WHAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN PEOPLE PULL TOGETHER IN ACTIVISM....

Thank you Democrats of the Desert! Yesterday we had a wonderful monthly gathering and CALL TO ACTION FAIR. There was another record breaking crowd.

A CHANCE ENCOUNTER

StartFragmentImagine walking into your local Bank and coming face to face with a United States Senator. There she was, our own Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer. I carefully approached, introduced myself, and we briefly chatted about 'Democrats Of The Desert' How nice to talk and share common thoughts with a Professional such as Senator Boxer. In parting, she gently tapped my arm and said, 'keep up the good work' and that my friends was meant for all of us.......COMMIT TO ACT......We have lots to do.
