Sellersburg Celebrates!


Our “Dunk a Democrat” event at Sellersburg Celebrates! was a huge success. Thank you to all of you that participated and/or donated to help with this event. We raised over $900 of pure profit. With this money, we will be able to orchestrate more community outreach, help support our candidates and start turning Clark County blue again. But more importantly, we were able to engage with the community more than we have at any other event this year. People were able to see us having a good time and being friendly to all that came our way. Through continued community engagement similar to this, we will be able to let Clark County know that Democrats are not the snobby elitists we’ve been accused of being. Again, I want to say a huge thank you to all involved.

Building Bridges for America presents "Say This, Not That: Control Your Democratic Narrative"

The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work and then they get elected and prove it..”

  • the freedom to be You!
