Anne -- our call with the first openly elected trans legislator Danica Roem is TODAY at 4pm ET and you don't want to miss it.
We learned a lot from the resounding progressive victories in the 2017 elections and we are going to use these lessons to our advantage in 2018.
The young, diverse, progressive champions we supported in 2017 made history and have become the early faces of what could be a massive national backlash to Trump Republicans' unprecedented extremism.
Will you join us for a special member telebriefing TOMORROW featuring history-making Virginia Delegate-elect Danica Roem and Governor-elect Ralph Northam’s campaign manager Bradley Komar?
The call will be at 4:00pm Eastern Time, Tuesday, December 5 (tomorrow).
Bradley will give us the inside scoop on what strategies paid off and why VA is a strong indicator of what progressives have the potential to do nationally in 2018. And we are thrilled to have Danica, one of PFAW Next Up Victory Fund’s early endorsees, joining us to discuss her historic campaign that kicked one of Virginia’s most extreme anti-LGBTQ legislators out of office.
What: Member telebriefing with Danica Roem and Bradley Komar
Columnist Frank Bruni profiled Danica Roem's amazing run in the New York Times recently:
“She wasn’t making a deeply personal appeal and imploring voters to affirm her. She was making a broadly public one and encouraging them to include her, lest her talents go untapped and her potential contributions unrealized. Her opponent, a Republican, was the one who made a big issue of her gender identity. Roem, a Democrat, let his cruelties roll off her, went back to knocking on doors, defined her common ground with fellow Virginians and planted herself there.”
We are lucky to have both of these talented individuals on this call, so make sure you RSVP to secure a slot now!
