DNC CALL TO ACTION
This week is one of the most important weeks of our advocacy lives. It’s the week of the Democratic National Convention. If you missed our Coalition call last week and/or our follow-up email, then you may not know that we are planning to have a DAILY virtual presence during the Convention this week. That means we need you to be present with us. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to participate by providing this Digital Toolkit for you to use this week.
