Thank you to everyone - because of your support we brought 9 incredible resistance groups to meet with members and the room was packed. You can watch the event here: https://www.facebook.com/TYTpolitics/videos/1822943651286675/

Honestly, we have Idaho looping with #ResistTrumpTuesdays, Georgia with Sister District, Wyoming with People for Bernie, California with the Womens March, New Jersey with Rise Stronger, Indiana with Run for Something, California with #BlackLivesMatter, North Dakota wants to host the next Arena Summit.....

I cannot explain how amazing it was to see these groups connect. And we will keep going.

I lost. I came in 3rd -I got 193.5 of the vote count - Congresswoman Grace Meng 216.5 came in second and Maria Elena Durazo with 228.5.

I then went into the 3rd round with the men - and dropped out to endorse Michael Blake who became the third Vice Chair. You can watch the whole thing here: https://www.democrats.org/page/dnc-future-forum-livestream

We also had a tech round table, with 50 attendees - and I have to say DNC members left saying it was one of the best events they have been to with clear follow up and substantive conversation. Huge thanks to everyone who put it together.

It really was an amazing experience and we did a lot. Also let's be clear - this is just the beginning. I am committed to helping the Democratic party win, and meet with these organizations and elevate technology.... so - I am going to Colombia for a week and then when I get back we are getting started. I have already had 5 states ask me to help them organize similar pannels and round tables for the members in state - so yes some $$$ to help get folks there will be key....

Stay tuned for updates on how you can all help and how we win, and how we keep going and fighting

with love for everything

Liz

After this last election I've decided it's time to get involved beyond just voting and change this thing from the inside. It doesn't help to vote when I don’t see redeeming qualities in the available candidates. I fully believe this is the time for the Democratic Party to transform, not stick with the same failed tactics. Listening to Liz campaign for DNC Vice Chair has earned her my support. I believe Vice Chair is the perfect spot for Liz to use her unique skill set to back-up the DNC Chair, and Party as a whole. Let’s move forward and include every progressive in the process, not just a select group of insiders with stale strategies.”

With the hugest thanks - we hit our goal - let's go

Everyone,

Thank you!!! Because of you we have mail scheduled to go out. We have tshirts being made for Detroit, Baltimore and Atlanta. We have buttons (huge ones with my face on them being printed for the forums). We have a satisfied yet exhausted campaign manager, and a website team that hates me just a leetle beet less.

The rest I am donating to any additional expenses (if we need more rally signs) if not I will give it a local political group who needs the money, and let you know. Probably in NC (since it's our next redistricting chance).

I have been working all night to update this stupid spreadsheet of DNC members (because of course, why would they ever just make a simple google doc where you can get updated members). Now that it's done, I can start mailers, follow up on my one on one calls, and share this list with those who want it so they can tell the members to vote for me.

I have been getting support from Members across the board, with more and more people stepping up to call on my behalf. It feels amazing. What is more amazing, are the emails and notes and tweets I'm getting saying "thank you" and "go for it" and "we need change!". People are so desperate to fix this party, and we can do it.

I'm going to get back to work now, but wanted to send a quick note to say - you gave to a campaign that will fight, and be honest, and try and make all of this just a little bit easier and a lot more open in the future - lets make the DNC the party for the people.

With love and thanks

Liz

    “I was at the Houston DNC Future Forum listening to each vice chair candidate speak and Liz Jaff stood out as a voice of level headed reason and practicality. She spoke about realistic obstacles the party faces and with each problem she gave solutions. The DNC needs leaders that are able to come to the table with substantive solutions, Liz Jaff is that leader we need.”

    “Liz is articulate and possesses a vision worth supporting.”

  • endorsed

    “Of all the candidates I heard speaking at the DNC Forum in Houston, she alone spoke to the empowerment of the people. She alone spoke about the use/integration of current web-tech and crowd-sourcing to aid the party in capturing and reaching out to voters and constituents in a way that hasn't been done before. She alone had actual solutions for increasing transparency and open communication within the party that could be implemented within the year. Her passion and enthusiasm stood out among everyone gathered on the stage that day and it was matched by her knowledge about strengthening the currently weakened party. It was clear to all listening that she was head and shoulders above her peers when it came to knowledge about voter outreach, campaign financing/funding, and voter empowerment. If there was a person to be trusted with spearheading the new direction of the party, she was that person. She inspired me, a person who's never been politically involved, to seek out and join my local democratic party and get involved. Regardless of the outcome of the Vice Chair campaign, I am behind this incredibly vibrant, intelligent, and strong-willed woman. Thanks for running for Vice Chair Liz Jaff!”
