Five Reasons to Join
1. Building Electoral Infrastructure
Our county’s foundation isn’t built on presidential campaigns. With a permanent organization in place, the WCDP is prepared for every election. Whether it’s electing a candidate or passing a ballot initiative, success depends on the ongoing ground game of local volunteers.
2. Sharing Information
Digital tools like the website, newsletters, and social media provide news and action initiatives that the local community might not know about otherwise. More volunteers means more opportunities for the party to create and share vital information about local politics.
3. Empowering Local Communities
Working with the WCDP means working with our local Democratic Party affiliates and other organizations aligned with Democratic values to offer invaluable programming about local issues and outreach opportunities that benefit our communities. Visibility and engagement are the heart and soul of local politics.
4. Leading a Grassroots Movement
There is an ongoing effort by county activists to strengthen party organizations in all 83 of Michigan’s counties. Growing the WCDP by rallying everyday citizens provides the people power needed to make sure our state and national leadership understand the importance of local issues, even if they don’t make headlines.
5. Reforming the State Party
Members have a voice and a vote at the annual conventions where the direction of the party is decided. Members can run for a delegate position or vote for delegates to the various bodies that define the direction of our Democratic Party. Rules, resolutions, and leadership are all determined by members.
