ACTION ALERT: Tell Governor Northam Virginia must Flatten the Curve
Virginia is currently lagging behind other states in COVID-19 testing, and Governor Northam has been reluctant to adopt the strict measures recommended to effectively flatten the curve. Covidactnow.org says Virginia must act now. A statewide shelter in place must be implemented in Virginia between April 15th and April 20th at the latest in order to prevent a lethal overload of Virginia's healthcare system. Call Governor Northam (804-786-2211) and make sure he is aware of CovidActNow's virus curve models so that our citizens do not become victims of the worst case scenario.

Warren County Democratic Committee
The Warren County Democratic Committee works to elect capable, honest, and dedicated Democrats. We support qualified individuals who are committed to the Democratic vision: where hard work is rewarded, fair play is the norm, everyone participates, and the rules are just. If you share our values, join us!
A WORD FROM OUR CHAIRMAN
Welcome to the Warren County Democrats. In this presidential and senatorial election year, we need everyone’s help more than ever. If you’re new to politics, thank you for getting involved. If you’ve been active before, thank you for increasing your level of participation. If you’ve previously sided with other parties, we so appreciate you helping us now. Democrats are truly a “big tent” party. Whether you’re centrist, leftist, or moderate conservative, if you agree that the party of Trump must be defeated, welcome to the effort to promote good governance, with sane, just, and enlightened policies that benefit all of society.
There are many ways to volunteer. Show up at advertised events. Consider joining the Warren County Democratic Committee, with a suggested donation of $30. However much you can afford, we will put it to good use. By all means, give to the campaigns of your favorite candidates; but remember, it costs money to have us as a local presence, paying for printing, office space, event fees, etc. Help us contact targeted voters – we will train you and pair you with experienced door knockers and phone bankers. Help register voters. There are numerous “behind the scenes” support roles to fill: data collection and entry, post card and letter writing, event set up, and more.
Join the fight to protect our environment, ensure health care, strengthen the middle class, help the poor, support education, and maintain a strong, sensible national defense. To accomplish this, we must remove from office the most corrupt, dangerous leader in our nation’s history. The stakes couldn’t be higher, and we’re counting on YOU!
In an increasingly polarized media environment, it can be hard to separate truth from political spin when it comes to the issues about which our community cares. Members of the Warren County Democratic Committee are dedicated to keeping you informed so you can make sound decisions each time you exercise your right to vote.
