Investments prioritize senior staff organizing in communities of color starting this summer, boost Democracy Summer program
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced today that it will be making 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 Constituency Organizing Directors will focus particularly on working with Black, Hispanic, Native American, and AAPI communities.
“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.”
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.
