 November 2021 Kent Dems Newsletter
In this newsletter:
Letter From The Editor
Hi, my name is Micah Perkins and I am excited to start in my role as Communications Chair for the Kent County Democratic Party.  We get to continue the Democratic Party's legacy of inclusion, equity, and dignity for all people regardless of class, gender, race or sexual orientation, and I am so proud to be a part of it. As we continue to grow our party and turn Kent County blue, feel free to reach out if you would like to be more involved and if there's an event or organization that you feel would benefit from exposure in this newsletter.
Donor Matching Fund
A generous donor has agreed to match all donations to the Kent County Democratic Party, to ensure we have the infrastructure to support our growing number of local candidates. Please give what you can now so that we can get these matching funds and support campaigns for offices such as school board and city commission.
Turning Kentwood Blue
The City of Kentwood elections are only 1 week away! Let's pitch in together, attend the following events, and get our endorsed candidates elected:
Labor in the News
Our brothers and sisters in the Kellogg's Battle Creek, MI factory are striking for the first time since 1972.  Even though Kellogg's CEO makes in excess of $18,000,000/yr, Kellogg's is pushing to make their transition workforce permanent.  This workforce makes roughly 2/3rds of what Kellogg's legacy employees make and get more expensive health insurance and no pension.  Let's stand with our fellow Democrats, no cereal until our brothers and sisters are properly compensated!  Here's where you can donate to their gofundme, here's where you can sign a pledge showing your support!  Democrats have always partnered with organized labor to make our country a land of more opportunity for working men and women and a place where working men and women can unite to make conditions better for each other and their children.
