The Democratic Outreach & Engagement Task Force will lead the effort to empower the American people to get engaged in the democratic process. Too many people are detached from the democratic process. They feel discouraged and are disconnected. They’ve asked themselves and their representatives, “why bother?”
The Democratic Outreach & Engagement Task Force will answer that question, by connecting what we do in Congress with its impact on their families’ lives and their children’s futures. We will clearly convey the choices Americans face, the consequences of one set of policies over another, and the impact of letting others do the choosing. As we celebrate the 50thanniversary of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, we will remind Americans what is at stake and will inspire them to exercise their rights as citizens of this great country.
