With the passage of a vote-by-mail amendment to our Bylaws, we are now authorized to hold "official" online meetings for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis. (Thank you, PCOs, for the unanimous vote!)

Our amazing Democratic Members of Congress, US Rep. Suzan DelBene (WA-1), and US Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA-7) will be joining us on Wednesday, April 15th, to talk COVID-19 Federal response, the economic crisis, and more help on the way.
Mark your calendars! The gathering will occur on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at 6:45pm, although the Zoom link will be open for people to join as early as 6:30pm.
Program: We will hear from Rep. Jayapal from 6:45pm to 7:10pm, and then Rep. DelBene will join us from 7:10pm on. Each will take a few questions from members!
After our US Representatives, we will have some King County Judicial candidates who would like to introduce themselves.
The 46th District Democrats (Julie Anne Kempf, chair) are inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
April 22*, 2020 7:00pm Zoom meeting: Official April Monthly Business Meeting
(Please note, this is a date change for this month. We bumped the April meeting out one more week, as we had inadvertently scheduled it for the last night of Passover. Our apologies to our Jewish community members!)
The major item we have on the agenda for voting purposes is discussion and voting on the endorsement rules for 2020, which is continuing business from the February meeting.
Our Rules committee chair and the primary sponsor of the amendments under consideration are hard at work to put together explanatory materials so that the progression through the discussion and votes will be smooth and collegial for all. We will publish these documents several days in advance of the meeting.
Also, there is no vote attached, but we will have an explanation and discussion of how the LD and CD caucuses will be conducted in a virtual environment.
We will publish the Zoom meeting link immediately following this Wednesday's "Conversation with Our Congress Members online gathering" via email, and will also post it on the 46th District Democrats' web page at the same time.
We are posting one Zoom meeting link at a time each week, as soon as the previous meeting is over, to prevent confusion.
Legislative District State Delegate Selection Process:
We should also note that the in-person Legislative District caucus scheduled for April 26th, has been moved entirely online. Due to COVID-19, There will be no in-person LD Caucuses for this year.
