CANVASS TRAINING

The Roanoke City Democratic Committee, in conjunction with the Women’s March in Roanoke, is hosting canvass training this Thursday, March 11, 7:00pm – 9:00pm at the Grandin Co-Lab.

We are looking to reach out to voters who only vote in presidential elections and understand their motivation.  We want to activate folks who want Democratic Party representation and get them involved in the process of winning back our House of Delegates and maintaining the Governorship.

This is a critical step in reforming our region and electing Democrats, and we need your help!

CALL TO CAUCUS TO ELECT DELEGATES FOR CENTRAL REORGANIZATION

The Roanoke City Democratic Committee has posted the process for reorganizing our congressional district committee of the Democratic Party of Virginia.   This important caucus will allow members of the party to select folks to sit on the district committee.   These people will become part of the State Party Central Committee, and the chairs of the Congressional Districts shall sit on the State Party Steering Committee.

These are important positions, and we need active participation in order to make our party strong.
