Investments prioritize senior staff organizing in communities of color, including across Texas, starting this summer
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced that it will be investing in organizers across Texas as part of an initial seven-figure investment in organizing programs this summer to organize grassroots supporters, potential voters, and new voters to protect the Democratic House majority.
The earliest ever organizing investment of this scale and scope in DCCC’s history, it places nearly 50 Organizing Directors and Constituency Organizing Directors in key districts across the country that are crucial to Democrats keeping and expanding their majority.
The investment includes on-the-ground organizers in crucial Texas communities like the Rio Grande Valley, Dallas, and Houston areas. The Texas organizing team will be tasked with in-person engagement, registering voters, and conducting outreach to the diverse electorate across the state, including Hispanic voters.
“Democrats are serious about building out a robust grassroots and volunteer infrastructure across the battleground,” said DCCC Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney. “This initial investment will help the DCCC connect with more voters in critical districts and allow us to better engage with communities of color. With legislative wins that put more shots in arms, cash in pockets, and kids safely in schools, Democrats are working sooner than ever before with organizers already based in their communities to continue delivering real relief for the American people.”
“This early organizing investment in Texas shows Democrats are hitting the ground running to meaningfully connect with communities across the state,” said DCCC spokesperson Monica Robinson. “Texans deserve better than the failed Republican leadership that hung families and small businesses out to dry in the face of a devastating natural disaster and a global pandemic. Democrats are delivering on our promises to working families and kickstarting our economic recovery, and we’ll be taking that message door to door as early as this summer.”
Building on the DCCC Democracy Summer Program led by DCCC Vice Chair for Organizing Rep. Jamie Raskin, this investment will be able to run more strategic outreach and build trust between Democrats and communities of color, and other key constituencies in key congressional districts. The four dozen Organizing Directors and Constituency Organizing Directors will be placed in every Frontline district, offensive districts where vulnerable Republicans will have to defend their seats, and in key communities of color across Democrats’ House battlefield.
