Red, Wine and Blue

I also received this tip in an email from the same Political Activist I mentioned elsewhere:

Have you heard of the national organization Red Wine and Blue? I wasn’t sure about them a couple of years ago because their website looked so ‘funky’, but I stand corrected. They do great work. They created a ‘sisterhood’ that is rapidly spreading across the country, giving women of all walks of life all the tools they need to successfully organize in their respective communities. They stand for equity and honesty in education, for reproductive rights. They fight against voting restrictions, against library closing and book banning. 

“We exist to lift each other up,” they write in their value statement. 

You might want to share their website with women in your county who’d like to play a role, who are tired of being pessimistic and afraid, who simply want to do their part.

They are already well established in MI, NC, OH, PA and VA, but are calling to women across the country to organize their community and are sharing a lot of helpful tools/resources to ensure their effectiveness. Here is their link:

Dr. Mike and Young Dems

I received the following in an email yesterday. I think it is worth sharing!

Michael Moore created a podcast in his Rumble series in which he reassures ‘Liberals’ that the bleak news about Biden’s polling numbers is not to be trusted. You might want to listen to it. Here is the link to the podcast:


In it he highlights the role that young voters will play in upcoming elections. 

I listened to a webinar organized by the Rural Youth Voter Fund, that was created in 2022 by the Rural Democracy Initiative and launched in 2023. “Rural young people are among the most persuadable and least contacted voters of any demographic group, and young rural voters of color lean strongly towards progressive candidates and issues”, this group wrote, and “activating” such voters could “be the difference in many close elections.” 

Are you at all familiar with their work? Are they in your community, in your State? They are non-partisan but are there Democratic youth in your community who’d like to get involved in civic engagement work?

Joint Education Committee 08AUG2023

You can watch the joint education committee hearing today here:

Here are the details about the entire committee meeting.


Ban Books. Ban Speech. Pretend You Support Freedom.

UPDATE: The Campbell County Library Board voted 4-1 to remove the Director.

Just in case you didn’t think the fight is real, please note that an organization based in another state is still hard at work banning books in Wyoming. As a result of that organization’s efforts, today at 3pm the Campbell County Library Board is planning to meet, probably to fire their award-winning Library Director.

Here’s a story about it from the County17.com news outfit.

And some backstory from various sources:
