Our mission, values, what we do, who we do it for, and why we'd love you to join us.
We've become the number one Democratic vote-producing ward in Chicago. Let me say that again, Chicago is one of the most Democratic cities in the U.S., and the 47th Ward Democrats turns out the most votes for Democrats in Chicago!!
That also means we have the most say when it comes to deciding who the Cook County Democratic Party will endorse in our Primary election (*-slating/endorsements is done by weighted vote based on Democratic turnout in your ward).
We have not always been the best Democratic turnout Ward in Chicago. In fact, in 2014 we slipped all the way to 34th out of 50 Wards. But we turned it around by opening the organization to a new era of Democratic activists, while still embracing a robust precinct operation.
This 2022 primary season, we are registering voters and collecting signatures to get strong Democrats on the ballot. Then we are all in to elect them to office in November 2022. Will you join us? We strive to stay in the top Democratic voting ward in Chicago, but we can't do that without you. We also know that our organization only gets stronger with the inclusion of new and diverse voices. We would love to have you join us, we are truly making a difference in bringing progressive change to the city of Chicago, the state of Illinois and the White House.
