I want to hear from you
Hi. I'm Jess, the new CEO of the Democratic Party.
I'm excited to be joining Tom, the rest of the team at DNC HQ, and all of our amazing supporters like you to rebuild our party from the grassroots up -- because I've seen the power of grassroots movements in action.
I got my start in politics helping elect Democrats in Colorado, Illinois, and my home state of Arizona, where we turned Arizona's 1st congressional district from red to blue.
We did it because we got organized in our communities and went block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood, to get the word out about what we believed in and turn out our voters to the polls on Election Day.
At EMILY's List, where I've been helping elect Democratic women for the past four years, I saw how we can do that same kind of grassroots organizing on a national scale. That's how we elected the most diverse Congress in history, including quadrupling the number of Democratic women of color in the Senate.
If we organize in every zip code, we can elect Democrats from school board to Senate in every corner of this country. I know, as Tom does, that we can do it -- but it's going to take all of us working together to get our party back in fighting form.
So first thing's first: I want to hear from you. Let me know your thoughts and how our party can be more effective in your community so we can elect Democrats at every level and every state:
Thanks so much for being a part of our party. Supporters like you are what powers our candidates to victory, and you've already shown such an unprecedented level of activism and enthusiasm over the past few months.
I'm ready to jump in -- let's get to it.
