June 2017 Events

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017
Join us on Saturday, June 3rd at 10 a.m. at Honcho (3 East Church St, downtown Clarkston). We will be participating in MDP’s weekend of action canvass!  This is part of the MDP’s Project 83 initiative in which all local clubs throughout the state will reach out to voters in their area in order to identify democratic voters and to determine what issues matter to them most on a local level. These efforts are essential in strengthening our base and building our community outreach to get our message right to our neighbors in our area. This first canvass will be focused on identifying issues that matter most to people in our area. These efforts are important to take back our democracy. I hope you can join us!!
*We will meet at Honcho’s at 10 am.
* We will distribute walk packets which will include a map, script and list of doors to knock on.
* We will pair people with seasoned canvassers when possible.
* At the conclusion of canvass, we will meet back at Honcho’s to hand in our completed packets to designated NODC member in charge of collecting the materials.
* Have fun!  Canvassing is a blast!  A good way to get to know other Dems and to really be in the fight for change.
