Town Democrats hold 2nd forum in series

Democratic logo, 2021

The second of a three-part series of interactive forums, hosted by the Arlington Democratic Town Committee, will be held virtually Thursday, June 3, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

In these forums, Democratic activists come together to inspire and inform one another on actions they can take — at the national, state, and local levels — to help elect Democrats. Titled “Ensuring a Democratic Victory in the 2022 Massachusetts Gubernatorial Race,” the event offers speakers who include Wilnelia Rivera and Lezlie Braxton Campbell.

The former led Ayanna Pressley’s successful congressional campaign and was recently named one of the 100 most influential Bostonians by Boston Magazine. The latter is president of the Young Democrats of Massachusetts. The moderator is Crystal Haynes, Emmy Award-winning journalist and member of the Arlington Human Rights Commission. 

The forum will explore key questions, including:

  • Why is it so important – and so historically difficult - to elect a Democratic governor in Massachusetts? 
  • As the field of gubernatorial candidates begins to take shape, how can each of us help to ensure that a Democrat wins next year’s race?

Following analysis and firsthand perspectives from a diverse and accomplished panel of speakers, attendees will engage in breakout strategy sessions, coming away with specific insights and action items to equip both experienced activists and first-timers alike with concrete ways to make a critical difference.

The final forum, “Local Actions, More Voices,” will be held June 17.

The series is cosponsored by the Democratic Town Committees of Belmont, Boxborough, Brookline, Concord, Lenox, Lexington, Malden, Watertown, and Weston, as well as by organizing groups Indivisible Acton Area, Indivisible Billerica Tewksbury Wilmington, Our Revolution Arlington, Swing Left Greater Boston, Voter Choice Massachusetts, and Young Democrats of Massachusetts.
