Club Presidents Message

March 2022

My Fellow Democrats,

As we enter this election cycle, it has never been more important for us to work for Democracy. My main goal for our coming year – and I hope yours too – is to get Democratic candidates in Arkansas elected to office. This is a tough job and if we’re going to make a difference, we have to move forward as one – irrespective of county lines and district lines. I want our club to work on turning close races in Arkansas blue.

Our Democratic Club has a new committee, “Turn Arkansas Blue.”  This committee will actively work to register voters.  You hear it over and over again – Arkansas is a red state.  Actually, Arkansas is a “non-voting” state.  According to a federal report on the 2020 election turnout, Arkansas ranks last in the U.S. in both voter turnout and registration. As Americans, voting is a sacred right and duty. When we vote, our voices are heard. Our vote is a reminder that we matter and we deserve to be heard.  Every eligible voter in Arkansas.

I believe that the business of our club is serious business, now more than ever. Like many others, I am very fearful that we are in danger of losing our democracy.  If you are also fearful, if you were sickened by what our state legislature did in 2021, we need your support.  We are in the fight for our democracy, and if we don’t face this fight, we cannot win.  No one is going to save us – we have to save ourselves.

Movements are fueled by individuals giving their time, energy, and hope. Small actions and victories lead to bigger ones, and the improbable becomes possible. Our members have always been willing and eager to step up. Let’s be impactful! Let’s fight for democracy together!

Your comments, concerns and general feedback are always welcome.  Please feel free to contact me at nitabrown81@gmail.com

Respectfully,

‘Nita Brown
