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

Heading into Baltimore and Day 1 Plans

Hi Everyone,

First off thank you so much to those of you who donated, this is huge and helps get build our momentum in Atlanta and Baltimore (yes we needed more buttons and signs), also these members have to get woo'ed at events.... yes that's real.

After Detroit we signed up every member who was there as a supporter or "very close" - it was pretty fantastic. They liked the straight talk and the fact that I had an actual plan for Day 1 - to build an online platform.

At the same time it's all up in the air, we need members to pick up their phones or at least watch the forums. There should be 58 Members in Baltimore and that is a good thing. We are headed to Baltimore tomorrow - and yes if you can come please please do! 9-4pm Baltimore Convention Center on Saturday.

Email info@lizforvicechair.com for more details.

Meanwhile we are getting a lot of attention on the Day 1 clip - At the forum in Detroit, I was asked what I would do first if elected Vice-Chair. Here is my answer.

At this critical time of our country, we no longer have the luxury to talk in vague generalities about providing more for grassroots and State Parties, about how we need to do better candidate recruitment or increasing our outreach to voters.

We need to offer specific plans about how we will accomplish those things.

The #resistance is happening with, or without the involvement of the Democratic Party. We need to bring the DNC to these movements. The DNC can play a leading role by connecting these movements to each other and to the only party capable of stopping this administration and this Congress. In turn the DNC is strengthened by tapping into the energy and passion of the people. My platform is a specific outline on how we can accomplish these goals. I am offering clear deliverables with the expertise and plan to execute.

In my career, I have worked for Democrats at every level. When I worked for both Obama campaigns, I was inspired by the energy that swept an amazing candidate into the highest office we have. Then I managed Rep. John Delaney's winning race in 2014, where I saw firsthand the struggle for attention and resources that accompany down ballot races. That is why afterwards, I devoted myself to helping local Democrats secure those resources through crowdfunding and online organizing. I know my plan can work because I've seen it work. I know I can make it work inside the DNC because I have done it outside the party already.

The growing support that I have received from DNC Members across the country is amazing and speaks to just how important it is that we open up the DNC and turn it into the online innovation hub for all democrats to take action. Together, we can improve the DNC so that we can fight back against Trump and congressional Republicans.

Next stop, Baltimore!

    “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.”

    “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!”
