Democrats Old and New! Room for everyone in the DuPage Democratic Party


At this year's DPDC Presidents' Day Gala, you will get a real feel for the full history of this organization as we honor pathfinders like Tinker Harvey, Bill Redmond, Elaine Libovicz, Jane Spirgel, Jim and Mary Eleanor Wall. You will also have the opportunity to honor the newest inductee into the lineage of recipients of the Tinker Harvey Pioneer Award. (You can still donate to Tinker's Memorial Signature for the ad booklet page here. Proceeds given to Juvenile Diabetes in her name.)

At the same time, we welcome into our party hosts of new Democrats who have:

*just arrived in DuPage from more liberal places and bring their Democratic expectations to their       new neighborhoods

*who had been marginalized culturally but now feel included,

*who were previously nominal Republicans but now see our party shares their values more closely

Let's ask these new Democrats to keep risking and to step up to the table to broaden our coalition. Let's keep talking about what we value and why that is what will make out county and country healthy, wealthy and wise.
