First, why it matters – DOMA is still out there, dividing families, discriminating against the Trans Gender and Gay citizens in this country – and it is NOT a done deal as of today that the Democratic National Convention (DNC) will pass a platform that condemns DOMA – the “Defense of Marriage Act” – which is Orwellian language for preventing some folks from marrying (not defending marriage).
Anyway, any registered Democrat has the right to vote in these caucuses - here is the list of congressional district caucuses – and yes, I will be attending and voting in the 5th Congressional District:
This is that time period that happens every four years when we have a time period with lots of Democratic infrastructure activities. From the DSC district elections, the state and local reorganization meetings and onto this weekend when we elect district delegates to the Democratic National Convention. Reminder that the district caucuses are THIS SATURDAY!

And no, I am not running for Democratic National Committeewoman or to attend the National Convention. And yes, I wonder if Citizens United being over turned by constitutional amendment will make it onto the platform.
