Advocacy Committee

The Advocacy Committee advocates for State and County legislation that addresses WDC's Legislative Priorities. Ginger Macomber and Emily Shetty co-chair the Advocacy committee. 

WDC’s strength resides in its members, and our numbers make us a formidable force for progressive Democratic values.  Be part of this mission.

Priority Issue Area Subcommittees

The Committee currently consists of six Priority Issue Area Subcommittees.  An Issues Captain or Co-Captains chair each Priority Issue Area.  If you can commit the time to identify, track, and advocate for specific legislation, please join one of the six WDC issue sub-committees.

  • Affordable Housing
  • Aging
  • Children and Youth
  • Criminal Justice and Public Safety
  • Health
  • Working Families

Advocacy Alert Team

The Advocacy Committee also maintains an Advocacy Alert email list to notify members about important pending legislation and how to advocate for its passage.  Join WDC's Advocacy Alert Team here or in the form below.  The more members who take action, the more effective WDC will be in its advocacy efforts.
