Orange County Democratic Women Forms Local Group for Activists

While each person has their own reasons for becoming an activist, the goal of this group is to bring people together to take a stand on issues that deeply impact all Americans. It  seeks to reaffirm the core American values of freedom and democracy for all at a time when many fear that their voices will be lost, specifically related to women’s rights, immigrant rights, worker rights, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, environmental rights, rights for all races, and religious freedom.
