Saturday, January 21, 2017 was a BIG day for women and our country as solidarity marches were held in more than 673 cities around the nation to reaffirm all Americans “stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.”
The Women's March was also intended to send an unmistakable message to the new administration on Day 1 that "women's rights are human rights" and to make no mistake about it. Considering more than 500-thousand marchers were on hand in Washington D.C. alone - nearly doubling those present at the prior day's inauguration event - that message should have been heard loud and clear.
DoCC members participated in the Women's March in Fernandina Beach, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. A photo from the march in Fernandina Beach is shown below.
Young Democrats of Camden County Georgia (YDCCG)
Our June meeting was a Caucus to elect new Committee members. We also welcomed five new first-time attendees, and are looking forward to campaigning for a terrific set of Democratic candidates for Governor and other state offices as well for the Democratic candidate for Georgia’s 1st Congressional District.
The Young Democrats of Camden County Georgia (YDCCG) held their first official meeting Mach 9, 2017. They elected six executive officers, as well as approving and adopting their charter and platform. While the YDCCG is a completely independent entity, the DoCC stands ready to provide support as request. Congrats YDCCG and good luck! We're very glad to have you on board working towards an even stronger Democratic Party for America!
July 4, 2017 Independence Day Celebration
The John W. King memorial tree planting ceremony on Saturday, March 4, 2017 was well attended and held under sunny skies. John passed away in 2014 after eight years of residing in St. Marys. He had been instrumental in numerous community projects over the years, a staunch Democrat and a mentor to many.
The memorial tree and accompanying plaque can be seen at the St. Marys Peace Garden in downtown St. Marys next to the historic Oak Grove Cemetery.
DoCC at Women's March in Fernandina, Atlanta & Washington, D.C.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who canvassed throughout the county in 2016. We left voting material with roughly 800 residents and spoke to a huge number of citizens about the Democratic Party. We also phoned close to 2,000 county residents encouraging them to get out and vote. Shown below are a few of our dedicated phone-bankers taking a photo break.

DoCC Meeting June 2018
A big thanks to local and out of town Democrats who came out and supported the DoCC in the City of Saint Mary's Independence Day Celebration by marching in the morning parade and manning an information booth throughout the day. If you were not able to make it this year, plan on joining us next year! Thanks!
