Upcoming Events

Tenth Dems is an all-volunteer grassroots group, but we've developed a wide reach. We put in a lot of effort to get the word out about events in the area. Keeping people informed and active is key to electing more Democrats. Tenth Dems plays a role in that, and frequently other groups use our list to inform their own members. It's very time-consuming, but we want to get it right. In order to be included in the weekly events email, please click here to submit events for consideration (ideally by midday Monday), so we have time to get it ready.
