Queens Dems participated in the Summer of Resistance this year to protest the election of Donald Trump and amplify the voices of Queens Democrats throughout the country. Nine phone banks were held at Queens Democratic Headquarters in support of Democratic candidates running in traditionally Republican districts, including Rob Quist in Montana and Jon Ossoff in Georgia. The phone banks were attended by more than fifty dedicated volunteers, who spent time making persuasion and get out the vote calls for the Democratic candidates.
Although neither Mr. Ossoff nor Mr. Quist were ultimately successful, the phone banks showcased Queens Dems’ determination to make a positive impact in local and national races. We deeply appreciate and thank all the volunteers who stopped by to make calls. We look forward to continuing to making our voices and values heard across the borough and across the country.
