We had our Annual Pasta Dinner on Nov. 3 so our next meet up will be the Holiday Party!
The Holiday Party will take place on December 13, 2023 at the home of Lori Jouppi. This will replace the December meeting. More information will be available closer to the date and all are welcome!
Please join us for our major fundraiser of the year! It's sure to be a fun evening with like-minded people! We are excited to announce our keynote speaker, Senator Jeremy Moss and our Emcee, Lori Goldman. We will also hear from candidates as the 2024 elections will be only a year away!
State Senator Jeremy Moss is the President Pro Tempore of the Michigan Senate, where he is also serving his second term. Always looking to build relationships across the aisle, Moss has successfully had legislation signed into law to reduce unfair employment barriers for people with past criminal records, help homeowners make home improvements by lowering property taxes, allow public-private partnerships to rebuild crumbling bridges, and to create more pathways for students who dropped out of high school so they can complete their degree. He also was instrumental in amending the Elliot Larsen Civil Rights Act. Moss holds the distinction of having been the youngest-ever elected official on the Southfield City Council (2011) and has not let up on public service since. After City Council, he was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives, serving as the Democratic Caucus Whip, and then became the Assistant Democratic Leader in his first term in the Michigan Senate.
Moss earned his bachelor’s degree in journalism from Michigan State University, where he participated in multiple student-led humanitarian aid missions nationally and across the globe. He lives in Southfield.
Milan Peele is confirmed as our speaker to discuss the UAW Stand Up Strike, what the membership is fighting for, why those demands are so important, and how the community can support striking auto workers.
The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), social distancing and having to quarantine ourselves for an undetermined amount of time are taking their toll on all of us. We wanted to make sure to reach out to our valued members and check-in on your well-being. Please feel free to contact us if you are in need of any assistance. We are happy to check-in, via phone or video, and see if we can connect you to the right resource for help.
Keeping our local Democratic community safe and strong is of the utmost importance to us. I'm also listing some possible resources and volunteer opportunities.
Please take care of yourselves and we hope to see you soon.
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the
ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” - Barack Obama
The Canton Democratic Club was formed in 2013 to elect democrats, advocate for progressive values, and build progressive leadership. We believe that democracy thrives when informed citizens actively participate in the political process through advocacy, action and discussion. Unfortunately, we now see how fragile our democracy can be. Everyday, it seems as if we are witnessing an assault on the values that we hold dear. Ill-conceived tweets from the White House seek to divide us and threaten our faith in our democratic institutions. There is a systematic dismantling of our healthcare, voting rights, civil rights and economic security.
Now is the time for action! We must work for change and it begins within our own community. It is a day to day, issue by issue battle which requires us to be united as a party as never before with battles to come including healthcare, taxes, climate and the next Presidential Election in 2020.
We are your neighbors, your friends, your school teachers, your union members, and your elected officials. We have close to 200 members. Every day we are building a larger, more diverse and inclusive membership. The Democratic Party in Canton is stronger than ever. Join Today!
Membership meetings occur the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7pm-8:30 pm, followed by a social hour at a Canton establishment. Our meetings provide an opportunity to learn from a variety of speakers invited to discuss hot topics in all levels of government, plus updates from our Elected Representatives.
The Club provides us with an unparalleled chance to meet candidates and ask questions about their platforms. In fact, leading up to the 2020 primary elections, most Michigan candidates running for local, state and federal contests spoke at least once at our meetings or events.
The Social Event Hour occurs immediately following our monthly meetings from 8:45-10pm. We believe that our community has many great things to offer and we want you to come and experience them with us. Each month the Canton Democratic Club chooses a different Canton business to go to after our monthly meeting. This is an opportunity for club members, guests, volunteers, candidates and elected officials to gather in a less formal setting to get to know each other on a more personal level while trying the many different restaurants and gathering places throughout Canton Township. We advertise the locations of our events each month on our social media pages. Please join us at one of our monthly Social Event Hours. We look forward to seeing you at the next gathering!
Past Social Event Hours were held at:
Tony Sacco's Pizza
Shakers Bar & Grill
La Shisho Palace
Buffalo Wild Wings
Basement Burger Bar
