We embrace the mission and message of the Democratic party that anyone, from any walk of life, should have a fair shot at the American Dream.
We believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.
Our top priority is electing Democrats who share our values and will work hard to represent all of Orange County Virginia.
Voter education, voter registration and voter protection are key to the success of any democracy. We work to protect the vote.
Rural and small town Virginia voters matter! And their issues matter. Orange County Democrats work to ensure those issues are addressed by our elected officials and candidates for office.
Mark Your Calendar for OCDC Program on Election Cybersecurity and Disinformation
We're very pleased to three experts from the USC Election Cybersecurity Initiative speaking with us at our next OCDC meeting on Saturday, July 9th, 10am. Please join us at 9:30am for coffee and conversation. Our meeting will be in person and also on Zoom. Click here to contact us to receive the Zoom link.
Adam Clayton Powell III, Executive Director of the USC Election Cybersecurity Initiative, will introduce us to his colleagues who will provide us with an update on cyber threats on campaigns, election officials, and individuals, from inside and outside the US, as well as the disinformation campaigns being waged in the US. They'll also provide advice on thwarting these threats and enhancing cyber protections.
These experts are: Sarah Mojarad, who is on the faculty at the University of Southern California's Viterbi School of Engineering. Her areas of expertise are in social media, science communication, and online misinformation. She will be joined by Clifford Neuman, Director of the Center for Computer Systems Security at the University of Southern California and Associate Professor of Computer Science Practice in USC's Viterbi School of Engineering where he oversees USC's computer security curricula.
Following their presentation we will discuss the recent Supreme Court actions, our plans for energizing voters in the November election, and have a Spanberger campaign update. The Spanberger Team will be on hand to launch a canvass after we enjoy a little pizza for lunch after the meeting and before we start knocking on doors. Join us for all or part of the day!
Please join us 1, 2, 3 or 4 Saturdays in July (9, 16, 23, 30) as we knock doors on behalf of the re-election of Abigail Spanberger. We'll be launching from Orange and Locust Grove, so join us where it's most convenient. Please click below to register - and bring a friend!
We are continuing our annual tradition with Democrats from Orange, Culpeper, and Spotsylvania - and adding in Dems from Madison and Greene counties - for a rally to support Abigail's re-election. The event will be on Saturday August 13 in Lake of the Woods and we hope you will show your support with your presence and your donation. Pre-registration is required for this event.
