Thanks for visiting our events page!

If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.

DPMC Office in Woodstock, IL

REV Project McHenry

Join us in The REV Project- Recruit, Engage, Vote!

This is a grassroots Democrat-to-Democrat outreach effort to identify those who share our Democratic values and engage them to vote.

This is THE most important election of our generation. We need every Democrat to vote in November. To do this we need to first identify and connect with them, then get them to vote. The REV Project will do this, but we need you to make it happen.

We will be meeting every Sunday at the DPMC Woodstock Office to head out in teams to reach those who share our values. You will receive top-notch training before you head out into a neighborhood. Come with a friend or we will pair you up. All you need to bring is your charged phone, comfy shoes, and a smile.

Let's work together and win our democracy back.

This is a working session.

Our list of jobs gets longer every week. We need lots of help.

Come when you can and stay as long as you can. Even a few minutes helps.
