April 2017 Events

 UPCOMING EVENTS FOR APRIL 2017

This monthly list of events includes regular meetings and special events of Democratic clubs and caucuses, as well as other organizations’ meetings and special events, including some that are church-sponsored, which we believe may be of interest to our Democratic members. Please be assured that we do not endorse any particular religion or faith (just as churches are not supposed to endorse political parties or candidates). However, as Democrats, we share with many religious organizations a passion for social justice and the political empowerment of people who are underserved. We are more than happy to forward announcements of events and programs which focus on social justice and are sponsored by religious organizations.
