Juneteenth!! HD8 Representing!!

Saturday, June 18, 2011 - 10:00am - 6:00pm
Location: 
Historic 5 Points :: Welton St. between 24th and 29th

What is Juneteenth?  

Juneteenth, derived from a portmanteau (word fusing together two functional words) of the words June and nineteenth, is also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day. Juneteenth marks the anniversary of June 19, 1865, the day that Texas slaves learned they were free.

The first commemoration of June 19 was held in 1866 in Texas, where in 1980 it became a paid, state holiday, and spread to other states when African Americans moving away took their commemorative activities with them. Author Charles Taylor stated, "while the painful side of slavery makes it difficult for many blacks to celebrate Juneteenth, it is the positive legacy of perseverance and cooperation that makes it impossible for others to ignore."

Now 26 states recognize Juneteenth as either a state holiday or state holiday observance, including Colorado.

THANK YOU FOR COMING OUT!!!

Precinct Committee Person Handbook

Author: 
Democratic Party of Denver

Click here to download the Democratic Party of Denver's Precinct Committee Person (PCP) Handbook.

PCPs are the people who make up the grassroots of the Democratic Party of Denver. There are two PCP’s for every precinct.

This is a wonderful place for someone who is new to the Party to get their feet wet. PCPs are responsible for helping with all campaign activity in their precincts.

What’s a precinct? It is the smallest unit into which the state is divided for voting/tracking purposes. It is based on voter registration. Each precinct is roughly (ideally) 1500 or so registered voters. Some are more some are less due to population shifts around the City. Establishing precinct sizes and boundaries is a function of the County Clerk.

How often are precincts re-distributed? There is no set limit on how often this can be done. For practicality’s sake it is usually only done shortly after reapportionment, and was just done in early 2012. However, if a precinct suddenly becomes very over-populated due to new development, the County Clerk can decide to go ahead and divide that precinct into multiple precincts.
