The other activities Gretta was involved in that did not include Carter directly but more surrounding the Democratic party are her support materials and other items of interest to Dewald. The folders labeled 'Democratic Party: Misc' consist of support materials from other states Rules Committees from which Gretta used as models and guides on how to construct her own Georgia Democratic initiatives for Georgia. Most of these folders are copies from other states Democratic Party handbooks, bylaws, action plans and other manuals.
