Support the Tippecanoe County Democratic Party

Join us this April to support the Tippecanoe County Democratic Party!

The goal of our Spring into Action campaign is simple: 200 members to donate $10/month!

With all that is going on with the Trump administration and the Republican majority, we feel it is extremely important to keep a physical presence with our 826 Main St HQ, as well as up our online game with the building and launching of a new and improved website. Your $10 a month recurring donation will help with these things as well as help with the following: our data committee can have the tools they need to continue analyzing data so we can use it to better target voters, enable us continue our monthly candidate trainings, help with regular precinct committee engagement, and continue things like our monthly cocktail hours, book discussions, and community service events. All of these things play a critical role in keeping voters active and involved as we move forward to 2018!

You can learn more about the campaign here.
