    Are you fed up with politicians who are not taking the proper action to solve this terrible issue of gun violence and gun safety in America? Are you terrified thinking of the safety of your children and your grandchildren? Is it impossible to imagine the tragedy and pain that a family who has lost their child to a school shooting is experiencing? Do you want CHANGE? Do you want ACTION?

    We must flex the power of the people in this nation. Join us as we support the WEAR ORANGE weekend & National Gun Violence Awareness Day. This event is organized to honor survivors of gun violence by participating online and in your community to promote action. CTD is going to host a two hour phone banking session where we will call Senators (Republican) and leave messages imploring them to do the right thing for our children and vote for Gun Safety Laws that will come to the Senate in the next few weeks for debate. We will call our Democratic Senators as well to urge them to end the filibuster, if needed, to pass these sensible gun laws! 

    We will have phone message scripts & phone numbers ready for you to use. We will also have a bunch of other actions and awareness activities you can carry on with your family, friends and children throughout WEAR ORANGE Weekend.

    We can do something important together! We can also find comfort in our community action. If you are like most people, a little bit of comfort from doing something to make the change we seek is helpful. Invite your friends! JOIN US!

  • published MORE BLUE '22 STRATEGY in ABOUT US 2022-02-02 14:38:25 -0800


    We at Commit to Democracy know that 2022 will be a tough year. We have to hold the House and expand the Senate in order to build for our country’s future. We must do this to continue passing legislation that will benefit the future of our families, our communities, and our entire nation. We must do this work to protect the democratic principles that our country was founded upon. Now is the time to step forward with a bold strategy and work to win.

    We can win! We have more volunteers than in other mid-term cycles, and we know how to organize. We won the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. We are not new to this work. Let’s start now by phone banking, texting, postcarding, and canvassing. We will win by using all these outreach efforts.
    We have more volunteers than in other mid-term cycles, and we know how to organize. We can Make the News. We can take the Narrative! Here's how!

    Our 2022 Strategy - Hold Blue Seats, Flip Open & Vulnerable Red Seats.

    Increase Our Majority & Create a Filibuster Proof Senate!


    CTD is back to Canvassing as a significant part of its 2022 strategy to win more blue in '22.  In March we will be kicking off our strategy for this year's Canvass Season! Our Canvass Team will concentrate on races in the Central Valley that we want to flip and keep blue. We will partner with other organizations in the SF Bay Area to maximize our strength and results. Sign up to join the team! Don't miss the fun! Don't miss finding out how you can get back out with voters safely and with confidence!

  • published PHONE BANKS FOR DEMOCRACY in ALL EVENTS 2021-08-26 07:08:39 -0700

    Phone Bank for Democracy


    You will join other VOLUNTEERS on Zoom and go to a break out room, either to receive training or to start making calls. Technical support will be available. Throughout our Phone Banks, you’re invited to meet your fellow phone bankers, share success stories, and provide us feedback.

    For most of our Phone Banks we will be using the automated dialer Callhub, which requires that you have a PC or MAC with audio functionality. It dials numbers for you through your computer; the voter sees a number with a local area code (not your phone number). Information on how to use CallHub will be included in our Confirmation email.

    Join us in this important work!

    Postcards to Voters Program

    Postcards to Voters Program

    Postcards to Voters is Commit To Democracy's program to continue reaching out to Voters nationwide to strengthen and restore our democracy.  We have learned together that citizenship is an ongoing responsibility and engaging Voters in the political process is the only means for establishing equitable representation and legislation that fosters a more fair and just America for All!  Staying in touch with our fellow citizens to maintain awareness, keep them informed on elections and important work in the congress, registering new voters, and GOTV initiatives is critical.  Our Postcard Program is unique in that within California we provide 22 different locations for Postcard pickup. We also have a location in Fairfax Virginia. In each location, we supply the cards, names, and script for you to write your fellow Americans.  We choose campaigns that are known to be effective and we provide all the support you need to be successful.  We hope you will join us in Reaching Out to America!

    Join the awesome Commit to Democracy Postcard Writers Team to promote awareness of how effective the Democrats have been in passing important legislation that improves the lives of Americans.  We are writing to voters in Swing States and Districts to ensure they are aware of what Democrats are delivering to the American people! Continuing to promote and support the work of the Biden/Harris administration is paramount to building the momentum for expanding our majority in the House and Senate in 2022.   Join us in our postcard writing campaign to reach Nevada voters.  

    We are one of the only organizations that still supply postcards to writers.  We do that to keep overall costs down for everyone and to make writing more convenient.  Please note that we do ask for a donation to Commit To Democracy to cover the costs of the postcards:  $5 for every 100 postcards.  

    Ordering postcards is as easy as 1, 2, 3.  1.  Click on the link below and place your order.  2.  Pickup your order and complete the cards per the instructions.  3.  Mail your cards by the deadline and order more!
