After the disastrous 2016 Election, millions of us committed ourselves to getting more involved in civic life. One urgent task we face is building a Democratic Party ready to meet the challenges ahead. As part of that effort, the Haverford Democrats are forming six new teams. Each team has a specific focus and together they will create a more inclusive, connected and effective local Democratic Party. Membership is open to all Haverford Democrats, so send an email to the contact person for the team you’d like to join. Teams will start meeting in September.

We all have a role. What will yours be?
