The Movement Conference
The Movement Conference is where data meets purpose to build a powerful progressive community. It is a hybrid event welcoming organizers, data practitioners, non-profit staff, and our wider progressive community into a shared space to learn new technical skills, discuss challenges and opportunities facing progressive non-profits, and build on shared resources to advance the movement.

CHESTERFIELD TOWNSHIP DEMOCRATS WILL NOT BE MEETING IN OCTOBER OR NOVEMBER. We have talked to many of the candidates in the area who have asked that in lieu of our meetings that our members donate at least two hours of canvassing or phone banking. If you are unable to help in those ways, try to donate what you believe two hours of your time is worth to the candidate of your choice!
SPREAD THE WORD, VOTE IN THE MIDTERMS LIKE YOUR DEMOCRACY DEPENDS ON IT — BECAUSE IT DOES!
