Organizing Corps 2020
This new group, partnering with the DNC, is recruiting and training 1000 highly skilled, highly local field organizers in key cities in 7 states that Hillary should not have lost. Several of us attended a presentation on what the group is doing and it's encouraging.
Town committees are the grass roots of the party. Without us a lot would not happen.
We meet monthly, usually the 3rd Thursday of each month. Check the calendar. All are free to visit to our meetings.
We are dedicated to electing Democrats, influencing legislation, supporting state party platform issues, and educating about what needs to be done and how to do it.
We seek motivated new members! We have openings for officers! Check us out by visiting a meeting:
