We just heard President Obama’s State of the Union message, highlighting issues that are important to us: a livable minimum wage, immigration reform, continued progress on the Affordable Care Act, diplomacy over war, equal pay, extending unemployment benefits, jobs, voting rights and much more. The President is doing what he can through executive orders, but we know that this Republican House will not allow movement on a wide range of these vital issues that are affecting lives every day.

Now is the time to take action to make this agenda possible! In 2014 we must elect more Democrats to gain a majority of the House. Despite the odds, with a lot of work – and prayer – it is possible. We are ready to make a major impact on the mid-terms this year, and here is the first step to do it. The way we move forward to make a difference this year is through the best grassroots medium we have available to us – social media.
Please email us or fill out our volunteer form to express interest in being part of our Facebook initiative, and please also consider becoming a CDA member. Most of all, pray with us that this will indeed be a “year of action” as President Obama has lined up!
Below are some of our favorite quotes from tonight’s State of the Union:
“No family working full time should have to raise a child in poverty”
“For the sake of our national security, we must give diplomacy a chance to succeed”
“There are people who get up every morning praying they don’t get sick….no one should have to live that way”
“Let’s not have another 40-something votes to repeal a law that is already helping millions of Americans!”
“Women deserve equal pay for equal work”
“Let’s CLOSE the prison at Guantanamo Bay”
