Note from Lita

May 17, 2022
Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

As I write this I am watching the news about the horrific Buffalo shootings and then, right in our backyard, the shootings at a Laguna Woods church. Every day, more shootings, More than 200 mass shootings in less than 6 months. Hate motivated, anger motivated, in homes, in malls, theaters, houses of worship, literally anywhere. Too many shootings, too many guns, too much hate. And too many legislators who care more about money than they do about human life. Oh, the Republican electeds say they care about human life prior to birth, but once we are here they care not a whit.

The gun situation has always been heartbreaking to me and, through my adult life, through all of our adult lives, it has gotten so much worse.

We are most certainly at a crossroads here. A crossroads to protect our country, to protect our democracy, to protect our rights. And, if we manage to elect a Democratic majority, they CAN do something about guns.

Today, as I was watching the pollsters, they actually admitted that the Dems can win the Senate. Well, we can win the House too, yes we can, and we can begin to stop this madness.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow night.

Activism

May 14, 2022
Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

I know that I, as you, have been fixated on the news. Hillary Clinton spoke to me in a CBS interview when she said,

"This opinion is dark, it is incredibly dangerous and its not just about a woman's right to choose; it's about much more than that and I hope people now are fully aware of what we're up against. Because the only answer is at the ballot box, to elect people who will stand up for every American's rights.

"And any American who says, 'I'm not a woman, this doesn't effect me, I'm not black, that doesn't effect me, I'm not gay, that doesn't effect me...' Once you allow this kind of extreme power to take hold, you have no idea who they will come for next."

I am absolutely horrified about what is happening. To the rights of women to control their own bodies and I know, as Hillary says, women are just the beginning. Much as I thought that the election of 2020 was the most important, I was wrong. 2022 is the most important election of our time. And then the one after that.

We must increase our donations, we must increase our activism, we must increase our numbers, we must increase our involvement. We can win and we must win. We will register new voters and we will encourage those registered voters who often skip the off-year elections, to get out and vote.

I encourage you to attend our meetings, to get involved in any way you can, to join the PAC, to give more and to give monthly if that works for you. I upped my donations this month and I hope you will join me.

Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing you this coming Tuesday, May 17.

We must act NOW!

May 12, 2022
Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

When I turn on the TV and see the protesters at the Supreme Court, I flash back to when I was in college, celebrating in the streets when the Roe decision that changed our lives became the law of the land, when the rights of women to have control over our own bodies were finally secured. Now, as I watch today's protesters, I cannot breathe. It is too shocking and it is too sad. It is wrong and it could be just the beginning.

I know you are you as outraged, infuriated, frightened, and appalled as we are by what is happening in the Supreme Court.  This is the first time in history the Supreme Court will have revoked a constitutional right. And the stark reality is that a woman’s right to choose may soon be stripped away, potentially everywhere in the country. If the Republicans win in November, more of our rights will be trampled.  

We cannot and we must not let this happen! Please join us and help us to elect Democrats to Congress and the Senate in the Fall. We absolutely must hold the House, and we have to make gains in the Senate. We cannot let Republicans take over and steamroll women’s rights and human rights. Please donate today. www.democpac.org.

You know we will be trustworthy guardians of your dollars, to get them to the races where we can make a difference, so that we can prevail in November.

Thank you so much,

Lita Robinow, Chair, Deborah Newquist, Fundraising Chair
and the DemOC PAC Executive Committee
