Updated 4/22 with hosting candidates!

We have warmly welcomed all D candidates running for office and our elected officials in office to join us for a chance to meet with and bring out 36th voters.


The event will not have a formal speaking platform, beyond a welcome and thanks to our hosting candidates. The idea is to offer a kind of “cocktail hour” where constituents and candidates / electeds can all mingle and speak on a more personal level about our hopes for the city and our party.


Invite all of your friends!


All Ages “Cocktail Hour” where constituents and candidates / electeds can all mingle and speak on a more personal level about our hopes for the city and our party.

The goal here is to encourage more of our population to become civically engaged, grow the Democratic party, and vote.
