I’m a volunteer for YCDP. From time to time, I hear someone suggest that the local party organization is under-performing — “Why isn’t the Party doing THIS?”…or, “The Party never __________” or “Why don’t they _________ like they do in ______?”
Local Democrats seem to have some fuzzy idea that YCDP is some marvel of purpose and efficiency with lots of people and resources. It’s hard to keep a straight face when people complain. A bluntly honest answer might be, “It would happen if you weren’t too lazy to do it.”
A local political party is a framework for things to happen. More than any other organization, it is only people. No people, no action. If you’re content with that, that’s the way it’ll be.

-Women’s March Yuma
For anyone interested in showing their solidarity with those marching in D.C., we will be hosting a sister event/rally in Yuma to show our support for public policies that work in favor of the disadvantaged and that unite rather than divide. In order to give us time to put in place publicity and permits and to create the best experience for the participants, we are holding this event on February 5th, 2017. Please gather with us at ramada #26, in the northwest middle of Kennedy Park at 4:00 PM on Feb. 5th. This is an INCLUSIVE event, and EVERYONE who supports equal rights is welcome!!
We will hear from advocacy groups on concerns regarding healthcare concerns, gender equality, reproductive rights, and immigration concerns
We will also have live music from artists around the community, including the opportunity to learn and sing together “Quiet,” the empowering song used at the Women’s March on Washington.
Here we go–a new year to support our local Democratic Party.
Please join us Thursday, January 12, at 7 pm, at our party headquarters (290 S 1st Avenue, Ste 1)
We will put the finishing touches on our Diamonds and Denim Celebration on January 21.
