What's Behind these Calls to Action?
Organizations throughout the country are coordinating to resist reactionary elements in our nation. You can help to make that resistance effective by coordinating the timing of your calls, emails, and postcards with those of other activists. That's why we publish these Action Alerts. We are coordinating with Indivisible Project, Arizona House Democrats, the Arizona Democratic Party, Anne Schneider's Arizona Legislative Alerts, Together We Will Northern Arizona, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Sierra Club, and the ACLU, among others.
These are holding actions and we support and participate in them. To accomplish change, the most important thing you can do is stay informed and persuade everyone who supports progressive change to vote for Democrats in 2020. Make sure your neighbors and everyone you know is registered to vote, signed up for vote-by-mail, and actually votes. Don't wait, start now.

For the Nixon impeachment, the networks rotated coverage so that only one of the “big […]
- One year from tomorrow, you’ll wake up and the Election will be over. What you wake up to then will be determined by what happens now, and for the next year. Make the choice. Spend this time so you won’t regret what you didn’t do. In Arizona, this year has more importance than in many […]

Our County Party leadership is committed to reaching out to every […]
- Here are the six most significant quotations from former Special Counsel Mueller’s testimony yesterday as compiled by the Washington Post 202: 1) On Russian interference in domestic politics: “They’re doing it as we sit here, and they expect to do it in the next campaign.” Mueller said he wrote the first volume of his report […]
- The Coconino County Democratic Party has a long-standing policy of remaining neutral in contested primary races “absent extraordinary circumstances.” The Executive Committee has found it necessary to invoke that exception in the case of the candidacy of Greg DeCross, who has filed to run for one of the two seats in the LD-6 House race […]
- We are in week 19 of the current session. The State Budget will be introduced this week.

- SB 1451 – SCR 1023 – HCR 2005 – OPPOSE – These bills & continuing resolutions would make it almost impossible to get ballot initiatives onto the ballot by making the petition process very complex and difficult. These measures would require 10% of signatures on a citizen’s initiative be collected from every single county in […]
