Thank you for volunteering!

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the SDC. They keep our office running, find people to run for office, communicate with the public and the press, and work on campaigns. That's why volunteering with the SDC is one of the most impactful ways you can help to further Democratic causes and ideals.

When you join the committee, we suggest you make a completely optional donation of $40, or whatever makes sense for you; a screen to do so will pop up after you submit the membership form. Remember: This donation is entirely optional -- your time, energy, and talents are worth much more than a monetary donation.
