WHO WE ARE
Did you know that Democrats outnumber Republicans
in Dorchester County?
We do! And we are working to show our true blue colors to our neighbors,
our state and our nation!
The Democratic Party is represented by two different groups in Dorchester County.
The official organization is the Dorchester County Democratic Central
Committee (dorchesterdems-md.com), organized under the aegis of the
Maryland Democratic Party (mddems.org).
The DCC’s purpose is to elect Democrats up and down the ballot. We do that by recruiting candidates, presenting them to voters, and after the primaries, throwing our full support
behind the Democratic slate. The DCC organizes get-out-the-vote activities such
as house parties, candidate meet-and-greets, sign distribution, mailings, flyers,
etc. There are up to 14 members on the gender-balanced DCC, distributed
across Dorchester’s council districts (and we are recruiting)! Our monthly
meetings are open to the public.
Contact Dorchester Dems@gmail.com if you want to get engaged.
WHAT WE DO
Working closely with the party, the Dorchester Democratic Club provides space
and time for Democrats to be Democrats together. The Club respects and welcomes
all Democrats and promotes activities and goals of the Maryland Democratic Party
throughout our county. In addition to frequent social events, the Club has been
active in Blue Waves on Route 50, local marches for social and economic justice,
distributing signs, and electioneering. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more
details about the Club.
Both groups work to support our party’s principles of social equity and justice across the
realms of health care, reproductive rights, education, child and elder care, housing,
criminal justice, and the environment.
