Lisa M. McDougald is a dedicated Santa Clarita Valley Democrats volunteer and our June Volunteer of the Month! Lisa said this about why she volunteers:
“I have been a voter my entire life and on occasion, I would write a letter to my representative or sign a petition. In 2016, everything changed for me. I realized voting was not enough and how fragile democracy is. I began to invest more of my time and money toward activism.
As an American, I believe in the gorgeous words of our Founders, the Constitution, and the historical texts that birthed it. As a woman, the women who fought hard for Women’s suffrage and contemporary warriors like Stacey Abrams fighting for fair elections in all states motivates me to serve the best that I can, give what I am able and support those fighting the good fight.
I am proud to support those in the SCV community who, in the words of the late Congressman John Lewis, ‘get in good trouble, necessary trouble.’”
We’re so grateful for the help that volunteers like Lisa give to our organization and community every day. If you’d like to volunteer too, just contact [email protected] and Julianna will get you started.
