NEWS & UPCOMING EVENTS
JANUARY EVENING MEETING
Tuesday, January 28, 2020
The Democratic Club South of the Broad presents a new film, Suppressed: The Fight to Vote at Palmetto Electric Company Community Room, 111 Mathews Drive, on Tuesday, January 28. Social time at 6:30, film at 7:00. No reservations required.
Suppressed: The Fight to Vote is a new documentary by Robert Greenwald that weaves together personal stories from voters across the state of Georgia to paint an undeniable picture of voter suppression in the 2018 midterm election. Stacey Abrams fought to become the first Black female governor in the U.S. while her opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, was in charge of running the election. In a race that was ultimately decided by 54,723 votes, the film exposes that the basic constitutional right to vote continues to be under siege in America.
Runtime: 38 minutes

TAKING ACTION NOW!
DINING WITH DEMS
WE NEED HOSTS!
We need to start fundraising now for 2020! Dining With Dems is a lot of fun and a very important piece of our fundraising. You can help by volunteering to host a Dining With Dems event at your home. If you are interested, please contact Sally Nicastre at for details.
We would really love to host some of these events in Bluffton. If you are one of our Bluffton supporters, we hope you will consider volunteering.
Several months before each election, the League of Women Voters website, VOTE411.COM, assembles excellent information about all candidates in national and local elections. You can compare the candidates' positions on a variety of issues and build a personalized sample ballot.
The Beaufort County Politics page includes maps of all relevant electoral districts in Beaufort County as well as a list of all incumbents in most elected positions in the County.
LOWCOUNTRY LIBERALS SUMMIT
The Democratic Club SOB is a member of the Lowcountry Liberals Summit, a coalition of fourteen local liberal organizations. It is a way for liberal-leaning organizations to meet, get to know one another personally, exchange ideas and seek ways to be involved in mutual areas of interest, activities and action. This summit group has significantly enhanced communication, information sharing and cooperative efforts for action, protests, elections, issues awareness and other outcomes.
One of the many benefits is a combined calendar of events of all liberal events in the area. To see this calendar, go to lowcountryliberals.com
