At the Convention, delegates will approve the platform which defines what the party will stand for in upcoming elections, hold breakout sessions on organizing and running political organizations, and have opportunities to meet and talk with candidates in this fall’s elections. The Convention will be held at the DCU Center, Worcester on Saturday, June 3, 2017, beginning 10:00 am. Note that the location has been changed.
The caucus was very well attended, and we did not have time to do the scheduled training on how to use Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda. Citizens are using Indivisible strategies to advocate their positions with their elected officials at meetings and Town Halls across the country. Ward 19 is pleased to offer this training for Ward 19 Democrats and to encourage use of Indivisible. We have postponed this to our upcoming business meeting on Monday, April 3, 2017, at Farnsworth House, 90 South Street, Jamaica Plain.
