Tenth Dems University

Tenth Dems University doesn’t have a campus, hasn’t hired a full-time faculty, and has no plans for homecoming festivities or fielding a football team. What we do offer, however, is a chance for you to become a better-educated voter, a more active and effective political volunteer, and to learn the skills you need if you ever want to run for public office.

Important: Many of our recent courses have filled up quickly. Be sure to register in advance. Seating may be limited.

What: Join Tenth Dems and Lake Dems on Monday, March 8, at 6:00 PM, for a another edition in our continuing Tenth Dems University’s (TDU) Let’s Talk Politics (LTP) series.

We’ll chat about whatever political issues you want to chat about and we’ll have fun doing it with each other. Democrats are welcome.  The Zoom link will be sent the day of the event.

Let’s Talk Politics is a moderated discussion and allows opportunities for Democrats in and around the 10th District to talk about important issues of the day with each other and guests that often include elected officials, candidates, political analysts, and authors.
