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.

What’s new

  • Sign up here to greet voters at early voting locations at the James City County Rec Center and Williamsburg Municipal Center this Friday, April 23 or on the two Saturdays of early voting, May 29 and June 5.

  • Help Del. Mike Mullin’s team connect community members with COVID vaccine appointments and other services. Quick Zoom training to start, then make digital calls. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 – 6:30 pm. Sign up here.

  • Willing to provide campaign housing for young staffers for Mike Mullin’s campaign? We need housing for three fully-vaccinated young people, one woman and two men, starting at the end of May/early June. Send us an email with your contact info and we’ll get in touch.

  • Join Dr. Mark Downey for a listening session Tuesday, April 27 from 7-8 pm. Dr. Downey’s campaign is off to an amazing start, outraising his incumbent opponent 4-1, but he needs our help and input.

  • Congratulations to Supervisor Jim Icenhour, our Democratic candidate for James City County Board of Supervisors, Jamestown District. The caucus scheduled for Thursday evening, April 22, is cancelled; no other Democratic candidates filed by the April 20 deadline to challenge Jim.

Join Neighbors United for Change

Give some thought to joining NEIGHBORS UNITED FOR CHANGE. Organizing at the neighborhood level helps us recruit volunteers and communicate about important issues 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.
