Thoughts on Thanksgiving from the WCDP Outreach Committee
On behalf of the WCDP and the Outreach Committee, we hope that your Thanksgiving holidays bring you laughter and joy, shared with family and friends.

The first Thanksgiving was celebrated by the Pilgrims who had fled religious persecution in hopes of finding freedom and a better life for their families. These immigrants to a new land survived because of the kindness of strangers, the native peoples who welcomed, fed, and sheltered the refugees. This Thanksgiving season we should remember that we are a nation of immigrants and that Thanksgiving is about kindness, generosity, and caring about others.

We are Democrats because we DO care about others, social justice, and those who are in need. As we celebrate Thanksgiving and all that we are thankful, for let’s also think about ways in which we can show who we are and what we believe by being a part of a WCDP “DEMS CARE” program. At the County Convention on November 26th please bring a canned or non-perishable food item to the meeting, as we hope you will do for all WCDP meetings. The WCDP is also supporting Grizzly Coats, Boots and Warm Clothes for Kids. You can donate new or very gently used clean hats, gloves, boots, scarves or even a coat to help keep a needy child warm this winter.

We are also implementing a very important program to help tutor 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders at Erickson Elementary School in Ypsilanti. Erickson has a poverty rate of over 90% and 3rd grade reading levels of only 7.2%. There is a desperate need for tutors. Anyone who has some available time during the school day can assist. Training will be provided. This is a high priority program that shows that Dems Care about education, poverty, equity and social justice.

Dems Care. Together we can improve Washtenaw County and the lives of its residents.
