FCDC Special Communications 
To assist our 2019 candidates, the Fairfax Democrats are asking interested members to sign up and help with a coordinated communications effort.  They already have a framework in place and now need help crafting and amplifying our messages.

What do the candidates need from FCDC? They are looking for members to help with several types of activities such as:
– Writing content for social media, blogs, websites and more
– Conducting research about issues, candidates and opportunities
– Rapid response team to spring into action if a political crisis emerges
