We in the DMV know better than anyone the power of the state legislature. Virginia flipped ours in 2017 and 2019, and we passed an avalanche of progressive legislation in 2020. (DC is still fighting to have a state legislature, which we know would do amazing things.) So we're joining forces to help our friends to the south do the same thing in 2020. And what better way to do that than to adopt Ricky Hurtado, a native of rural North Carolina and the son of working-class immigrants who has risen to be a community leader and will do a fantastic job in Raleigh.
Join us over Zoom on June 12 to meet Ricky and DC native Terence Everitt, an incumbent NC legislator whose seat we also need to protect. You will find out why Ricky is running, what it will mean if he, Terence, and the rest of the Democratic slate wins big in November, and what you can do to help them out. And of course, every vote for Ricky will undoubtedly help elect Cal Cunningham to the US Senate and put NC's 15 electoral votes into Joe Biden's column.
We'll send you the Zoom link when you RSVP via Mobilize: https://www.mobilize.us/arlingtonbluefamilies/event/277570/. In the meantime, if you live in or around Arlington, you can sign up to write postcards for Ricky here: https://arlingtondemocrats.org/start-making-difference-now/letters/.
