The DTC will be purchasing postcards and stamps. We just need your help with writing them! Please email us and let us know how many postcards you will commit to writing so we know how many to order. We will get in touch with you when the postcards arrive and provide you with all you need to get started.
UPDATE - November 17: Thanks to your enthusiastic response, the TDTC has received commitments from community members to send out 1,500 postcards in support of this project!
We will not be taking any more orders, but if anyone still wants to help in some way, please let us know. The deadline for getting the postcards in the mail is November 24.

The Sixth District Unites, which premieres on the YouTube page on Tuesday, October 6th at 7:00 PM, will feature personal messages of unity and hope from more than 16 state and national Democratic leaders. The goal is to bring candidates together to inspire victory in November.
Organized by 20+ Democratic Committees and activist groups in the 6th district, the event is based roughly on the State-by-State Roll Call at the Democratic National Convention this summer. It will introduce and celebrate candidates and officeholders who represent the district, and encourage voters to "WATCH, ACT, VOTE" in the final campaign push to Election Day.
"The sixth district Congressional primary was a bruising three-way race," said David Belsky, Co-chair of the West Newbury Democratic Town Committee. The organizers wanted to unite candidates after that primary and thank the competitors for their willingness to serve. The concept expanded to include Democratic state legislative candidates and party leaders.
"This was not only a chance to unite the candidates, but unify our Democratic Committees," according to Belsky. "It's not often that so many organizations can work together so closely toward a common goal."
The planners hope the event will be informative and uplifting at a time when most voters could use that type of inspiration.
To view the event, which will premiere at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, October 6th, go to http://bit.ly/MA-6Unites. The Sixth District Unites will remain on YouTube for viewing through Election Day.
