’d like to mention just a few:

Activists from Yavapai County spearheaded the effort to get the American Dental Association to 
#RemovePaulGosar from their funding list. It worked. Northern Arizona played a critical role in obtaining enough signatures to send the flat tax bill back to the voters in 2022.
