Northside Democracy for America is a grassroots political organization serving the Chicago area. We're committed to electing socially progressive, ethically committed, and fiscally responsible candidates to all levels of government - local, statewide, and national.
We're affiliated with the national group Democracy for America.
Join us at our next monthly meeting! We usually get together the second Wednesday of every month. However, due to the unprecedented impact of the current health crisis, and in accordance with the guidance from local and state experts, we are moving our meetings on line (to Facebook) for the foreseeable future. The next one will be Wednesday, June 10, at 7:30. We'll send out an email beforehand to give you the details.
