New Reformers 101: Running for Party Office
DATE: Wednesday, February 9, 2022
TIME: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
RSVP: Register using this link.
In October 2019, a diverse group of activists organized a launch event that would change the political landscape of Queens. Ready to do it again?
Since then, we've recruited, trained, and uplifted over twenty grassroots candidates for party office. The result: over 50% of them won their elections! They put in the work. We supported them along the way. Now our local Democratic Party in Queens is a little more reflective of our communities.
On November 8, 2021, we kicked off the 2022 election season with a launch party that had over 60 organizers, activists, and Democrats from all over New York City.
Please join us for this virtual forum as we prepare the next wave leaders to reform our local democracy.
