Supervolunteer of the Week

This week we’d like to highlight the great work of Gwena Mason, one of our superstar phonebankers. Below she tells us why she’s in the fight.

Why are you a Democrat?

My grandfather was a strong democrat in the 1940's and advocated for voter registration among minorities in New Orleans. He experienced intense adversity because of his conviction to get as many of his peers registered as possible, which created an even stronger drive. His children and their children followed suit. To this day, my family of democrats feel it's the party of the people - that's why I'm a democrat.

Why is volunteering important?

I love the connection with people and helping people. It comes from the heart and what better way to help the democrat party?! Leathia West has helped show me how to help in Maryland campaigns and I'm glad! I am a volunteer for life!
