Read Our 2022 Annual Report

We are super excited to share with you our Annual Report! Check out this awesome recap of all of our activities and organizing from 2022. 2022 was a year with challenges like we have never seen before. The political environment was tense, and expectations for Democrats were low. Right-wing attacks on inclusive education reached a crescendo. And for the first time in our history, hard-won fundamental rights were taken away from Americans. But we didn’t give up. We fought back. This is the story of how. We received so much support in 2022. Whether you volunteered for our campaign, made a donation, or attended one of our events, we want to say thank you. You are helping us make a difference together! I hope you enjoy reading through this report as much as I do! Sincerely, Darcél Elliott, Santa Barbara County Democratic Party Chair
