Dear Democrats of the Desert Members & Friends, We want to send you all our sincerest thanks for attending our Champions of Activism Awards this past Sunday.

A message from our newly elected President, Robert Westwood

Greetings, Wonderful Democrats! Thank you for visiting this website and your interest in Democrats of the Desert ! DOD is an amazing organization with an energetic, dynamic board of directors. As your newly elected president, I assure you that we will work hard this year with our Commit to Act 2017 theme. Already this year, we have had standing room only crowds to hear an ACLU attorney (January) and for elections and an incredibly successful Call to Action Fair (February). We are in a crisis in America with a right wing, extremely conservative man in the White House and his pundits in Congress who want to turn their backs on progressive values, issues and policies. WE CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN,
