North River Democrats Are Making Waves!

Our club provides social outreach to Democrats in the North River area. We host a variety of educational and social events designed to create a sense of cohesion and support for its members and to increase participation by other area Democrats.

We also provide opportunities for our members to participate in political action activities for increased voter participation, election of Democratic candidates and advocacy for specific political initiatives endorsed by the Democratic Party.

North River Democrats work collaboratively with the Manatee Democratic Party, local caucuses, and other area clubs to build a broader coalition of Democratic action in Manatee County and the Central West Coast Florida area.
