Ward 6 Democrats of Washington, DC
Welcome to the Ward 6 Democrats website. Our mission is to:
Foster and encourage political activity among Ward 6 residents;
Work to constructively improve the quality of life of the District of Columbia residents and improve the communities in which they live;
Contribute to the growth and influence of the Democratic Party, to develop leadership, to increase Party responsibility.
We're always looking for volunteers, and the best way to keep up with our activities is to subscribe to our newsletter. You can do either - or both - via the Join Us button above. You can also follow us on Facebook and on Twitter.
September's Woman of Ward 6 is Coralie Farlee, a long-time Southwest DC resident whose professional career and voluntary contributions impact the lives of many people in Ward 6 and DC. The Ward 6 Democrats are recognizing and honoring Ward 6 women who have made significant contributions to better our community as a lead-up to the 2020 anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
We're down to ten candidates who've qualified for the next debate, which means they'll all be on ONE stage on ONE night. Join your fellow Ward 6 Democrats on Thursday, Sept. 12 at Valor Brewpub (723 8th Street SE) to hear what the candidates have to say and cheer on your favorite(s). Watch party starts at 7:30 p.m., and the debate itself kicks off at 8:00 p.m.
After a break in August, the H Street/NoMa Civic Association is resuming their monthly second Tuesday meetings. They'll be meeting tomorrow night, Tuesday, Sept. 10, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the community room at the 2 M Street Apartments (2 M Street NE). For more information, contact HNCA President Tiffany Aziz at email@example.com.
Volunteer Opportunity: VA State Elections GOTV/Postcard Party - Tuesday, Sept. 17, plus canvassing oppportunity
We're going to keep the postcard-writing momentum going Tuesday, Sept. 17, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. We'll be at Red Bear Brewing Company (209 M Street NE).
We have addresses to finish up for Dan Helmer and Sheila Bynum-Coleman. If we complete those, we'll move on to addresses for Wendy Gooditis.
You can RSVP for the Sept. 17 event at https://www.ward6dems.org/postcard_party - it's not required, but it does help us know how many supplies to bring.
Can't make it on the 17th? Our plan is to keep doing these every other Tuesday until the end of October (the campaigns want the cards to drop the week of October 21). Details about the additional postcard parties will be forthcoming. To join our GOTV team, please email our Outreach Director Andria Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BONUS: Canvassing Opportunity with the Ward 3 Dems, Saturday, Sept. 19
Want to do more to support Sheila? The Ward 3 Democrats are organizing a canvassing trip down to her Richmond-area district Saturday, Sept. 14. For more information or to sign up to join them, visit: https://forms.gle/3MHPD2VMYEYzxYKw5.
As a reminder, we are supporting the campaigns of three candidates in the Virginia state elections this fall, as we work to flip both houses of the Virginia state legislature blue.
- Sheila Bynum-Coleman (HD-66), challenging incumbent Speaker of the House of Delegates Republican Kirk Cox
- Dan Helmer (HD-40), challenging incumbent House of Delegates majority caucus chairman Republican Tim Hugo
- Wendy Gooditis (HD-10), Democratic incumbent seeking her first re-election
All three are on the record in support of DC Statehood. They are also united in their support of issues that matter most to Ward 6 Democratic voters: sensible gun safety protections, protecting women's reproductive rights, support for the ERA, and ending extreme partisan gerrymandering.
