2017 Summer Convention

There are countless opportunities to get involved with the new Shelby County Democratic Party. On July 22, 2017, we convened to elect 130 NEW leaders to the SCDP Democratic Grassroots Council. These leaders will elect the 2017-2019 Chair of the Shelby County Democratic Party (AUGUST 5, 2017) and serve as organizers in their respective districts.

Big Changes Mean Big Opportunities!

Germantown Democrats has a long history with the SCDP. We are excited about the newly structured Party and believe opening the Party up for new members and focusing on Organizing will allow Democrats in Shelby County and Tennessee to succeed in 2018 and beyond. We are looking forward to helping, and know that together we will win!!

Collaboration On The Ground!

Resistance activists in Shelby County are eager to bring about big changes in our nation and in our own neighborhoods. Indivisible Memphis is not only resisting Trump and the harmful GOP agenda, but we’re informing and encouraging West Tennesseans to become engaged in city, county, and state politics as well. I am encouraged that the new SCDP is inviting activists to contribute their voices and enthusiasm through the Democratic Grassroots Council, and I look forward to working together on our shared goals of electing progressive candidates up and down the ballot.

Co-Chair, Indivisible Memphis
