VID was honored to wish happy Holidays to all our friends and fellow strategists. Thank you for joining us. More than 200 activists and electeds filled Frieda Bradlow’s home with the buzziest conversations on Sunday, December 10th. As “Happy Holidays to All Democrats” rang loud throughout, the rumbling of new strategies, lists of new action networks, vows to press on dominated the afternoon.
