We’re WJCC Dems!

We fundraise, campaign and get out the vote. We host speakers and candidate forums, write postcards, make phone calls and connect with our neighbors. And in the process of electing Dems and making government more responsive and more representative, we have a lot of fun.

Join Neighbors United for Change

We’re launching NEIGHBORS UNITED FOR CHANGE, and we hope you’ll sign up to be involved. These groups, organized at the neighborhood level, will work to identify and communicate neighbor-to-neighbor and friend-to-friend. Want to organize an interest group you’re involved with, or a group of your friends? That works too. Or if you’re already a part of an existing neighborhood group, we’d love to work with you.
