The Fairfax County Democratic Committee, or FCDC, is the largest official Democratic Party organization in Virginia—more than one thousand members strong. Representing the Democrats in Virginia’s largest jurisdiction, FCDC is critical to ensuring Democratic victories in Virginia, with about one in five Democratic votes coming from our county.
We work hard to ensure Democratic victories, here at home and across the Commonwealth. Our network of volunteers gets voters out, provides rides to the polls, and has observers there to ensure that every vote is counted. We engage with the community to educate on Democratic values and issues, building our support and engaging the community for good.
For decades, FCDC has held an annual dinner where we celebrate our previous year’s accomplishments and award some of our most dedicated volunteers. For the first time this year, our event is called the “Blue Fairfax Dinner”, and we think it is a really big deal.
While the founders of our country and party have certainly made indelible marks, they don’t fully represent the ideals and aspirations of the Democratic party today. We remember our history with a clear eye on the future, as we continue to Move Virginia Forward.
Under two years of Democratic control, Virginia made tremendous progress across the board, from enacting common-sense gun safety to an increased minimum wage. With statewide Republican victories last year, our progress is under constant threat. The impending overturning of Roe v. Wade reinforces that we need firm Virginia protections for our rights. Our school board is under unrelenting GOP attack.
Ensuring Democratic majorities in Virginia starts in Fairfax County. With the potential for Virginia House races this year and with a clear view of the dozens of races for the control of Virginia and our County next year, our work to build our message and capacity is already underway.
