Grassroots Coordinating Committee
The WNDC Grassroots Coordinating Committee, a corps of activist groups that coalesced around WNDC after the 2017 Women’s March, had a fantastic first week of March. After going through a wide-ranging and creative drafting process, they presented six resolutions to the Democratic National Committee — all of which passed unanimously. GCC members fanned out to attend as many council meetings as possible, introduce themselves to DNC members, and host a happy hour all in the name of acquainting the DNC with their powerful grassroots activism. As WNDC VP for Programs Naomi Naierman said, the GCC is “changing the DNC culture and the way they do business.”
Not resting on their laurels, GCC members rallied just two days after the DNC meeting for a phonebank to urge voters to turn out for Conor Lamb in PA-18’s special election. You can join them for all of these activities and more. The GCC is in the midst of finding new facilitators and creating its plan for 2018. Discussion of these issues will be the focus of its upcoming meetings; the next one is Monday, April 16, at 6:30pm.
